Find Out What You Need to Know

The decision to move into a long-term care skilled nursing neighborhood can be overwhelming and difficult. At Farmington Presbyterian Manor, we work hard to help you or your loved one with the transition. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from those interested in our long-term care neighborhood. If there’s a question we haven’t answered here, contact us today.

  • What are my Long-Term Care options?

    We offer private and semi-private residences where residents can receive qualified, around-the-clock nursing care.

  • What is the difference between Long-Term Care and Assisted Living?

    Assisted living residents are more independent. Our assisted living residents may be able to perform more activities and can get around as they like. They may need help with certain tasks, such as housework or bathing, but they can perform many tasks on their own. Long-term care is a solution for seniors who need much more help from a dedicated caregiver, with tasks such as getting in and out of chairs, moving around and more.

  • What professional medical care do you offer?

    Our health services team is top-of-the-line. We have a dedicated skilled nursing team of RNs, LPNs and CNAs who provide 24-hour nursing care. We also offer a variety of physical, occupational and speech therapies customized to individual care plans.

  • How do your fees work?

    Monthly long-term care fees are determined by the type of residence and level of services needed. Contact us to learn more and take the next step in your journey.

  • Do you take Medicaid?

    Yes. We are licensed to accept Medicaid-approved residents on a limited basis.

  • What types of security do you offer?

    Long-Term Care at Farmington Presbyterian Manor is a 24-hour supervised community. We also have wandering alarms for added security.

  • What do residents or their loved ones need to provide?

    Farmington Presbyterian Manor provides the bed, nightstand and built-in chifferobe. Residents or their loved ones will need to provide TV, clothes, personal items, décor and any additional furniture.

  • What are your visiting hours?

    Our long-term care neighborhood is 24-hour secure facility. Visitors are welcome and encouraged any time, day or night.

  • Can couples live in Long-Term Care together?

    Yes. Couples may share a semi-private room in Long-Term Care. They will be billed separately.

  • Are pets allowed in long-term care?

    Residents are not allowed to have pets in long-term care or memory care, only in independent and assisted living. We do have therapy dogs that regularly visit, and families are welcome to bring well-behaved, vaccinated pets to visit.

  • Can my loved one go on outings?

    Yes! You have the peace of mind to know that our trained team members can help you determine whether an outing is appropriate for your loved one or not on a given day.

  • Are we able to do one-on-one activities with the residents?

    Yes, our activities team is able to do one-on-one activities with residents. We welcome requests from families and residents for this one-on-one attention.

  • Do we encourage residents to participate in activities?

    In skilled nursing, we realize that our residents are not always able to come to activities without assistance. With that in mind, activities and nursing staff will go to each resident’s room and offer to assist them to an activity. By removing barriers, we hope to encourage residents to participate.

  • What is our call light answer time?

    Our call light answer time is two minutes or less.

  • What do the levels of care mean?

    In skilled nursing, level of care is determined by how much physical assistance a resident needs to transfer out of bed or go to the bathroom. A level five or six normally involves a Hoyer lift and 2-3 staff members.
