How do I reserve an apartment home?

You may apply to become a resident by selecting an apartment home that best fits your lifestyle and is in line with your financial resources. You secure your reservation with a fully refundable deposit and an application for review by our Executive Director.

How do I get started in the process from a home to a senior community?

Starting the conversation or process to move to a senior living community can be difficult. If you are feeling nervous, uncomfortable or overwhelmed, the following tips can make the conversation a little easier.

  • Be prepared. Do your research about senior living, assisted living and independent living options.
  • Ask for support. Invite family or friends to talk openly about options and experiences. Make sure your family members feel their concerns are heard, but also express your honest goals in regards to support and freedom.
  • Ask for recommendations. Ask trusted people for recommendations, such as a family physician, clergy members or family friends.
  • Visit. Do not expect to reach a decision instantly. Many people explore the idea of moving to an independent senior community for 2+ years, but don’t wait too long to enjoy the freedom and experience of Independent Living.

Will I have a voice in the community?

Yes! We encourage residents to participate in our community resident committees — special committees focused on different aspects of community life. Residents can choose to actively participate in decisions regarding social programming, activities, outings and more.

What happens after you approve my application?

Upon acceptance of your application, you simply sign the residency agreement, which outlines the details of your living arrangements. Then, you work closely with our Move-In Assistant throughout the process to ensure a smooth transition to your new home…and finally, move in.

What about health insurance?

Lexington Square requires you to maintain Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B and one supplemental health insurance policy or equivalent insurance coverage. In some cases, your personal long-term care insurance policy may also offset those monthly costs.

Do I have to participate in events and activities?

Nope. You can live the way you want, as every activity and social event is optional. We hope you do join us, but we respect that you will live your way.

How does Lexington Health Network fit into the care continuum?

As a resident, you have priority access to all levels of care services within the Squares and are eligible for a health care benefit and guaranteed priority admission to Lexington Healthcare Centers for skilled nursing and rehabilitation services.

What levels of service does Lexington Square offer?

Personal Care– Personal care is available if you require some assistance in your apartment home, such as medication reminders, escort services and other support related to daily living. Generally used on a temporary basis to provide additional support after a hospitalization, or rehabilitation stay.

Special help is also accessible if you are not feeling well or are recuperating from an illness. When Personal Care is not enough, we have dedicated assisted living floors for residents who require more comprehensive assistance and more support with daily living activities.

The Commons – Where care is anything but common – Licensed Assisted Living
We provide a specialized dedicated staff on a licensed floor that provides customized assistance with daily living while fostering independence in your own private apartment.

Memory Care – Licensed and Secured (at Lombard)
Our Memory Care Program is a highly specialized dimension of care exclusively for residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of memory impairment. These services are available on a licensed and secure floor with trained dedicated staff.

Respite in Assisted Living or Memory Care
The Respite Program at Lexington Square is a short-term living arrangement. Your loved one stays in our furnished apartment home, and we step in as caregivers so you have a well-deserved and necessary break.
