Assisted Living Communities are known by various names such as Personal Board and Care Homes, Residential Care Facilities, and Alternative Living Residences. Assisted Living Communities offer options for people whose care needs fall in between independent living and nursing home care.
There are many community options available with various levels of care and billing rates. Searching for and finding the right residence for your loved one that will meet both their care needs and their financial budget and can be an overwhelming process.
Finding the assisted living community that best matches your loved one’s personality and care requirements is very important to ensure they will feel at home in their new environment and make a comfortable transition. When touring a facility, in addition to a clean and safe atmosphere, notice how the staff interacts with the residents to get a feeling of their approach to care. Seeing happy, smiling residents who are engaged in activities and socializing with each other is a sign that they are well cared for and comfortable in their community.
At the Courtyard of Loveland, our goal is to encourage all residents to live with as much independence, privacy, dignity, and individual decision making as possible with the least restrictive environment in our home-like setting while offering gracious and loving care assistance as needed. A personal care allowance of five hours per month is included in the basic room rate. If and when a resident should require more care, our personal care team can provide assistance at an hourly rate. The Medication Administration Program is billed as a flat monthly charge to residents.
Our billing system is not a graduated level of care fee basis but rather services are billed on an as needed basis as residents receive services. This billing structure allows residents and families to receive the precise services they need with no hidden fees. The Courtyard of Loveland remains committed to delivering comprehensive, high quality care at rates that make it the best value for assisted living in Northern Colorado.
