Common Questions About Assisted Living

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.

Assisted living is an excellent option for those who need extra assistance with tasks such as taking medications, bathing, dressing, eating, or maintaining their household. These extra services allow individuals to continue living independently but with an added level of care to simplify daily life. Every detail is designed to provide an individualized level of support in the comfort and privacy of the resident’s apartment while offering numerous opportunities to enjoy all the social, educational, and recreational activities here.

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 who 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.

Insurance policies vary, but many health insurance programs and long-term care insurance policies reimburse select assisted living costs. Many residents also use life insurance conversion benefits and veterans’ benefits to cover costs as needed.
