Assisted Living FAQs
Those considering assisted living options at Oak Trace often have many questions. Here are some of the most common questions we receive from prospective residents.
An assisted living residence is often the preferred choice when someone needs help with daily tasks, such as taking medications, bathing, dressing, eating, transportation and housekeeping. Our assisted living services are ideal for people who want to live as independently as possible, but need extra assistance to do so. We design every detail to best support your or a loved one’s individual needs, all within the comfort and privacy of the assisted living apartment. We strive to provide the resources you need to enjoy our social, educational and recreational activities.
Traditional nursing homes specialize in caring for older adults who have extensive health care requirements. At Oak Trace, our assisted living residents consist of independent-minded people who want the assurance that extra help is there when they need it. All of our assisted living residents are supported by a highly trained team of professionals that can provide as much or as little around-the-clock assistance as required. However, should the need arise, we also offer skilled nursing, rehabilitation, dialysis and memory care services.
While policies vary, an individual’s health insurance program or long-term care insurance policy may reimburse some costs associated with assisted living. Life insurance conversion benefits and veterans benefits may also be used to cover some of these costs for those who qualify.
Yes. Oak Trace residents can schedule transportation at no additional cost to anywhere within a 10-mile radius of our community. Residents can schedule transportation to destinations outside of that 10-mile range for an additional fee. Our on-site concierge can help with scheduling.
No, we purposefully leave our assisted living apartments unfurnished. This gives residents the freedom to customize their space in whatever way they choose. Residents often bring in beloved belongings from home, but they can also start fresh with new furniture, artwork and more.
Of course! However, when choosing what to move, be sure that your new space can accommodate everything you plan to bring. Pick the items that bring you the most joy!
As a Life Care community, Oak Trace offers a full continuum of care. We provide rehabilitation, memory support, dialysis and skilled nursing care at our on-site health center. Whatever your level of ability, our expert team is here to assist and accommodate your individual needs.
