Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we hear when building relationships with seniors and their families.
Both our assisted living and memory care residents pay an all-inclusive monthly fee. This fee covers all costs associated with rent, meals, care, access to amenities, and our activities - no hidden fees. Because we personalize each plan through an assessment with the resident, their family, and our team members, costs can vary.
We offer apartment sizes to fit everyone’s budget from shared apartments up to 2 bedrooms. All Dominion Senior Living communities offer apartments on a month-to-month rental basis; there is no long term lease or buy-in required.
FIND YOUR COMMUNITY
To see particular community prices, please visit one of our community pages. Start by locating your Dominion Senior Living assisted living and memory care community.
Our doors are open around the clock for family members. All we ask is that we know who is coming into the community and that these individuals are known to the resident. Families are asked to sign in and out with the community staff to ensure we know who is in our community at all times. We recognize that family interaction is important to the initial transition and ongoing lifestyle for the resident. With our 24-hour staffing, there is always someone to greet families when they come to see their loved one.
Dominion Senior Living offers a variety of senior apartment homes ranging in square footage. Our apartments range from studio to two-bedrooms. We also offer shared suites for memory care residents. All of our apartments are unfurnished to allow residents to create their own personal spaces with their cherished belongings. If you need assistance in furnishing an apartment for yourself or your loved one, our team members will happily help you through the process.
Medicare plans can be hard to understand and wading through the fine print can be daunting. Though assisted living and memory care services and housing costs are not covered under Medicare, certain medical needs such as pharmacy, hospitalization or physician visits may be covered under select supplemental plans.
In the event that a hospital admission exceeds a certain number of days and the resident discharges to a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF), Medicare may cover their stay in this higher level of care facility.
NEED MORE INFORMATION?
Absolutely! We feel it is important for each resident to experience fellowship with family and friends on a regular basis.
Our team’s goal is to make your move as smooth and efficient as possible. We are required to collect personal information from the states we operate in and we use this as an opportunity to get to know who our residents are as individuals. We learn what is important to them, whom they love, and how the Dominion team can support them once they become part of our family. We encourage our entire team to learn the unique life history of each of our residents and weave this into their daily life.
SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU MOVE:
CHANGE OF ADDRESS
Before you move in, take a moment to file a change of address with the United States Postal Services. You can do it online by visiting USPS.com or stopping by your local Post Office.
On your moving day, please bring with you personal information and legal documentation. Some suggested things to bring are identification cards, insurance cards, a list of emergency contacts, and any paperwork requested by the Executive Director or another team member.
FURNITURE AND PERSONAL BELONGINGS
This is now your home, so please bring furniture, decorations, and personal items with you for your apartment. Take this opportunity to make this space completely yours!
If you are assisting a loved one in making this move, encourage them to bring along only things they truly need and highly value. It’s important to smooth the transition to bring familiar items to help them acclimate to their new home.
