We currently have a short waitlist for Assisted Living units.
Assisted living is a way to provide care to people who are having difficulty living independently. Assisted Living providers furnish a place to live, meals, and assistance with daily activities such as dressing, bathing, eating, and managing medications. Assisted living programs also tend to have a less institutional look than nursing homes. However, these facilities are not as highly regulated by the State as nursing homes. There are a wide variety of assisted living programs in Maryland. They range from large, corporate managed facilities where hundreds of people live in their own apartment to small, private homes.
Assisted living programs may differ in many ways including, but not limited to size, staff qualifications, services offered, location, fees, sponsorship, whether they are freestanding or part of a continuum of care, participation in the Medicaid Waiver, ability to age in place, and visiting hours. Therefore, consumers should try to have a general idea of what type of setting, services, and price range they may want before contacting an assisted living program, as well as having questions prepared to ask the program manager or administrator. Consumers may find the Maryland Department of Aging publication entitled, “Assisted Living in Maryland: What You Need to Know,” helpful when they are contemplating assisted living. The publication may be downloaded from the Department of Aging Web site. http://www.mdoa.state.md.us/documents/ALGuide_002.pdf
In addition, the Office of Health Care Quality (OHCQ) encourages consumers to verify the licensure status of any assisted living program that they are considering. A list of licensed assisted living programs is available online. http://mhcc.maryland.gov/consumerinfo/longtermcare/AssistedLiving.aspx Cedar Lane is a licensed Assisted Living facility # 18 AL 007.
Cedar Care Assisted Living Program
The first step toward Assisted Living at Cedar Lane Apartments is to submit an application. If a unit is available at the time of application, the applicant will be processed accordingly. If there are no available units, the appicant's name will be added to a waitlist. Once an Assisted Living Apartment is available and the applicant’s name is at the top of the list, they or the appropriate family member will be called to accept or decline the unit. If accepted, the Support Services departent will start the assessment process to determine the level of care for the applicant.
Costs for Assisted Living Care are listed below and are in addition to rent. Assisted Living is private pay - Medicare/Medicaid are not accepted. Rent subsidies may or may not be available at the time the applicant takes possession of the apartment. Please inquire at the time you apply and understand that if a subsidy for the rent portion is available, qualification is based on income, assets and out-of-pocket medical expenses.
• Level 1 Care is $2,720 per month plus rent
• Level 2 Care is $3,135 per month plus rent
• Level 3 Care is $3,710 per month plus rent
(rates are as of 10/1/12)
Market rate rent on a studio or personal care unit is $911 per month which includes utilities except phone and cable. The applicant must qualify for subsidy to rent a one bedroom assisted living apartment.

** Please note that when applying for Assisted Living both the Assisted Living and Apartment Application must be completed.**
Applications must be signed by the applicant or by someone with Power of Attorney for the applicant and a copy of the Power of Attorney must accompany the application when submitted.
Once an apartment is offered and accepted, the Health Care Practitioner Physical Assessment Form must be completed by the applicant's primary care or attending physician. This form is valid for 30 days only and therefore should not be completed until the applicant has a tentative move-in date scheduled. Once this form is complete and submitted to our Support Services Department, our delegating nurse will make arrangements with the applicant and their family to perform an assessment to determine the applicant's level of care. Again, this is time-sensitive and must be done within 30 days of the applicant moving into Cedar Lane in order to be valid. If you would like to view the assessment and scoring tool used by our delegating nurse in determining an applicant's level of care, please click on the item. Click here for our Uniform Disclosure Statement.
The Resident Profile and Emergency Contact Data Sheet should also be completed and submitted to the Support Services Department prior to the resident arriving.
