Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from those interested in our assisted living neighborhood. Read on to find out more about Newton Presbyterian Manor. If there’s a question we haven’t answered here, contact us today.

  • When is the right time to move into an Assisted Living community?

    When seniors reach the point where they need a little extra help with daily tasks, they sometimes wonder if they are ready for an assisted living community. Perhaps, the concern is costs, or the hassle of moving, or perhaps they associate assisted living with nursing homes. We know it can be a difficult, deeply personal decision, but we will say that an assisted living community is far from a nursing home. Our seniors maintain active social lives, and they set their own daily schedules. They live in private apartments but enjoy having a maintenance-free community and the little bit of extra help that comes with assisted living. We are here to support you while you live the way you want to live.

  • What is the difference between Assisted Living and Long-Term Care?

    Most families start thinking about full health care services when their loved one needs assistance with mobility, with getting up in the morning or getting to bed at night, or with their care in the bathroom. Our team will work with the primary care doctor and with family to make sure that the need for a move is not a surprise to anyone and that all are prepared for the next step. That’s the benefit of living in a Life Plan Community—the need for more help doesn’t require a move beyond our campus. Friends and even caregivers are familiar!

  • What are my Assisted Living options?

    We offer beautiful studios and suites.

  • Do you have additional storage?

    We can direct you to convenient storage units nearby. In addition, we can provide expert assistance in rightsizing. A move of this kind usually requires anticipating future needs and making some tough decisions about furnishings and possessions. We can help you in planning. We will work with you personally to ensure the choices you make are right for you and consistent with the way you want to live.

  • How do your fees work?

    Monthly assisted living fees begin at $3,430, based on floor plan and level of services needed. A second-person fee applies for double occupancy, and it varies based on level of services needed. Contact us to learn more and take the next step in your journey.

  • Do you take Medicaid?

    Medicaid does not apply to assisted living. 

  • What types of security do you offer?

    We offer a secure facility staffed 24/7. Cameras around campus provide added security.

  • Do you offer a meal plan?

    Newton Presbyterian Manor's philosophy of resident-centered senior living allows flexibility in food choices made by the residents. Your monthly assisted living fee includes three meals a day. Meals are served buffet style with many options to choose from at each meal in the dining rooms, and a salad bar is offered at the noon and evening meals. Dessert options abound, including always-available soft-serve ice cream. There’s always fruit and a variety of snacks available as well as a coffee bar with hot chocolate and cappuccino.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Yes, we allow pets in assisted living. Dogs, cats, birds, and fish are allowed upon approval.

  • What are my transportation options?

    If you have been driving before you move into Newton Presbyterian Manor, you may continue to drive. We also provide scheduled transportation for medical appointments, community and cultural outings, and more.
