Frequently Asked Questions
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 specific room you may desire.
Do you offer respite care?
Short-Term stays are available but a minimum of 14-days are required, at this time. After 14-days, only 48 hours notice is required when you are ready to head home.
Will my relative have to share a room?
All resident rooms are private. No shared rooms.
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?
An initial community fee is in place to hold your desired room and complete admission assessments. As with any assisted living, 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 can then 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.
Do you have physicians on staff?
We have visiting physicians that will follow residents during their stay at College Manor Assisted Living. Our nurse can arrange for one of the five to be a resident’s primary care doctor or residents can maintain their current physician.
