Frequently Asked Questions.
Questions and answers
What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)?
As your needs change over time, a Continuing Care Retirement Community gives you the confidence of knowing long-term care is available on site at predictable costs. We offer a range of levels of care for financial security and peace of mind.
What levels of care are provided at The Holmstad?
Senior living at The Holmstad means living independently while having on-site access to a comprehensive menu of health care services and long-term care. We meet the needs of our residents by providing the following levels of care:
- Residential Living (Independent Living)
- Catered Living (when you need a little help, but aren’t ready for assisted living)
- Assisted Living
- Assisted Living Memory Care
- Skilled Nursing
Who qualifies for Independent Living?
Anyone who is capable of handling their own care and coordinating services is welcome. We offer a range of attractive apartment, cottage and duplex homes to suit your independent living lifestyle.
What are the guidelines for Assisted Living?
Residents must need assistance with at least two activities of daily living, be capable of getting up and out of bed without the assistance of more than one person, and have a physician’s order.
Who qualifies for Skilled Nursing?
The Holmstad offers Skilled Nursing services to residents who need 24-hour skilled nursing care and have a doctor’s order.
Who determines the proper transition plan should a resident need to move to another level in the Continuum of Care?
This is a collaborative effort with the resident, family and staff. Residents and families typically make the decision to move through the continuum as needs increase.
What level of care is provided in Independent Living residences?
You have the ability to hire in-home health care services in your residence. We partner with CovenantCare at Home to provide home health care, should the need arise.
How does my Primary Care Physician fit into my health care program at The Holmstad?
You can continue to use your primary care physician. However, it is up to individual physicians to decide whether they will continue to treat patients who become health care residents of The Holmstad. If your needs change - making it more difficult to visit your physician - we have several who visit the campus.
What happens if a resident requires hospitalization?
We follow up with the hospital after any hospitalization in case you need short-term rehabilitation. Our goal is to serve our own residents first, and then community members.
How does medical insurance coverage work at The Holmstad?
It varies depending on level of care. It is best to consult with The Holmstad staff about your policy and how it works on our campus.
Are there any Social Service offerings or programming at The Holmstad?
Yes, we offer a variety of programs. Informative seminars are offered throughout the year on various health care topics. We try to work with residents to support their changing needs.
Is there a pharmacy at The Holmstad?
We do not have a pharmacy on campus, but delivery service is available.
Keep in mind, you do not have to be a current resident of our retirement community to benefit from our Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing or short-term Rehabilitation services, nor will you have to pay an entrance fee to enter one of the areas noted above. In our short-term Rehabilitation program, we accept Medicare and are in-network providers for a number of managed care and Medicare Advantage programs.
