Below are answers to frequently asked questions.

Just call us at (540) 380-4500 – option 1 or toll-free at (888) 745-8008. We’d like to get to know you and understand what you’re looking for in a senior living community. We’d also love to give you a tour of our beautiful campus! One of our senior living counselors will be happy to help.

Our independent living residents have access to housekeeping and delivered meal service. A licensed nurse is available during the week for wellness checks. And complimentary transportation is provided to shopping centers, banks and recreational outings.

One of the major benefits of living at Richfield is the peace of mind that comes from knowing there is access to a full range of healthcare services without having to leave the Richfield campus. Rehabilitation, assisted living, and nursing care services are available for either short-term or extended stays. We provide complimentary transportation within our campus, to ensure that you’re able to stay connected with friends and family should your needs change.

Our admission counselors are experienced and are available to assess individuals to determine which services will best meet their needs. If the individual is unable to come to us, we will make arrangements to go to them – either at home or in the hospital.

Yes. We feel it is extremely important for residents to maintain a strong, continuing relationship with their physicians. It may be that  after moving to Richfield, your personal physician is not conveniently located, or is not able to provide you with the necessary services should you need assisted living or nursing care. In that case we’ll be happy to assist you in selecting a physician who will meet your needs.

The main thing to consider is the individual’s safety. If the individual is wandering, exit seeking and unable to recognize his or her surroundings, memory care is recommended. Richfield provides memory care programs in both our assisted living and nursing care environments. In assisted living individuals must be ambulatory, able to feed themselves and require the services of a secured environment. The Memory Care Program in our nursing center is for individuals who need a higher level of care and are in the more advanced stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s. Both of our programs are based on our ‘Dementia Possible Care’ Program.

At Richfield, we believe caring for individuals with memory impairment is a privilege and recognize that each resident requires a specialized approach to care which is unique to them. Therefore, our memory care program is designed to provide an environment that is nurturing, safe and comfortable.

Richfield is an independent, not-for-profit organization that was originally founded in 1934 (read more about our background) and is governed by a Board of Directors made up of dedicated individuals from the community. Together with our senior management team they guide and direct the growth of our organization. Richfield is not owned or affiliated with any entity. As a not-for-profit; monies are directed back into our community for program development and service enhancements rather than distributed as profit to investors.

The Richfield community is located on 50 acres and has a total of approximately 1,200 residents, patients and employees. The minimum age for residency in our independent and assisted living facilities is 55. Included in our community are 185 independent apartments, 14 Lake-Estate cottages, 236 assisted living units and 315 health care beds.

There are no large entrance fees when moving to Richfield. While all levels of care are available on our campus, you pay only for the services you need.

All fees are reviewed annually by senior management and approved by our Board of Directors and may be adjusted based on actual operating costs. We work hard to be good stewards of our financial resources. Our expenses are carefully managed; therefore, all fees reflect the lowest feasible rate to maintain sound financial practices and high quality services. A written notice is provided to all residents in advance of any fee increases. Please be assured that we make every effort to keep increases to a minimum.

This depends on the type of setting you are in. Medicare provides no reimbursement for assisted living or regular nursing care. Under certain limited conditions, Medicare will pay some costs for Medicare beneficiaries who require skilled nursing or rehabilitation services in The Rehab Center or Recovery & Care Center. To be covered, you must also meet a qualifying hospital stay of at least three days prior to admission to the facility. This coverage can potentially last for 100 days depending on the patient’s progress and continued care needs.

Richfield participates with all private insurances.  Before admission, our Admissions Team determines your insurance eligibility
and available benefits.

Medicaid is a State and Federal program that will pay most nursing home costs for individuals with limited income and assets. About half of all nursing home residents pay nursing home costs out of their own savings. After these savings and other resources are depleted, application for Medicaid can be made through the Department of Social Services in the county or city of the resident’s most recent home address. Richfield offers a Medicaid specialist on staff to assist you with this process.

Our residents come from a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences. It’s always satisfying to see how quickly new residents meet those with common interests and make lasting friendships.
