Is transportation provided?
Yes! We provide transportation to and from all scheduled activities in our 15-passenger van. In addition, we offer transportation to one individual appointment per month. A nominal fee may be assessed for additional personal appointments.
Do you charge extra for services, for example, assistance with bathing or dressing?
Activies of Daily Living (ADL's) is a term encompassing dressing, bathing, meal preparation, housekeeping, etc. Our monthly service fee includes assistance with these services. Before a resident moves in to Highlands Senior Living, the admissions director will meet with him or her to develop a written care plan outlining the specific ADL assistance they require. The only extra charge we assess at our Main location(Roving Road) is for incontinence care. At our Memory Care Center it is included in the all-inclusive pricing.
Are personal care homes licensed in the state of Georgia?
Yes. Highlands Senior Living communities are surveyed annually by the state. Surveys may be viewed online at http://www.dch.state.ga.us.
Do you accept Medicare/Medicaid?
No. HIghlands Senior Living is private pay. Medicare is for hospital expenses or nursing home care, and we are not a medical facility. Medicaid does not cover personal care homes.
