Frequently Asked Questions
Making decisions about how — and where — you want to live often raises some important questions. That’s why we encourage you to “Just Ask.” You’ll find our staff at Farmington Presbyterian Manor eager to provide the information you need to make informed choices.
Here are five questions (FAQs) we’re often asked:
- Do your rooms include cable television and telephone? In order keep rates consistent and affordable, we consider in-room cable and telephone optional at the discretion of the resident or family. So most rooms do not include cable and telephone in the stated rate. We’ve found that since these amenities are available in most of our common areas, not all residents feel the need to have access in their rooms. However, each room is readily equipped for quick installation should the resident or family desire these services.
- Is there an age restriction for living within the Presbyterian Manor community? Yes, because we are a retirement community, residents must be 65 years or older.
- Will Medicare and/or other insurance providers help pay for the services we need? Some of the services we provide are billable to Medicare, depending on the living level and the most recent hospitalizations. For a more definitive answer, a Presbyterian Manor representative will be able to advise you based on your individual circumstances.
- Do you allow pets? Yes, Farmington Presbyterian Manor is a pet-friendly community. Independent and Assisted Living residents may have one small pet with a non-refundable pet deposit. Residents living in Health Care may enjoy visits from family pets. Pets must be on a leash in common areas and hallways and are not permitted in the dining areas at any time. For more information on the Farmington Presbyterian Pet Policy, please contact a Presbyterian Manor representative.
- Is there a deposit or application processing fee for Independent Living or Assisted Living? There is not a deposit or application processing fee for Farmington Presbyterian Manor Independent or Assisted Living.
- How do I know if my loved one needs memory care? If your loved one has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or another form of dementia, he or she will benefit from placement in a memory care neighborhood. Memory care neighborhoods are specifically designed to support the needs of individuals with memory loss, providing visual cues that will support your loved one in making the transition from home to a senior living community. Memory care neighborhoods also offer activities in smaller groups and individually that are designed to help a memory care resident reconnect with activities they enjoyed earlier in their lives and keep them engaged in the present through participation in those activities. If you are unsure if your loved one is ready for memory care, check out this resource from the Alzheimer's Association, Know the 10 Signs of Alzheimer's Disease.
