Q: How do I know if Keystone Villa at Ephrata is right for me?
As an assisted living community, Keystone Villa at Ephrata offers residential care services for people who need a mild to moderate amount of daily assistance. The community’s caregivers assist people with bathing, dressing, eating, meal preparation, housekeeping, and medication management.
Non-medical residential care is not a substitution for skilled nursing care. There are a few questions people can ask themselves to determine if assisted living is a viable option, according to their capabilities and daily needs:
- Is the person confined to their bed, or are they ambulatory?
- Does the person require ongoing medical attention?
- Does the person have Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or short-term memory loss?
- Does the person need therapy or rehabilitation?
To qualify for Keystone Villa at Ephrata, a person may not be confined to their bed permanently. Being ambulatory is a requirement for all residents, including those in assisted living, independent living, memory care, and respite care.
The same principle applies to people who need ongoing medical care. The community is not equipped to provide continuous health care services for its residents and may not be suitable for people who need daily skilled nursing care. A care adviser can help interested parties learn more about their eligibility, based on their daily needs and physical aptitude.
However, Keystone Villa at Ephrata graciously welcomes people with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and short-term memory loss. The community’s In the Moment® program is specially designed for people with Alzheimer’s disease, where staff provide state-of-the-art dementia care. The program assists people with all stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia, creating a secure environment where they feel safe and appreciated.
The In the Moment® memory care community has the same basic qualifications as assisted living - all residents must be ambulatory, and they may not require ongoing medical care. To learn more about the community’s admission requirements or to ask questions about their residential care services, prospective residents can use the link above to make an inquiry. Alternatively, the community offers tours where people can ask questions in person and see the apartments, common areas, and dining room for themselves.

Q: How do I know if Keystone Villa at Ephrata’s In the Moment® memory care program is right for me or my family member?
Navigating Alzheimer's and dementia can be challenging. As the symptoms progress, people may need help with their day-to-day activities, making retirement living a popular option for older adults with short-term memory loss or memory impairments. Fortunately, Keystone Villa’s In the Moment® program offers tailored memory care for people who need help adjusting to life with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Caregivers assist memory support residents with their activities of daily living, provide medication management, and offer housekeeping to make their lives simpler and worry-free. They work with each person one-on-one, getting to know them personally so they can provide accurate, individualized care. When they are not helping residents with their daily activities, caregivers participate in wellness programs and structured activities to help residents thrive. They use proven methods to stimulate their minds and memory, making them feel appreciated and understood along the way.
Keystone Villa accepts people with all stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia, provided they are ambulatory and do not require daily medical attention.

Q: How much does Keystone Villa at Ephrata cost?
Each person’s total monthly cost depends on their level of care, their apartment’s floor plan, and their living arrangement.
