What is “residential” assisted living?

When you picture an assisted living facility, you think of a building with many rooms (or apartments) and many people either working or living there.  There is a big parking lot and a “directory” and elevators and a lot of things going on.  While this may be the first choice for some, there might be those who prefer a more quiet, intimate environment.  Residential assisted living homes are located in neighborhoods and look just like a typical home.  They are designed to give those living there a feeling that they are still “home”.  There are many of the same things offered at a residential home as there are at a larger facility such as therapies, activities, meals, assistance with daily activities, and more.

What makes Two Hearts Homes for Seniors different from other assisted living facilities?

“When I had to help look for a home for my Grandma after my Grandpa passed, I was discouraged at what I saw in most facilities.  Although they were clean and had many things going on, I know that my Grandma was very overwhelmed.  I thought ‘why couldn’t she just live somewhere that resembled an actual home and give her more one-on-one care?’ I want to make a home for the elderly that I would put my own Grandmother in.” –Janel (co-founder of Two Hearts Homes for Seniors)

Two Hearts Homes for Seniors is a residential home that provides care to seniors who require help with typical daily activities.  Because the maximum number of occupants at our residential assisted living home is 16, Two Hearts has a lower resident-to-caregiver ratio.  This means that resident needs can be met almost immediately when needed.  The environment of Two Hearts Homes for Seniors is intimate and cozy, giving those who live there a feeling that they are not lost or forgotten in a large group of their peers. There are also options for quieter moments in the spacious private resident rooms.

Do you accept medicaid?

No we are a private pay home.  Some people are on a waiting list for another facility, meanwhile they are living in our home and we coordinate it with the other facility to where its getting close to all of the clinets money being spent, we then make the seemless transistion to the next assisted living home.  

Do you have a visiting physician?

Yes we do.  We have Dr. Sinha from House Call Doctors doctor that comes through every few weeks asking how residents are doing.  If you would like to keep your doctor you can but its very convenient to have doctor that comes to the home every few weeks.  

What do you mean by “all-inclusive” senior living?

All-inclusive means that we charge a flat rate for all services and amenities in our home.  There will not be an “a la carte” menu of add-ons such as an medication package, laundry etc.  There are no hidden costs.  This ensures that all residents receive the care they need and families do not have to worry about additional charges for a change in care.  This also allows for easier budgeting.

What are your terms of your leases?

We offer month-to-month rental agreements. There is no long-term commitment or “buy-in” to our assisted living buildings. If a resident decides to move out our home, for whatever reason, there is only a thirty (30) day notice required.

Do you offer respite services?

Depending on resident occupancy, yes we will offer respite services as long as we have the room available.  Fees will be discussed prior to move-in.

Do you accept Long Term Care Insurance?

Yes we do!
