Frequently Asked Questions About Edenwald
Do you have questions about life at Edenwald? Our senior living FAQs are here to help you make the best decisions for your future.
HOW WILL I GET TO KNOW MY NEW NEIGHBORS AND THE EDENWALD STAFF?
Our welcoming committee contacts new residents after they’ve settled into their new apartment homes. These volunteers will introduce you to other residents, often by arranging a time to share a meal. Staff members will also stop by to introduce themselves and help you learn more about their jobs and departments.
DOES EDENWALD HAVE A RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION?
Yes. Our residents’ association fosters programs to enhance our outstanding care and services. We believe resident involvement is essential for nurturing a strong working partnership among residents, administrative staff and the Edenwald Board of Directors.
Residents elect four officers: president, vice president, treasurer and secretary. Meetings are held monthly, and the association president attends meetings of our board of directors.
DOES EDENWALD OFFER ASSISTANCE WITH MY NEW HOME’S FURNITURE ARRANGEMENT?
Yes. Your apartment is your home, and you deserve to feel comfortable. Before you move in, we offer a complimentary consultation with a senior move manager, who will help you decide which furniture is best suited for your new home.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE A COMMUNITY LIKE EDENWALD, WHICH OFFERS THE OPTION OF FUTURE HEALTHCARE?
It’s important to choose a community that provides additional healthcare services — such as assisted living, comprehensive nursing care or memory care — because it provides you peace of mind for the future. Should you ever need extra support, you won’t have to leave your community and move elsewhere. At Edenwald, we offer you the security of future care through two different contract choices. There are pros and cons to these two different types of contracts, called Lifecare (Type A) and fee-for-service (Type C).
If you opt for a Lifecare (or Type A) contract, you’ll pay one all-inclusive entrance fee and enjoy unlimited care — including assisted living, comprehensive nursing care and memory care — at little or no increase in your monthly fee. With a fee-for-service (Type C) contract, you’ll pay a lower entrance and monthly fee and receive the same services that you would with Lifecare — you’ll just pay for all of your services individually at market rates. Learn more about your contract options here.
CAN OUR FAMILY, GROUP OR BUSINESS HOST A MEETING, PARTY OR OTHER SPECIAL EVENT ON EDENWALD’S CAMPUS?
Yes. From retirement parties and rehearsal dinners to board meetings and holiday parties, Edenwald offers several rooms that can accommodate a range of events. Use your own caterer or take advantage of catering by Edenwald’s renowned dining services. Find details here.
ARE EDENWALD EVENTS OPEN TO FUTURE RESIDENTS AND GUESTS?
Yes. We encourage you to join us for our exciting entertainment and educational events — at no cost. Attendance is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and current residents and waitlist members receive priority seating.
