Question: How often can family and friends visit?
Answer: We encourage our residents’ family and friends (including children) to visit as often as they like.
Q: Can residents come and go as they please?
A: Yes. Residents have the same rights living at Fellowship Home as they do in their own home. We do ask that you sign out before leaving the property.
Q: Are utilities included in my monthly charge?
A: Yes. Electricity, water, sewage, and pest control are all included. Basic expanded cable and Internet access are available for a nominal monthly fee. A common telephone is available for private use 24-hours a day. A private line in the resident’s room can be activated at the resident’s expense.
Q: Is living at Fellowship Home (or any senior living community) really cost effective?
A: Financially speaking, we have a “Compare Costs” chart on this web site to help determine whether it’s to your advantage to move in with us. The monthly cost pales in comparison to what you receive in return, considering lifestyle, convenience and security. What price tag can you place on “peace of mind?”
Q: My house is paid-off. Why should I consider living at Fellowship Home?
A: In addition to the answer above, here are three reasons: 1) you’ll avoid the personal hassle and repair costs associated with maintenance and upkeep of a home, 2) some people who live here decide to apply the value/equity from their home to cover many, many years worth of monthly charges and free themselves from the worry of covering the cost of Fellowship Home, and 3) when you consider the convenient, active, and safe lifestyle you’ll experience here, your quality of living increases immensely at Fellowship Home as compared to living alone.
Q: How is the food?
A: The food is both delicious and nutritious. Many of our residents list this as a favorite part of living here.
Q: Do you offer short-term living arrangements?
A: Yes. We offer short-term accommodations for individuals: 1) wanting to try it out for awhile, 2) needing respite care while getting your strength back from a recent surgery, or 3) needing care while your caregiver is away. For a stay less than 30 days, the special short-term rate will be applied.
Q: Can I bring my own furniture and accessories?
Answer: Of course. The rooms in the Laurel Oaks and The Elms Memory Care living areas are completely furnished, but we can remove as much or as little of our furniture as you choose to make room for yours. Furnishings are not provided for rooms in the Willow Wood living area, so you are welcome to decorate your room as you please. We can even help you hang your personal pictures on the wall.
