Let Us Assist You
as possible, so you feel supported,
informed and at ease.
We understand there are many things to think about when planning your move.
Below please find answers to some common questions.
What other types of assistance may residents receive?
In addition to our full range of services, including fine dining, 24/7 recreation and 24/7 Nursing. Northshore Heights Nurses assist with individual residents needs such as oxygen management, nebulizer treatments, and insulin injections. Specialized diet options are available along with exercise classes several days a week. Aides provide personal care such as bathing and dressing.
Is Northshore Heights licensed by Tennessee?
Yes, our residence is licensed and inspected by the Tennessee Department of Health. Department of Health regulated Assisted Living residences provide assistance with all activities of daily living, including: three meals per day; personal care services such as bathing, dressing, and grooming; medication management; recreational programming; transportation to appointments; 24-hour supervision for any emergencies or care needs. Although not required by the Department of Health, Northshore Heights has Licensed Professional Nurses on-site 24/7.
Can my loved one continue to see their own doctor?
Yes, residents have the choice of keeping their personal physician or being referred to the in- house or local physician.
Can we bring our own furniture?
Yes, our rooms are fully-furnished; however, we encourage residents to bring their own furniture and favorite belongings.
What are the visiting hours?
You can visit your loved one at any time. If you’d like to visit between 9pm and 6am, while our doors are locked for the safety of our residents, simply call ahead and our staff will meet you upon arrival.
Can I take my loved one out of the building?
Yes. Trips off-site with family members are encouraged. We simply ask that you check with your Nurses Station and take all appropriate medication with you for the length of time your loved one will be gone. Residents and guests are required to sign in and out at the reception desk.
Will my loved one lose his/her independence?
On the contrary – we recognize that each of our residents have individual needs. At Northshore Heights we promote resident independence and provide an environment that encourages this to the level of each individual resident.
Should I expect a large Entrance Fee?
Our communities do not require a large “buy in” option. The entrance fee is a one-time fee due at admission, compared to larger CCRC’s, this entrance fee is minimal. Our assistance provides a seamless move in process where the SMDR and/or Case Manager work alongside the responsible parties to obtain the required documentation needed for an admission.
