Frequently Asked Questions
Will my insurance pay for services?
How much a 3rd party payor will contribute towards skilled nursing care depends on the individual policy coverage guidelines. One of our admissions directors would be happy to sit down with you to help you assess your particular situation.
What is Respite Care and who is it for?
If you are caring for your loved one and need a temporary break, the Village has an ideal solution. Respite Care is a program at the Village where residents can stay for a short period of time. Respite Care is ideal for families who need short term assistance in caring for their loved ones (i.e. they are taking a vacation). It is also ideal for seniors who require rehab services, or physical or occupational therapy.
How long can a resident stay in Respite Care and what services are offered?
United Methodist Village offers short-term stays of a minimum 7 days and a maximum of 13 days. A resident in Respite Care will receive all the same wonderful benefits as our other residents. They will have daily activities, access to our salon, drink coffee in our courtyard, join in our theme days, and more! Just be prepared, they might not want to leave!
What is Alzheimer’s and who is affected by this disease?
Alzheimer's disease is a brain disorder and is the most common form of dementia among the elderly; it involves the parts of the brain that control thought, memory, and language. One out of every three families is affected by the disease. This disease is the most prevalent and devastating illness of seniors and seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities.
What can I do to help a loved one who is battling Alzheimer's?
As Alzheimer's disease progresses, care can become more stressful and complex for the caregiver. No two people experience Alzheimer's disease in the same way. As a result, there is no single approach to care giving.
What are the activities you have for the residents at United Methodist Village?
Activities will be meaningful, have purpose, be voluntary, feel good to the participant, and offer the resident with Alzheimer's a reasonable chance of success. Our Activities staff schedules activities for multiple levels of resident ability that are interesting and creative. We take pride in our Activities programs for their innovation and commitment to providing quality, meaningful daily and special activities for our residents. Enhancing the quality of life and well being of our residents is our activity department’s first priority.
