Our Philosophy

The Joy of Aging

Freedom of Choice

Some see aging as a time of limitations. We choose to view it as a time of new freedoms. The freedom to spend your days on the things that mean the most to you. The freedom to nurture relationships, old and new, with family and friends. Freedom from burdensome chores and concerns. At Cherrywood Pointe we respect your right to choose how you will live. Everything from what floorplan you choose, to what services you want or need, to how you’ll spend your day. We strive to create an environment where you can discover new joys in life.

Peace of Mind

Live each day to the fullest without fear of the future. At Cherrywood Pointe you’re set for many years to come. If your health or abilities should change over the years, we can continue to provide you with compassionate service, care and support right in your apartment. You need not worry about enduring a disruptive move to an unfamiliar place. You and your family can rest assured that you are in good hands, surrounded by those who love and respect you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a person get into a Cherrywood Pointe?

Come see us or give us a call! Talk with our Outreach & Sales Director to see which 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 a refundable wait list deposit and 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 people may have long term care insurance. Your long term care insurance plan 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 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.
