What distinguishes the Horizon House approach to Assisted Living? We are…
- Personalized and resident-focused: At Horizon House, residents (and their families) are encouraged, supported, and involved in making decisions about their health and well-being.
- Comfortable: Each resident has a private studio or one-bedroom apartment, with their own furnishings and belongings to make them feel at home. Most importantly, residents are able to live as independently as possible — to come and go, enjoy visitors, and choose from many opportunities to be active and involved.
- Relationship-driven: Residents become part of a neighborhood and are continually supported by licensed and certified staff, people they come to know and trust and who understand their needs and preferences. This continuity between residents and staff — and the personal relationships that are formed – help to create a sense of comfort and stability.
Reasons to move to our Assisted Living neighborhood:
- A need for ongoing assistance with self-care tasks, medication management, and monitoring of medical conditions, such as heart disease, Parkinson’s, or other chronic illnesses.
- A desire for socialization. Programs and events are offered seven days a week in Supported Living.
- A spouse or partner is no longer able to provide care.
- Private caregiver expenses have become unmanageable.
Reasons to consider a short-term respite stay:
- Preparation for a hospital procedure.
- An illness, a fall, or frailty indicates decreased comfort or an inability to feel safe at home.
- A spouse, partner, or family member has a planned vacation or emergency.
When our residents require hospitalization or short-term stays in a skilled nursing facility, it’s good to know that Horizon House maintains close relationships with nearby providers who serve our residents on a priority basis. Our licensed nursing staff stays in close contact with residents throughout their hospital or skilled nursing stays and upon their return.
A comprehensive monthly service fee, which is paid for privately and may be supplemented through long-term care insurance, includes an apartment fee, based on size and location, and a level of care fee. The amount of care and support a resident requires is assessed upon move-in, as well as periodically (and in the event of a significant healthcare change). A second person fee of $1,250 is applicable to all apartments.

|One Bedroom||$6,750 – $7,950||$2,350 – $11,500|
