Who is a good fit for personal care in Pennsylvania?

This assisted living lifestyle is a great option for seniors who need extra support or who need assistance with day-to-day tasks. Every senior is different and each situation is unique. However, there are a few signs that personal care could be the best (and healthiest) next decision for you or your loved one.

Regularly feeling unstable or experiencing a recent fall, chronic pain or other conditions that are becoming harder to manage, feelings of loneliness or isolation—especially when you still want to be social: these are all characteristics of someone who would benefit from a move into an assisted living community. If you’re trying to determine if the time is right, give us a call; our team is here to help.

What is the difference between personal care and memory care at Arbor Terrace Exton?

Both memory care and personal care offer supportive care to people with a range of health issues, including cognitive impairments. Memory care, however, caters specifically to those with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia through dementia-friendly activities and staff trained in the psychological and physical effects of cognitive impairments. To understand the key differences, you may find this article from The Arbor Company Blog helpful.

If you have questions about these different types of senior living at Arbor Terrace Exton, or would like help determining which might be the best fit for you or your loved one, please contact us. We’re happy to help!

Are personal care apartments furnished at Arbor Terrace Exton?

Aside from kitchenette appliances, the personal care apartments at Arbor Terrace Exton do not come furnished. Our senior living community is designed to be reminiscent of home, and we encourage residents to bring their own belongings, including a bed and smaller pieces of furniture. For more information on what to bring—and what not to bring—when moving in, read this article from The Arbor Company Blog!

Are personal care expenses tax deductible?

In most cases, only the medical costs of a personal care community are deductible. Living costs like room and board are not. However, there are exceptions if the resident is in the personal care facility primarily for medical care, in which case, part or all of personal costs may qualify for the medical expense tax deduction. We recommend consulting a tax advisor with questions regarding your specific circumstances.

What’s the difference between Arbor Terrace Exton and a nursing home in Exton, PA?

Our community was designed to be reminiscent of home, offering private apartments and independence for our residents. In fact, some personal care residents drive their own cars, cook some of their own meals, and come and go as they please. The assisted living lifestyle at Arbor Terrace Exton includes dining, housekeeping, laundry, maintenance, and all of the other world-class amenities that Arbor is known for. Our staff is available 24 hours a day to provide help, if and when it’s needed. Personal care is a great option for seniors who need extra support or who need assistance with day-to-day tasks. 

By contrast, a nursing home (also known as a skilled nursing facility) offers more comprehensive support to those who have extensive medical needs in more of a clinical environment. They provide the highest level of care possible outside of a hospital, delivering 24-hour care to seniors who have complex medical conditions and need hands-on assistance and monitoring. Skilled nursing facilities are the best choice for those who need assistance with tasks that go beyond the activities of daily living.
