Assisted Living is a residential and social setting where each individual can receive as much or as little care as needed. An Assisted Living residence allows people to maintain their personal best by pairing independence and stimulating social activities with support – including residential services, medical supervision, and personal care assistance.
Maturing is a natural process that extends over a lifetime. When an environment adapts to meet the evolving needs of older people, they are more likely to remain in familiar surroundings. “Aging in Place” allows comfort and continuity throughout those changes. With our “Aging in Place” orientation, most residents can choose to live with us as long as they desire.
We are proud of our policy, which allows luxury you can afford. An individual can “age in place” with
knowledge that, should assets be depleted, they can continue to enjoy the safety and comfort of their
Amber Court Assisted Living Community residence. Ask a Community Representative to discuss this policy

Loosely defined, Assisted Living is the union of residential needs and supportive care provided in a social environment. It is generally geared for the 65-plus population and designed to safely maximize independence. The model can be likened to a “senior citizen hotel”. While there are great advantages to this lifestyle, many would find the expenses extend beyond their financial reach.
However, for those who qualify, there is an affordable option – the Assisted Living Program (ALP). It serves people who are eligible for nursing home placement in a setting that is less medically intensive and more cost effective. Typically, ALP candidates struggle at home with activities of daily living (ambulating, eating, bathing, dressing, transferring, maintaining hygiene, etc.) While these individuals would clearly benefit from help, they would be considered too high functioning in a medical-model skilled care facility.
By utilizing community based Medicaid and monthly Social Security or Supplemental Security Income entitlements, participants are provided with: personal care, room, board, housekeeping, supervision, home health aides, various types of therapy, case management and other vital services. It should be noted that some medical issues exceed levels that the ALP can address such as a need for continual nursing care. Additionally, ALP residents cannot be chronically bedfast, chairfast, or impaired to the degree that they endanger the safety of other residents.
Some individuals have been approved for a Medicaid Managed Long Term Care Program and can be transitioned into the Assisted Living Community, when appropriate. Along with our Amber Court Representative and professional staff, eligibility requirements both medically and financially can be discussed.
