Assisted Living

Tailored to You Right Here in Fremont.

That Extra Touch of Personal Care.

Tailored. Professional. Discreet.

The Heritage at Shalimar Gardens’ Assisted Living community provides Nebraskans with discreet care services while they continue to enjoy the comforts of their own apartments and the company of others.

We tailor our care and attention to your physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs. Our number one goal is to help you remain independent for as long as possible.

We start by designing a personalized Wellness and Care Plan including you and your loved ones in the process. Your Wellness and Care Plan reassures you that your needs will be met, from bathing to dressing, medication management, gentle reminders, and more. It also creates comforting communication between you and your caregivers. You’re both on the same page and have the same goals, so you’ll worry less about getting through your day.

Frequently Asked Questions About Assisted Living

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living refers to senior living facilities that provide not only housing (homes, apartments, condos) but that also provide licensed and regulated care and assistance with what are called Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). Assisted living communities also routinely provide access to medical care when needed. Assisted living communities can exist as freestanding (only offering assisted living), or assisted living can be offered as one option in a full-service senior living community that offers additional residential-with-care options, including Independent Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing.

What are the 6 ADLs?

Bathing. The ability to clean oneself and perform grooming activities like shaving and brushing teeth.

Dressing & Grooming. The ability to get dressed by oneself without struggling with buttons and zippers. The ability to wash one’s hands and face, apply makeup, brush one’s hair, and put on jewelry. 

Eating. The ability to feed oneself.

Transferring. The ability to move from one activity to another, as well as to move from one’s chair to one’s bed or to and from a toilet or shower. 

Toileting. The ability to get on and off the toilet and clean oneself appropriately.

Continence. The ability to control one’s bladder and bowel functions.

How does one pay for Assisted Living?

Most families use private funds to pay for assisted living. This means a combination of personal savings, pension payments and retirement accounts

Though many seniors save for retirement over the years, family members often contribute to senior care costs. 

The national median cost of assisted living is $4,300 a month, according to Genworth’s 2020 Cost of Care Survey. Many families are surprised and disappointed to learn that assisted living is not covered by Medicare. However, Medicare may cover some of the health care your loved one receives in an assisted living community. For example, if your relative needs assistance administering insulin, Medicare may allow them to claim the injection fees.

Long-term care insurance (LTCI) generally goes into effect when a senior can no longer perform two Activities of Daily Living. Seniors must register and pay for a policy before age 80. Long-term care insurance does not normally fully cover 100% of assisted living services, but it provides more benefits than most policies.
