The Courtyards provides compassionate care to individuals with dementia. This philosophy is reflected in everything about The Courtyards – from the environment, team structure, policies and procedures to family involvement and support. We understand how challenging a diagnosis of dementia can be for the entire family, and we believe you will find that The Courtyards is a very special setting for your loved one to call home.
Philosophy of Care
Residents who live within The Courtyards have a diagnosis of a dementia. Therefore, their functional and social skills will differ from what is commonly considered typical for our society. We recognize that quality care begins with an understanding that a mentally and/or physically impaired and dependent person is just that – a person. We view each resident as a multi-dimensional person with a unique life story. We believe that challenging behavior associated with dementia should be viewed as an unmet need rather than a deliberate attempt to be difficult. Every resident deserves respect and the chance to maintain his or her dignity as a person.
Friends Fellowship Community offers two residency options for people requiring dementia care – the “Life Care Guarantee” option and “Private Pay” option. The Life Care Guarantee 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 for life.
LIFE CARE GUARANTEE OPTION
Requires payment of a Life Lease in the amount of $32,000; plus,
PRIVATE PAY OPTION AND RESPITE PROGRAM
Does not require payment of life lease, but private pay and respite residents may be asked to relocate, upon 30 days notice, if accommodation is needed for a life care resident or funds are depleted.
LIFE LEASE FEE CONVERSION CREDIT
Rental residents may apply for Life Care membership at any time. Ten percent (10%) of each month’s paid rental fee will be credited toward your Life Lease fee. The maximum credit allowed for one person is $6,000 and for two people the maximum is $12,000. Upon conversion to a Life Care contract, the monthly/daily fee will be reduced to the current monthly/daily fee in effect for Life Lease residents.
