Q: What is the difference between Arbor Terrace of Athens and a nursing home?
Similar on the surface, senior living communities and nursing homes are not the same. They are different types of residences - an assisted living residence may not substitute for a nursing home and vice versa.
Unlike a nursing home, Arbor Terrace of Athens is a non-medical retirement community. Their assisted living and memory care programs do not provide ongoing medical attention and their staff is not equipped for skilled nursing care. As such, the community is not covered by Medicare and residents may not use their plan to pay for room and board.
Nursing homes offer an entirely different level of care, providing health care services and medical attention. Their services may be ideal for someone living with chronic illness or injury, where personal care is not enough to meet their needs.
However, Arbor Terrace works in conjunction with nearby hospitals and universities to provide high-quality care on-campus. It does not qualify as skilled nursing care, although residents are welcome to make such arrangements with a third-party care provider if needed. Assisted living and memory care fees will not cover the cost of third-party skilled nursing care.
