FAQs

What does continuing care mean?

Our continuing care retirement communities are designed to meet the changing lifestyle, health and service needs of residents. Residential living, assisted living and skilled nursing care are offered on one campus. At some communities, memory support is also provided.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is for residents who need more help with the activities of daily living but do not require nursing care. Friendly, trained staff members are available 24 hours a day to help with meals, dressing, personal hygiene and medications.

Isn’t continuing care expensive?

It’s really a matter of values. If security and stability are important to you, then your investment will prove to be extremely efficient. When you consider that continuing care may offer you the ability to enjoy a more active retirement than if you lived alone, and that your changing needs can be met through assisted living and nursing care, continuing care can be a prudent use of your income and assets.

What is affordable housing?

Affordable housing programs vary but the term typically refers to government-subsidized housing where the resident pays no more than 30 percent of his or her income toward rent. To qualify for a subsidy, an applicant should make no more than 50 to 80 percent of an area’s median income.

Do I have to be Baptist to live in an ABHOW community?

Absolutely not. All ABHOW communities are non-sectarian and non-discriminatory, and are enjoyed by all individuals regardless of faith or personal convictions.
