Find Out What You Need to Know

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from those interested in our assisted living neighborhood. Read on to find out more about Farmington Presbyterian Manor. If there’s a question we haven’t answered here, contact us today.

  • Are you a part of the Presbyterian Church? Do I have to be Presbyterian to come here?

    We were founded by the Presbyterian Church originally, but formed a faith-based, non-profit organization several decades ago. We are not technically affiliated with the Presbyterian Church anymore. You do not have to be a Presbyterian to live in our manor – all faiths are welcome. Our church services are non-denominational and led by area pastors of different denominations. We also have weekly Catholic rosary services and monthly mass.

  • When is the right time to move into an Assisted Living community?

    When seniors reach the point where they need a little extra help with daily tasks, they sometimes wonder if they are ready for an assisted living community. Perhaps, the concern is costs, or the hassle of moving, or perhaps they associate assisted living with nursing homes. We know it can be a difficult, deeply personal decision, but we will say that an assisted living community is far from a nursing home. Our seniors maintain active social lives, and they set their own daily schedules. They live in private apartments but enjoy having a maintenance-free community and the little bit of extra help that comes with assisted living. We are here to support you while you live the way you want to live.

  • What are my Assisted Living options?

    We offer beautiful studios and one-bedroom suites in different floor plans.

  • What is the difference between assisted living and residential care?

    Residential care is part of assisted living at Presbyterian Manor and refers to a section of assisted living in which the doorways are not ADA compatible. For this reason, a person that uses a wheelchair frequently cannot stay in the residential care section. Aside from this, all the services and amenities are the same.

  • Do you have additional storage?

    We can direct you to convenient storage units nearby. In addition, we can provide expert assistance in rightsizing. A move of this kind usually requires anticipating future needs and making some tough decisions about furnishings and possessions. We can help you in planning. We will work with you personally to ensure the choices you make are right for you and consistent with the way you want live.

  • How do your fees work?

    Monthly assisted living fees begin at $2,732, based on floor plan and level of services needed. A second-person fee applies for double occupancy, and it varies based on level of services needed. Contact us to learn more and take the next step in your journey.

  • What are my funding options?

    Independent and assisted living are completely private pay, though some are able to take advantage of a veteran’s aid and admittance fund for veterans and their spouses. The veterans program is run by the government and is need-based.

  • What will Medicare pay for?

    Medicare does not cover assisted living fees. Medicare will only pay for a person’s skilled nursing stay if they had a qualifying hospital stay of three midnights or more. Medicare is a federal program designed to cover the cost of a skilled nursing stay when someone has nursing and therapy needs in order to regain their strength. Medicare allows up to 100 days, but only if the patient demonstrates a need for it. Often, Medicare discharges patients before the 100-day mark.

  • Why do you require a supplemental insurance?

    After day 20, Medicare does not cover a large portion of the cost of stay. The supplemental insurance covers this gap. Some for-profit nursing homes do not require a supplemental insurance, but Presbyterian Manor does because we are a non-profit organization that is not able to cover that gap if someone is unable to pay for it personally.

  • What types of security do you offer?

    We are a 24/7 secure facility with around-the-clock team members.

  • Do you offer a meal plan?

    Dining is an important component of our culture at Farmington Presbyterian Manor. We offer seasonal and always-available menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner so you can choose what you’d like to eat. All meals and healthy snacks are included in assisted living monthly fees.

  • Do you allow pets? Will you make exceptions to the pet policy?

    Yes, we do allow cats and dogs that weigh 20 pounds or less. All pets must be current on vaccinations. Unfortunately, pets weighing more than 20 pounds are not able to live here, but they are welcome to visit. We do not charge a monthly fee for pets, but there is a $500 non-refundable deposit upon move-in.

  • What are my transportation options?

    If you have been driving before you move into Farmington Presbyterian Manor, you may continue to drive. We also provide scheduled transportation for medical appointments, community and cultural outings, and more.

  • Am I able to have guests? Can they stay overnight?

    Yes, you are always welcome to have guests and they are welcome to stay overnight. We just ask that you let the nursing staff know when a guest plans on staying overnight. Also, guests are welcome to eat with you for a small charge. We also ask that guests sign in one of our guest books when they arrive.

  • Can I come and go as I please?

    Yes, you are welcome to come and go as you please. We just ask that you let someone on the nursing staff know in case of emergencies. Some of our assisted living residents still drive and we provide reserved parking spots for them.

  • What do the levels of care mean?

    In assisted living, level of care is determined by the amount of assistance needed on a daily basis. A resident who needs medication once a day is a much lower level than a resident who needs medications, assistance bathing and dressing and has health needs such as oxygen that require monitoring. We strive to offer the best quality nursing care as possible at a reasonable rate, which is the reason for our level of care price differences.
