F.A.Q.

  • What is the monthly cost at Bois D’Arc Senior Living?

    Let’s answer that question up front. Bois D’Arc’s fee is below the area’s average and runs approximately $3,100 per month. By personally visiting our facility, interacting with staff and residents, and speaking to family members of past and present residents, it will help guide your decision on the value (cost) of the excellent care your loved one will receive.

  • Most places seem to have additional, add-on costs.  Does Bois D’Arc?

    While many facilities do offer services on an ala carte basis, our monthly rent is all-inclusive. You won’t be charged extra for any of our services. In fact, we even encourage you to come share a meal with your loved one. It’s our treat and we would welcome the visit!

  • Okay, so what do you provide?

    Our services include all meals, management of medications, housekeeping and laundry, stand-by assistance with dressing and bathing, local transportation for doctors, appointments and shopping, all activities and outings, all utilities, basic cable and internet availability, as well as our round-the-clock care provided by our loving staff.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Pets are allowed on a case-by-case basis.

  • Are there religious services?

    We hold a non-denominational bible study led by a local clergy each week.

  • Will there be staff at night to help my loved one?

    Yes. We have dedicated caregivers onsite 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including all weekends and holidays.

  • I hear families talk about veteran’s benefits for assisted living. What is this?

    Veteran benefits refers to a federal program provided by the Department of Veteran Affairs known as Aid and Attendance. This tax-free benefit is available to wartime veterans, 65 years and older, and their surviving spouses. The benefit is designed to provide financial aid to help offset the cost of long-term care for those who need assistance with the daily activities of living such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring. As of December 2018 a single veteran who qualifies for A&A can receive up to $1,881 per month, a married vet can receive up to $2,230 per month, and a surviving spouse can receive up to $1,209 per month to pay for needed care at home, in an assisted living community or a nursing home. Our Facility Manager can help direct you to experts (we work with our Local Veteran’s Service Officer) that can help you apply for that program.

  • Do you accept Medicaid

    No, we are a private-pay facility.
