Frequently Asked Questions about Senior Living in Minneapolis
A: A resident who chooses the “independent living” package rents an apartment like they would in a regular apartment building. The benefit of living at The Pillars of Prospect Park as an independent resident is the opportunity to participate in activities and entertainment, the choice to eat chef-prepared meals onsite, and the choice to have housekeeping.
A resident who chooses the “assisted living package” gets the benefits of the “independent living” package, and then also receive three meals a day, weekly housekeeping, two loads of laundry each week, an emergency safety alert system, daily safety checks, and access to our 24/7 nursing team.
Q: Do you buy or rent apartments at The Pillars of Prospect Park?
A: The Pillars of Prospect Park is a senior living rental community. Our leases are month-to-month, so there are no long-term commitments. We also offer a Stay by the Day option for Assisted Living and Memory Care in Minneapolis, where guests can stay with us for 3 to 30 days.
Q: Does Medicare or Health Insurance pay for senior living?
A: No. However, your health insurance may help to pay for some of the services you receive while living in our community. For example, if you decide to be seen by our visiting Fairview Geriatric Physicians or if you’re receiving prescribed physical therapy or hospice services from our visiting providers, those services can most likely be billed to your health insurance. Some people may have Long Term Care Insurance. Depending on your LTC Insurance Plan, that may help to reimburse you for some of the cost of the services you receive in our assisted living or memory care communities.
