Do I have to already live at Seabrook to come to the continuing care neighborhood?
A: Not at all. We accept all people 62-plus in our continuing care neighborhood, even if you don't live at Seabrook.
What's a continuing care retirement community? Why does it matter?
A: Seabrook is a continuing care retirement community, which means we offer several levels of care on-site including Assisted Living. Even if you never require more advanced care (most Seabrook residents don't), it's a comfort to know it's available.
What's the difference between independent living and continuing care?
A: With independent living, you'll continue to enjoy the active life you're used to—just without the hassle of maintenance. As a continuing care retirement community or CCRC, we also offer a neighborhood for more advanced support should you ever need it. This neighborhood offers assisted living, short-term rehab, respite care and long-term care.
Who decides what type of care I need?
A: Our full-time doctors, nurse practitioners and social workers will complete an assessment to determine what level of care would most benefit you or your loved one.
How much does Seabrook continuing care cost?
A: Residents of our continuing care neighborhood pay a one-time Refundable Entrance Fee.* After that, pricing is structured according to the level of care you require. Some services, such as rehab, are covered by Medicare. For details, see our pricing page.
Is Seabrook Medicare-approved?
A: Yes, we are approved by Medicare.
Do you accept Medicaid?
A: People who require Medicaid have typically exhausted their funds and will not have the entrance fee necessary to move here.
