You will also pay a monthly rental fee for your apartment, and only pay for healthcare services if and as needed. The result is the peace of mind of a Life Plan community with the flexibility of renting, where you control your own wealth.

When is assisted living the right choice?
When a person can live mostly independently but needs extra assistance with daily tasks, assisted living may be a good step. While not 24/7 care — that’s skilled nursing — every detail in the community is made for an individualized level of support in the comfort and privacy of the resident’s apartment. There is also an abundance of opportunities to maintain an active lifestyle filled with friends, neighbors, and family. Assisted living residents also have access to many of the amenities and programming of independent living.
How does assisted living differ from a nursing home?
Assisted living communities assist when needed and encourage residents to maintain independence and continue their desired lifestyles. Nursing homes provide residents with 24/7 support and assistance.
Does insurance cover assisted living?
Assisted living is private pay but those with long-term care insurance policies will want to contact their carrier to understand what is covered. Life insurance conversion benefits and veterans’ benefits are also good options for those who qualify.
Are assisted living apartments furnished?
We provide a furnished apartment for trial stays when available. Otherwise, you can bring your favorite furniture and belongings, start fresh, or utilize Edgemere’s design center. In the design center, interior design experts are available to assist with furnishing and decorating your apartment.
How is memory care different from assisted living?
The memory care neighborhood in The Plaza at Edgemere is a supportive environment, intentionally designed for the unique needs of those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Specially trained professionals work with residents and their family members to create familiar schedules and surroundings. Each apartment and every shared space has been thoughtfully created to reduce confusion and improve the residents functionality. The environment is safe, secure, and curated to celebrate every individual’s life experience.
What kind of support does memory care provide?
Memory care is tailored to the individual and includes specialized therapies, programs, and care plans designed to improve daily living for those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
How is memory care staffed?
Residents are supported around the clock by licensed professionals who are highly trained in caring for those with memory loss. Each team member brings a passion for providing dignified, respectful care.
What is skilled nursing?
Skilled nursing is an environment where care is available around the clock, staffed by licensed professionals. One may opt for skilled nursing services if their health requires consistent medical attention.
How does skilled nursing differ from assisted living?
- Assisted living care professionals help, as needed, with activities of daily living, which can include basic healthcare needs
- Skilled nursing professionals are available 24/7 to care for an individual’s medical and personal needs
When is skilled nursing necessary?
Skilled nursing is appropriate for people with medical needs requiring specialized care and who are not safe living at home. Most often, candidates for long-term skilled nursing have an ongoing health condition or permanent disability. They may be affected by chronic illness or the natural symptoms of advanced age.
Are there enrichment opportunities for skilled nursing residents?
Absolutely. Residents can choose from a full calendar of interesting and stimulating opportunities, including cultural and social events.
Does Medicare pay for skilled nursing?
Yes. With a qualifying hospital stay, Medicare covers days 1-20 of skilled nursing and rehabilitation. A Medicare-set daily coinsurance rate is assessed for days 21-100. Medicare payment rules are very stringent and vary depending on several factors. Your out-of-pocket expenses may vary based on any supplemental insurance coverage you have. Visit Medicare’s Skilled Nursing page, and be sure to check your plan details for more.
