College Manor for over 60 years in Maryland

We Have Answers

Do you have an availability?
We are here to help in a short period of time, although there may be a waiting list for the exact room you may desire.

Will my relative have to share a room?
All the rooms are private.

What about furniture?
We can furnish the room at no extra cost. We encourage you to furnish the rooms with the things that are familiar and personal.

Is there an entrance fee?
We do not ask for an entrance fee, although we do require a signed contract prior to admission.

What happens if the care needed progresses to a point of being beyond your care level?
We are a Level 3 Assisted Living with a core staff with more than 20 years experience taking care of seniors at our Lutherville, MD location. As a normal course there are very few problems that progress and cannot be supported in our environment. Most people who come stay and their needs are supported with therapies through Hospice care if desired. Care that we cannot safely support usually requires a hospital stay. A social worker then can assist with options for placement.

Does Medicare pay for any of the room rate here?
Medicare only pays for skilled care for a limited time out of the hospital in an acute care setting. Assisted living is not a subsidized setting in this case. Medicare, however, pays for therapies such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and skilled nursing visits in this setting and for the majority of the equipment that might be needed.

What happens if my relative’s money runs out? Will she have to move?
We strongly recommend that everyone adds themselves to the Registry for Medicaid waiver. The waiting list is quite long for this subsidy but if your relative has been at College Manor for a year we will work with you until that subsidy might be available. We also suggest that you look into the stipends offered by the VA (and possibly the Warfield Foundation).
