FAQs
  • How does the 90% re-occupancy work?
  • The Covington will return 90% of your entrance fee to you or to your estate when you leave once your residence is reoccupied. This benefit is guaranteed for the length of your stay at the Covington. If you leave within the first 90 days of occupancy, 100% of your entrance fee will be returned.

  • Why should my parents move to a senior living community now?
  • The best time to move is while they’re active, healthy and able to enjoy everything we have to offer. People who wait until they’re facing a health problem have fewer options. They’re forced to make a decision in a time of stress. If you want your parents to enjoy a truly carefree retirement, don’t postpone it.

  • What is a Life Plan community?
  • A Life Plan community—of which The Covington is a perfect example—offers a maintenance-free lifestyle and independent residential living with the assurance that your parents will have access to on-site health care services as long as they are residents of the community. Life Plan communities offer Independent Living for residents who don’t need any (or much) daily assistance; Assisted Living or Memory Care for residents who require specialized support with the activities of daily living; and Skilled Nursing care and Rehabilitation in an on-campus Care Center for residents who require 24-hour short- or long-term health care. Life Plan communities offer asset protection, with a choice of contract types, including entrance fees that are 90% refundable to your family’s estate.

  • What happens if a resident runs out of money?
  • At The Covington, an Episcopal Communities & Services (ECS) nonprofit community, our residents benefit from the safety net of The Sophie Miller Foundation and its benevolent support in times of unforeseen hardship. If a resident should outlive his resources through no fault of his own and is unable to pay his monthly fee, he can remain in his residence and maintain access to our on-site health care, per his specific residential contract.

  • How can an adult child plan ahead for a parent's future memory-support needs?
  • Our professional team will work with your parent’s referring physician or geriatrician to determine what care is required. If your parent is still in the early stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia, but you suspect your parent may need memory care at some point, it is wise to choose a community that offers on-site skilled memory support so another move will not be necessary. The Covington is such a community, offering Memory Care as part of our complete continuum of care!
