RESIDENT PORTAL

Faq’s

Residents in The Arbor receive personalized, compassionate assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care centered on their specific needs and desires that is designed to enhance their quality of life. Schedules and services are tailored to match each individual whenever possible. A team of dedicated nursing and therapy professionals provide services to ensure each resident is given an opportunity to function at his or her highest level.  A certified recreational therapist guides residents in leisure activities seven days a week to promote a sense of well-being.  Every Arbor resident enjoys a private room with a private bathroom.  All the skilled nursing accommodations are Medicare-certified, enabling residents to use their Medicare benefit.

Each residence includes a fully equipped kitchen with appliances including oven/range top, microwave, frost-free refrigerator and freezer, and garbage disposal.

Some apartments and villas have patios or screened-in porches.  All villas have a one- or two-car garage.

Your pet is welcome if approved by the staff.  Typically, small dogs, cats, pet fish, etc., are allowed.

Many expenses you now pay in your own home, such as property taxes, insurance and maintenance are included in your monthly service fee.  Other services include a flexible meal plan, utilities (except telephone and premium cable), regular housekeeping, complimentary local transportation, lifestyle programs and activities, wellness center, security services, and grounds maintenance, all in addition to assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing care, if it is ever needed.  In addition, membership to the Duke Center for Living Health & Fitness Center also is included.

No. Galloway Ridge is a Life Care retirement community and therefore, you do not need long-term care insurance.  The Life Care program at Galloway Ridge helps you manage the high cost of long-term care without the need for costly insurance plans. The Life Care program covers the cost of long-term assisted living, Alzheimer’s, Dementia or memory care and skilled nursing care that would otherwise be covered by long-term care insurance or by private pay. Should you already have long-term care insurance, it is suggested that you, in conjunction with your insurance provider, decide if keeping it as a supplemental plan or cancelling it makes the most sense for you and your unique situation.

To become a resident of Galloway Ridge, you pay a one-time entrance fee based upon the size and location of your chosen residence, as well as your choice of entrance fee refundability.  The entrance fee funds the cost of the community and The Arbor Health Care Center and entitles you to reside in the apartment or villa of your choice for as long as you are an independent resident of Galloway Ridge community.

Galloway Ridge is not a real estate transaction.  Residency is established by the payment of an entrance fee and services and amenities are paid for with a monthly service fee.

Galloway Ridge provides a unique opportunity for you to enjoy a retirement lifestyle with peace of mind for the future while enjoying your life as it is today.  You will have the privacy of your own beautiful residence without the burden of home maintenance.  Numerous social, recreational, educational, cultural and spiritual opportunities are available, and of course you have the freedom to live life as you choose.  The best time to move to a CCRC is when you are well and living independently.

Life Care is the most extensive and comprehensive type of contract provided in a CCRC.  The Life Care contract guarantees you priority access to the provision of assisted living, memory care or skilled nursing care, if ever needed.  The services are provided for as long as needed at a minimum additional meal cost to what you would pay to live at Galloway Ridge.

A continuing care retirement community provides a continuum of lifestyle options—residences, services, amenities and short- or long-term care all on one campus.  This full-service environment is centered on active, independent living, yet provides access to built-in support programs including short- or long-term care, if ever needed.  The wide variety of educational, social, recreational and cultural activities, combined with services  in a neighborhood setting, has resulted in residents of Life Plan communities living, on average, longer, healthier and less stressful lives than their peers.

Galloway Ridge at Fearrington is a Life Plan Community with a Life Care program.
