If you’re looking for an Assisted Living lifestyle, Alpine Meadows may be the place for you. We offer a secure and caring environment for our seniors, and Alpine Retreat, is a short-term stay for trial periods, vacation or hospital recovery. Come visit our community, and become part of our family.

Q: Is there an emergency call system?
A: All Alpine Meadows apartments are equipped with emergency call systems.

Q: What options are there for activities?

Our activities program, Living Your Best Life, is based on an extensive review of residents’ hobbies and interests. Every activity is designed to touch on at least one of the eight specific components to keep your mind, body, and soul active. Your Activities Director will spend time getting to know each senior and exploring their interests. We’re certain you will find something that’s right for you among exercise classes, arts and crafts, book discussions, bingo, card games, Wii tournaments, outings, and much more. We want our residents to say that since they moved to Alpine Meadows they are busier than ever!

Q: How much does it cost to live at Alpine Meadows?
A: At Alpine Meadows, residents find more than a home---they find a vibrant and loving community and a second family. Because care is tailored to individual needs, residents pay only for the services they require (in addition to the basic room rent rates). Each resident’s rate is determined by a thorough assessment by the assessment team, which consists of the Care Supervisor, Licensed Nurse, and the Administrator. We use a point-value system based on the amount of time and level of assistance a resident may require. The rate can be adjusted as a resident’s needs change. This way, each resident receives just the right amount of assistance he or she needs to live with independence and dignity. And behind the scenes, there is a well-run business in place that is dedicated to delivering the quality of care and services residents enjoy that’s worth the price they pay.
