Questions About Richfield Living from Seniors and Families
Q: Is Richfield Living a for-profit or not-for-profit senior living community?
A: We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. As such, we are able to offer the highest quality of care at the most affordable prices. Through careful stewardship of resources and generous donations, we are able to invest in our community, in team member training and education, in our buildings and also offer financial aid for residents who experience financial difficulties.
For-profit communities on the other hand, direct profits to shareholders.
Q: How many days a week do residents receive rehab?
A: While that answer varies depending on the resident’s individual care plan, rehab services are available 7 days a week at Richfield Living.
Q: I’ll be having hip replacement surgery soon. My surgeon is recommending short-term rehab for my recovery afterward. Is it possible to take a tour and set up my rehab before I have the surgery? I’d like to have everything arranged before I go in to the hospital.
A: Planning for your recovery will give you confidence and peace of mind. That can help alleviate some of the stress most people feel about an upcoming surgical procedure.
At The Rehab Center at Richfield Living, our Pre-Planning Program provides you with an opportunity to do just that. You can come for a visit and tour, meet the team members who will be involved in your rehab, and have all of your questions answered. We can even schedule your transportation from the hospital to our community.

Q: How many residents do your nurses and certified nurse aides care for at one time?
