Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from those interested in Assisted Living at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village. Read on to find out more — if there’s a question we haven’t answered here, contact us today.

  • When is the right time to move into an Assisted Living community?

    When seniors reach the point where they need a little extra help with daily tasks, they sometimes wonder if they are ready for an Assisted Living community. Perhaps, the concern is costs, or the hassle of moving, or perhaps they associate Assisted Living with nursing homes. We know it can be a difficult, deeply personal decision, but we will say that an Assisted Living community is far from a nursing home. Our seniors maintain active social lives, and they set their own daily schedules. They live in private apartments but enjoy having a maintenance-free community and the little bit of extra help that comes with Assisted Living. We are here to support you while you live the way you want to live.

  • What are my Assisted Living options?

    We offer beautiful one- and two-bedroom apartments.

  • Do you have a wait list?

    At times, yes. To get on the wait list, you must submit a long-term application for residency.

  • Do you have additional storage?

    We do offer small storage areas, or we can direct you to convenient storage units nearby. In addition, we can provide expert assistance in rightsizing. A move of this kind usually requires anticipating future needs and making some tough decisions about furnishings and possessions. We can help you in planning. We will work with you personally to ensure the choices you make are right for you and consistent with the way you want live.

  • How do your fees work?

    Monthly Assisted Living fees begin at $2,718, based on floor plan and level of services needed. A second-person fee applies for double occupancy, and it varies based on level of services needed. Contact us to learn more and take the next step in your journey.

  • Do I have to disclose all of my finances?

    No. We need to see enough that we feel confident you can afford private pay senior living for the foreseeable future, but this does not require full disclosure of your finances.

  • Do you take Medicaid?

    Medicaid does not apply to Assisted Living.

  • What types of security do you offer?

    A team member is onsite 24/7. We have a wandering alarm system for residents who need extra security.

  • Do you offer a meal plan?

    Dining is an important component of our culture at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village. We offer meals for lunch and dinner so you can choose what you’d like to eat. Select the meal plan to suit your needs. While one meal is included in your monthly fee, we can assist with up to three meals a day.

  • What are my transportation options?

    If you have been driving before you move into Fort Scott Presbyterian Village, you may continue to drive as long as it is safe for you to do so. We also provide scheduled transportation and by appointment, as needed.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Yes, we allow pets in Assisted Living. Residents may have a dog, cat, birds, and/or fish.

  • What types of assistance do you provide?

    We are here to help with most aspects of daily life. We can assist with needs and change your plan if needed in the future.

  • Are there activities to participate in?
