What services do you offer in Assisted Living?

Some of our residents in Assisted Living simply require help managing medications, while others need various levels of care. We can assist our residents with their activities of daily living, such as showering, dressing, grooming and even escorts to dining and activities. Each resident has a personalized service plan that is updated regularly to meet changing needs.

How is my level of care determined?

Our Resident Services Director assesses each resident’s care needs to create a personalized service plan that determines their level of care. Assessments are done upon moving in and following a health event to ensure everyone receives as much or as little care as they need.

Are pets allowed?

Yes! Andara is an active and fun pet-friendly community. However, dogs must be approved by the Executive Director, who determines acceptable pet residency. For the safety and comfort of all residents and guests, residents are responsible for their pets at all times and must adhere to the community pet policy.

Is smoking allowed at Andara?

Andara is a smoke-free community.

What is included in the monthly rent at Andara?

Andara offers private-pay rental apartments. Terms are month-to-month, and no “buy-in” fee is required. Residents pay a monthly rental rate that includes dining, events, housekeeping and linen services, apartment and community maintenance, most utilities and scheduled transportation. For residents in Assisted Living, there is an additional monthly charge for care services, based on the nature of the services and the time required to perform them.

What are your visiting hours?

Andara is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and as a residential community, there are no scheduled visiting hours. Visitors and families are welcome to come and go as they please. However, to ensure the safety of our community, all visitors, including vendors, are required to sign in at the front desk.
