I am visiting Barclay Friends soon, where should I park?
There is ample onsite parking, including a number of handicap spaces close to the main entrance of the building.
What happens if Mom or Dad’s money runs out?
Barclay Friends is Medicaid certified. We have never asked a resident to leave because his or her money ran out.
Do all residents get physical therapy?
The Recreation Department at Barclay Friends provides residents with a daily exercise program that is built into each resident’s care plan. Physical therapy is joint-specific and is requested by an orthopedic doctor.
Can I bring my own furniture and belongings?
Yes, we encourage you to bring your own furniture and belongings to make your residence, your new home. Since personal belongings are not covered by Barclay Friend’s insurance policy, renter’s insurance is highly recommended.
What is the difference between Assisted Living and Personal Care?
This is a common point of confusion in our industry. We detailed the differences between the two living options in our blog. Barclay Friends now offers Personal Care.
Is there an Entrance Fee required?
For personal care and memory care, there is only a community fee of $3,500. For residential living, there is an entrance fee ranging from $50,000 to $75,000, which provides a discount if Personal Care, Memory Care or Nursing Care is required.
Are pets allowed? Can outside pets visit?
Residents are permitted to have a pet under 30 pounds live with them, with the approval of the Administrator for Preston. All pets will need to have a current rabies certificate (if applicable) and other documentation.
Can I get a newspaper delivered to my door?
Yes, our staff will deliver your newspaper to your door.
