Frequently Asked Questions

How does a person get in to a Cherrywood Pointe?

Come see us! Talk with our Outreach & Sales Director to see what apartments may be available. If you see something you like, you can reserve that apartment by putting down the Community Fee, and you can work together with the Outreach & Sales Director on the next steps in the move-in process. If the apartment of your choice is not available, you can put down the refundable wait list deposit to be added to our wait list for that specific unit. We encourage you to come and visit before you need senior living, especially if you feel there is a specific type of apartment floorplan or view that you will want. The sooner you get on the wait list the more opportunity you will have when the time comes for you to move.

Do you buy or rent apartments at Cherrywood Pointe?

Cherrywood Pointe is a senior living rental community. Our leases are month-to-month, so there are no long term commitments. Although, we know once you move and get settled in to our community, you won’t want to leave!

Does Medicare or Health Insurance pay for Senior Living?

No. However, your health insurance may help to pay for some of the services you receive while living in our community. For example, if you decide to be seen by our visiting Fairview Geriatric Physicians, or if you’ve been prescribed physical therapy, or have been admitted to Hospice – those services can most likely be billed to your health insurance. Some may have long term care insurance. Depending on your LTC insurance plan, that may help to reimburse you for some of the day-to-day expenses for assisted living.

Do I need a doctor’s order to live here?

If you are choosing the Senior Living service package, you do not need a doctor’s order to move-in. If you decide to sign up with our Assisted Living, Memory Care or Enhanced Care service options, you may become a client of our Ebenezer Home Care. To become a client of our Ebenezer Home Care, our Director of Health Services will schedule an assessment with you and will need written doctor’s orders, especially if our care team will be helping you with your medications.

Am I required to see the Fairview Providers if I live at Cherrywood Pointe?

No. You can choose to work with other providers that can come in to our community. Or you can continue to go out to doctors’ appointments, like when you lived in your home. However, our teams from Fairview are in each community often, so it can be very convenient for you and your family to take advantage of these regularly visiting teams.

What other types of services do you offer at Cherrywood Pointe?

In addition to Fairview Geriatric Physicians and Fairview Home Care and Hospice, we also have On-Site Care visit our community on a regular basis – they provide Audiology, Vision, and Podiatry services. If you wish to be seen by any of these providers, you can talk with your Concierge to get the enrollment paperwork.

Is Ebenezer affiliated with a specific religion or church?

Ebenezer was founded in 1917 by Lutheran ministers to care for the elderly. Today, we care for and house older adults of all faiths. You do not need to be any specific religion to live in our communities.  Ebenezer does offer Spiritual Health services, with chaplains visiting many of our communities to provide services like devotionals, prayer groups, support groups, grief support and one-on-one visits for those who want them.
