What is a LifeCare Community?
Formerly known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), it is a special combination of housing, hospitality and wellness services, plus comprehensive health care — all on one campus.
What does “no buy-in” and “no entrance fee” mean, and how do they relate to LifeCare?
LifeCare is your guarantee that you will be provided with lifetime care. It means you have a home for life, which differs from “no buy in” or “no entrance fee” rental retirement communities, which only offer monthly services. At The Farms at Bailey Station, LifeCare provides security and financial peace of mind.
Who is eligible for residence at The Farms at Bailey Station?
The Farms is designed to serve adults 55 years of age and over. Anyone who is able to live independently and qualify financially may apply for residency.
May I bring my pet?
Yes, pets are welcome in your new home.
Will I be free to come and go as I please?
Absolutely. We do ask, however, that you let us know when you will be away for an extended length of time so our staff and your friends and neighbors will not be concerned in your absence.
Under what circumstances would I have to give up my apartment or garden home?
During short-term illnesses or recovery from surgery, your apartment or garden home will await your return just like your present home. However, if it becomes clear you need a level of care that is not available in your apartment or garden home, you may move to assisted living, our rehabilitation and nursing residence, or our memory support residence. One of the most important advantages of being a member of a LifeCare Community is that if you become ill you will not have to leave your home at The Farms.
Are there services available for preventative care and wellness?
Our wellness team is available to customize individualized wellness and prevention programs designed to maximize your health and wellbeing. Our medical team is available on-site to service a variety of your health care needs.
If it becomes necessary for me to move into assisted living or the rehabilitation and nursing residence, will I ever be able to move back into an apartment or garden home?
Absolutely. If your health allows you to resume an independent lifestyle, the first available apartment or garden home will be yours.
May I have guests?
Of course. Your guests are welcome to enjoy any of the clubhouse amenities and are welcome to stay overnight with you. In addition, guest apartments are available for your convenience for a nominal fee.
What does it cost?
Residents pay a one-time entrance fee and a monthly maintenance fee based on the size of their apartment or garden home, the number of persons, and their individual plan and fee schedule.
Is my monthly maintenance fee subject to change?
Yes, but RCA-managed communities experience some of the lowest percentages of increases in the country. We make every effort to keep monthly maintenance fees as low as possible, but fees must be able to respond to costs of operations in order to ensure quality services for our residences.
Will I have to assign any of my property to The Farms at Bailey Station?
The Farms residents pay a one-time entrance fee and a monthly maintenance fee.
Can individuals access the medical community without being covered under LifeCare?
Yes. Non-residents may be admitted to assisted living, the rehabilitation and nursing residence, or the memory support residence on a private pay basis. However, LifeCare residents are given priority status.
What are the living areas available at The Farms at Bailey Station?
The Farms is a 37-acre gated campus that includes independent living garden homes and apartments, assisted living, rehabilitation and nursing care, and memory support.
What is memory support?
The Farms is dedicated to providing around-the-clock care for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our residence provides individuals with freedom and also supervision and gentle guidance. A unique loop design provides residents of memory support with an unobstructed path to move freely throughout the residence. Our specialized nursing staff receives continuous training to stay abreast of the latest behavior studies.
