As a Continuing Care Retirement Community, one of the most valuable services we provide to all Life Lease members of Friends Fellowship is guaranteed priority access to comprehensive nursing care if it is ever needed. Staffed with professional nurses, nursing assistants, activity assistants and other support staff, the Health Care Center at FFC is licensed by the Indiana State Department of Health as a Comprehensive Care Facility. The Health Care Center offers long-term care as well as respite or recuperative care for those needing comprehensive nursing care on a short-term basis.

DISCOUNT DAYS FOR LIFE CARE MEMBERS

Each Life Lease resident on admission to FFC and every year thereafter on their admission anniversary will receive ten (10) discount days or days where the daily Health Care Center fee is waived.  These discount days may accumulate for three (3) years, or to a maximum total of thirty (30) days.  Since choosing to discontinue our participation in the Medicare program, FFC offers two options to Life Lease residents who have been hospitalized for at least four days in a row.  The first option is for the resident to come to the Health Care Center and receive a maximum of thirty (30) consecutive days, free of the daily charge and thirty (30) consecutive days of physical therapy if needed, at no charge.  These discount days are available after each qualifying stay in the hospital.  If the resident is discharged from the Health Care Center during this thirty (30) day period, the remaining discount days are lost.  The thirty (30) discount days from a qualifying hospital stay are in addition to the ten (10) discount days accumulated per year, on the admission anniversary as described above.  A Life Lease resident who has lived at FFC for three years could potentially have a total of sixty (60) discount days after a qualifying hospital stay.  The second option is for the Life Lease resident to elect to receive Medicare coverage by requesting admission into a facility that participates in the Medicare program.
