Frequently asked questions about our community.
What is the dining program?
At Laurel Crest, we offer restaurant-style dining prepared by our culinary team. Dining is à la carte (meals are served in courses) and our menu offers a wide variety of choices. One meal per day is included in the monthly service fee; however, additional meals are available and guests are welcome. Meal delivery to your home is also available, and all menus are approved by a registered dietician.
What health care is available?
As a Life Plan Community, often referred to as a CCRC (continuing care retirement community), Laurel Crest offers Independent Living and a full continuum of care. Just in case you ever need it, Assisted Living, Nursing Care and Memory Care are all available on site.
Does Laurel Crest accept Medicare or Medicaid?
We don’t accept Medicare or Medicaid at this time for monthly service fees. Medicare may cover medication, doctor’s care, durable medical equipment (wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds, etc.), therapy services, etc. However, long term care insurance and veterans benefits may supplement the cost of health care.
Do you have guest rooms?
Yes. Fully furnished apartments are available for overnight stays. The receptionist will be pleased to make your reservation. Rates are available from the receptionist.
What emergency systems are in the residences?
There is an emergency call system in each cottage and apartment home. The emergency call system is wired to a 24-hour monitoring station at the reception desk in Independent Living and at a central location in the health care center (where staff is on duty 24 hours per day).
What transportation services are provided?
In keeping with our commitment to maintaining the independence of our residents, we provide both scheduled and on-request transportation at no cost. We have various vehicles, including a mini-bus with a wheelchair lift, available for transporting residents to events, shopping and errands. And while you’re welcome to bring your car, you don’t need to be able to drive or have an automobile to live on and enjoy our campus lifestyle.
While most transportation is provided free of charge, unusual transportation requests or needs can often be accommodated for a nominal charge.
