How do I know if basic care is the right choice?
Basic care, similar to assisted living, is ideal for people who can still live independently, but need extra assistance with daily tasks, including taking medications, preparing meals or doing housework and laundry. Our trained, caring staff members provide individualized support designed to help each resident maintain their highest level of independence.
Are there financial restrictions? Is assistance available to pay for basic care?
The state of North Dakota does have a Basic Care Assistance Program. To be eligible for this program, a resident must meet certain criteria defined by the state, including being eligible for Medicaid. For more information and to determine whether you may be eligible for assistance, visit the state’s Basic Care Assistance Program Frequently Asked Questions web page.
Can I have visitors in my home?
Your guests — grandchildren, family members and friends — are always welcome to visit you in your home, and they’re more than welcome to enjoy our recreational facilities, dine and participate in activities with you while visiting.
Are pets allowed in basic care?
Most of our communities, including those with basic care, are pet-friendly and welcome dogs, cats, birds and fish upon approval through our Pet Admissions Program. Be sure to ask about the pet policy, approval process, and pet-friendly areas of the community when you visit. All our communities accept service dogs and certified companion animals.
Can basic care residents bring a car?
While many residents who still drive do bring their cars, the transportation options provided by our communities usually make a car unnecessary.
