Q: How do I know if Dorian Place Assisted Living is right for me?
Before considering an assisted living community like Dorian Place, there are a few questions prospective residents can ask themselves to find out if residential care is right for them:
- Is the person ambulatory, or are they confined to their bed?
- Does the person have chronic illness or injury that require ongoing medical attention or skilled nursing care?
- Does the person have Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or short-term memory loss?
- Does the person need rehabilitation?
Dorian Place, like many assisted living facilities, requires all applicants to be ambulatory for admission. The community is not a nursing home and is not equipped to help people who are permanently confined to their beds. For the person’s safety, the community may deny admission to anyone who is non-ambulatory.
People who require medical attention fall into the same category. As an assisted living community, Dorian Place is not licensed to provide ongoing medical assistance to people with chronic illness or injury. If a person’s symptoms can be managed with personal care, they may be admitted, but individuals who need continual skilled nursing care may not be well-suited at Dorian Place.
Unlike some assisted living facilities that have dementia care communities on-site, Dorian Place does not offer a special care program for people with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and short-term memory loss. Their staff can help families looking for Alzheimer’s care find a community in the area, but people with memory impairments Alzheimer's or dementia may not find the care they need at Dorian Place.
Q: Is Dorian Place a pet-friendly community?
Yes! Residents are welcome to bring their furry friends with them when they move into Dorian Place, provided they meet the residence’s pet guidelines. Large or aggressive animals may not be admitted, but the community evaluates each pet on an individual basis. Most small, well-behaved pets are allowed, with a maximum of one pet per apartment.

Q: Can I come to Dorian Place for respite services if I typically receive in-home care?
