There may come a time when you require a little extra help with the activities of daily living.  An Assisted Residential Apartment gives you the independence and privacy you want in your own apartment, with the help you may need with bathing, dressing, medication management and laundry.

Apartment Features

  • Each apartment has a private bath
  • Plenty of closet space
  • 24-hour emergency nurse call
  • Optional kitchenette or walk-in shower
  • Sheers
  • Drapes and wall-to-wall carpeting
  • The building has a central thermal heating/cooling system with individual controls in each apartment.
  • Individual attic storage spaces are also available.

Services

  • Meal Service

    Three delicious meals a day are included in your monthly fee. Each meal features a variety of selections for every appetite and diet need. For those needing extra assistance, a member of our staff is always on duty in the dining room during meal times.

  • Housekeeping

    Once every two weeks, a housekeeper will thoroughly clean your apartment, including dusting and polishing furniture, vacuuming, and cleaning the bathroom. Spot housekeeping is done daily and includes bathroom cleaning, bed making and trash pick-up. On a periodic basis, windows are washed and draperies, sheers and carpets are cleaned.

  • Transportation

    FFC provides transportation to downtown Richmond, banks, doctors’ offices and other appointments via group van or personal car and driver for ambulatory residents. The wheelchair van is also available at no charge for local appointments. If an assisted resident requires assisted transportation (an attendant to stay with the resident) to a physician’s office or for out-patient hospital treatment, this service will be provided at the resident’s expense.

  • Laundry

    Once a week, your bed and bath linens and personal laundry are washed, ironed and returned to your apartment.

  • Nursing Services

    Licensed nursing staff is on duty 24 hours a day. All medications are dispensed by licensed nurses. Assistance is provided with bathing, dressing, and meal time reminders as needed.

  • Utilities

    All utilities, including expanded basic cable TV, are included in the monthly fee except for telephone/computer service.

  • Activities

    A wide and wonderful variety of activities, programs, and special events is available, and participation in activities is an important part of staying physically and mentally healthy. An activity calendar is always posted in each hallway.

  • Health Care Center Services

    Comprehensive nursing care services are available in the Health Care Center for temporary recuperative stays. While Assisted Residential residents are in the Health Care Center, the usual daily fee for Assisted Residential is waived. The daily fee for the Health Care Center is assessed instead.

  • Beauty/Barber Shop
  • Dry cleaning

FEE INFORMATION

Friends Fellowship Community offers two residency options for Assisted Living – the “Life Lease” option and the “Private Pay” option.  The “Life Lease” option offers a guarantee of care and accommodations for life regardless of future ability to pay, once a member is accepted.  The “Private Pay” option does not require payment of the Life Lease fee, but does not guarantee accommodations.  Private pay residents may be asked to relocate, upon 30 days notice, if accommodation is needed for a Life Lease resident or funds are depleted.
