Assisted Living & Memory Care
Is It Time To Consider a New Home?
Julianne with Oasis Senior Advisors provides a free service to help older adults find safer living and care options. When you work with an Oasis Senior Advisor, we’ll help you understand the ideal care setting for you or your loved one, identify potential communities that meet your criteria, schedule tours, and attend the tours with you to help make sure you ask the right questions. We consider your budget, preferred location, Medicaid and social needs in helping to find the perfect home for you or your family member. You’ll have a dedicated point person who is HIPPA compliant—meaning we will not share your contact information with anyone, including a facility, until you give your permission.

Medicare does not cover the cost of any long-term residential care, such as assisted living, memory care, or nursing homes. If you are a resident of one of these facilities, Medicare-covered health services provided by the facility are covered as they would be in any living situation. Medicare does not, however, cover any of the costs of residency or any day-to-day care costs to help with things like dressing, bathing, or eating. Services may be covered for short-term stays, but only under specific circumstances and for certain facilities that provide skilled care, such as nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities.
The majority of senior living communities allow pets, including assisted living, nursing homes, and independent living communities. It’s not unusual for the community to have rules or restrictions on the size or type of pets accepted. For example, some facilities may not allow certain dog breeds, or may require pets to weigh less than 20 pounds. Exotic animals such as certain birds or snakes may not be allowed in every building. If you’re looking to bring a pet into your new living arrangement, talk to your Senior Advisor about your furry friend to make sure that we find a community that’s compatible.
If you have the luxury to plan ahead, it’s always great to start as soon as possible. Six months or even a year prior to moving into a senior living space is an ideal timeframe to begin making plans—even if you’re still deciding where you will end up. If you don’t have that much time, that’s okay, too. Our team can help advise you on how to organize, what to plan to bring, and how to handle what’s being left behind. Moving is stressful at any stage of life, but with a Senior Advisor on your side, you’ll know exactly what to do. Let us help you get a plan together.
