Frequently Asked Questions

What is Assisted Living?

There are many Assisted Living facilities for family members and seniors to choose from; each one serves a different purpose, depending on the needs and types of health care the resident requires and desires.

Unlike skilled nursing facilities and Memory Care communities that provide medical care, Assisted Living is focused on helping seniors with the activities of daily living and residential care. Signs that Assisted Living may be an appropriate option for you or a loved one include:

  • Needing help with medication management
  • Noticeable weight loss or gain
  • Loss of mobility or increase in falls
  • Neglecting household maintenance and chores
  • No longer able to perform daily tasks of grooming and preparing meals
  • Increased isolation

Families will have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are living healthy, independent and active lives. They’ll have more time to focus on spending time together and enjoying all life has to offer.

For added peace of mind, our specialized Memory Care program, Flourish℠, is available on-site.

What is the difference between assisted living and a nursing home?

Overall, the main difference between Assisted Living and care offered in a nursing home is that nursing homes provide medical and personal care in a clinical setting, while Assisted Living primarily provides personal care in a homelike, social setting.

Who qualifies for assisted living?

Seniors whose health or well-being requires a higher level of support or those who would benefit from a healthier lifestyle and social engagement. Most communities conduct a health assessment that follows state regulations to determine what level of care or assistance is best for each individual.

What are the average costs of assisted living?

The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2021 estimates the Linden, MI, area's regional median monthly rate for Assisted Living is $4,220, which breaks down to around $136 per day. To put that into some context, the same survey says a private room in a nursing home will cost around $268 per day ($8,316 per month). Home health aide services average $153 per day.

Charter Senior Living of Linden’s Assisted Living services start at $3,900 per month.

Who pays for assisted living?

While your personal health insurance coverage continues and your pharmaceutical coverage continues, Medicare typically doesn’t pay for Assisted Living. Most Assisted Living residents pay for this kind of care from their personal resources or with help from coverage provided by long-term care insurance. Veterans benefits can help cover the cost for eligible Veterans and surviving spouses who are over age 65.

Do you offer Respite Care or trial stays at your community?

Yes! For family caregivers who need relief or a temporary care solution, we also provide Short-Term Stays. Just Like Home Respite Care provides all the amenities and Assisted Living care services offered to full-time residents.

This offering is one of our many Assisted Living lifestyle benefits. Your needs are important to us, so our goal is to provide personalized service and satisfaction every moment of every day.
