What is Personal Care?

Personal Care provides help with daily living activities such as medication administration, bathing, and dressing. Bridlewood Personal Care provides support to residents who need assistance with day-to-day activities so they may live as independently as possible in spacious, private accommodations. Residents enjoy all the services and amenities of White Horse Village and are encouraged to take an active role in their daily care.

What is Memory Care?

Memory Care at White Horse Village is also personal care with additional programming and support services for residents with changing cognition. The Four Seasons Memory Care unit consists of 20 private suites designed with safety features that assist residents who need additional support by living in a secured area. Individuals with cognitive changes will benefit from the structured programming available in this environment. Our life enrichment and nursing teams strive to maximize each resident’s independence and to provide person-centered care in a therapeutic setting.

What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)?

A Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), also known as a Life Plan Community, offers a full continuum of support services including residential (independent) living, assisted living or personal care, and short-term and long-term nursing care on one campus. Continuing care communities provide opportunities for residents to add support and healthcare services as needed.

Is White Horse Village a CCRC?

Yes, White Horse Village is a continuing care retirement community offering a wide range of residential (independent) living options and a full range of healthcare services. However, life at White Horse Village goes beyond labels. Our community offers abundant amenities, state-of-the-art facilities, exceptional dining experiences, and highly-trained staff. White Horse Village is leading the way in active senior living.

Do CCRCs offer different types of residency agreements?  

Yes, two common types are Lifecare and Fee-for-Service. At a Fee-for-Service CCRC, residents have the full continuum of healthcare services but costs increase as the resident moves to either personal care or nursing care. At a Lifecare CCRC, residents pay a slightly larger monthly fee in residential (independent) living, but if residents move to either personal care or nursing care, the costs remain the same (except for annual increases) and don’t escalate like they do in a Fee-for-Service community.
