Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How do I know if Flagstone is right for me?
When people need mild to moderate help with their eating, dressing, bathing, and other daily activities, retirement living communities (like Flagstone) can be an outstanding alternative to nursing homes for some people. Like nursing homes, Flagstone offers long-term care, but their programs do not include skilled nursing services for people with chronic illness or injury.
- Prospective residents can ask themselves a few simple questions to find out if Flagstone may be right for them:
- Is the person ambulatory, or are they confined to their bed?
- Does the person need ongoing medical attention for chronic illness or injury?
- Does the person have Alzheimer's disease, short-term memory loss, or dementia?
- Does the person need rehabilitation (speech therapy, physical therapy, etc.)?
To live at Flagstone, a person must be ambulatory. The community is not prepared to help people who are permanently confined to their beds and may not admit applicants who are bedridden. The same rules apply to people who need ongoing medical assistance - Flagstone is not licensed to provide long-term skilled nursing care and may not admit residents who require it on a daily basis.
People with Alzheimer's and dementia may consider Flagstone for long-term care, thanks to their non-medical Alzheimer's care services. Flagstone’s In the Moment® program considers each person’s individual needs, creating a care routine ideal for their dementia journey. The community is equipped for all stages of memory loss, giving people with Alzheimer’s disease a place to thrive as they navigate life with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Q: How do I know if Flagstone’s In the Moment Memory Care Program is right for me or my loved one?
Living with Alzheimer's and dementia can be challenging. It is important for people with memory impairments to find the right care programs so they can have a happy, fulfilling retirement. Flagstone’s In the Moment program makes living with Alzheimer’s and dementia easier for older adults, thanks to their outstanding memory care services, individualized care plans, and patient staff.
The staff work one-on-one with memory care residents to understand their needs, their concerns, and their preferences. Staff members engage with residents through structured activities, stimulating their minds and helping them learn to live with their symptoms. They are equipped to help people with mild to severe memory loss, including late-stage Alzheimer’s disease. However, their Alzheimer's care services are strictly non-medical and people who need skilled nursing care may not be a good fit for the memory care program.

Q: How much does it cost to live at Flagstone?
There are no one-size-fits-all monthly fees for Flagstone residents.
