Q. What makes Hilltop Village Senior Living unique?
A. Our building design is one level, Hilltop Village residents enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that they may move into an apartment at an “independent level” and have the opportunity to receive care services, when desired, without moving to another location. Residents appreciate the freedom to obtain assistance within their Hilltop Village suite by Resident Companions they have developed professional relationships with and grown to trust.
Q. What is the difference between an independent senior apartment, an assisted living apartment, and a nursing home?
A. Independent senior apartments typically offer an apartment within a community with select amenities that may include meals, housekeeping, laundry services, maintenance, and life enrichment activities; home health services may be available.
In assisted living, residents enjoy their own apartment and additional community areas for life enrichment and entertaining, meals, housekeeping, maintenance, and laundry services as well as receive assistance from specially-trained staff with activities of daily living (ADLs): medication administration, mobility, showering and bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, and psycho-social programs. Specialized memory care or memory support programs may be included and often in a secured neighborhood of apartments with staff who are educated to work with and provide understanding care and services.
In a nursing home, residents require a higher acuity of care and services (including skilled services as defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid) delivered by a skilled provider at an intense rate of care like tube feeding, wound management care, IV therapy, and 5-day/week physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy. Hilltop Village is not a nursing home.
Q. How do I pay for Hilltop Village Senior Living?
