• What is an assisted living home? An assisted living home is a residential group home for seniors who require assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as feeding, grooming, toileting, bathing, housekeeping, laundry, and medication management.

 

  • What is the difference between an assisted living home and a nursing home? Residents in an assisted living home do not require 24-hour continued nursing services. However, certified caregivers are on-site at all times to provide flexible and personalized care and assistance with ADLs.

 

  • Do you accept residents requiring intermittent nursing care such as Home Health or Hospice? Yes

 

  • What makes Happy Together Assisted Living different from other assisted living homes? Happy Together Assisted Living is managed and operated by an experienced, energetic Registered Nurse. The owner is kind, generous, and loves making nutritious, tasty smoothies and refreshing juices for the residents.  Our certified caregivers are compassionate and dedicated. The resident-favorite staff member is a four-legged, furry, friendly, pet therapist whose specialty is spinning around like a figure skater and making residents smile.  We have musicians/volunteers who enjoy sharing their talent and brightening people’s day.  It is also a newly constructed modern home located in a quiet safe neighborhood. We are proud to have received a deficiency-free survey by the State again this year.

 

  • How do I know the assisted living home will be a good fit for my loved one? It may or may not be.  We encourage you to call and schedule an appointment for a tour of the facility and to meet with our friendly staff. We may also be able to make arrangements to meet you and your loved one at your loved one’s place of residency for your convenience.

 

  • Do I have to sign a minimum of a one-year contract? No, our contracts are month-to-month.  We also offer shorter term respite care as well. Respite is defined as 30 calendar days or less.

 

  • Will you be providing meals? Yes, our residents will be provided with three nutritious meals per day with snacks in between. Each resident’s food preferences are taken into consideration. Residents will also be encouraged to assist staff with menu planning.

 

  • Do you have activities for your residents? Yes, some of our activities include discussion of current events, chair exercises, playing cards and games, movie night, arts and crafts, music therapy, and walking/wheeling outside. Pastoral care is also available upon request.

 

  • Do you have both private and semi private rooms? We have private rooms, subject to availability.

 

  • Can I bring my own furniture and personal items? Yes, although we provide furnished rooms, residents may choose to bring their own furniture and personal items if they wish as long as they do not present any safety or health concerns.

 

  • Do you provide transportation to and from appointments for your residents? No. If family members are not available, facility will contact transport services for a fee to be paid by the resident or resident representative. It is family’s responsibility to arrange for a companion or sitter to accompany resident if resident requires due to health and/or safety needs. For non-hospice residents, 911 will be called for medical emergencies and family notified. Facility staff is not expected to leave facility premises and accompany resident to the hospital.
