I wasn't too happy with Allegria at the Oaks. They didn't know I was coming and they didn't have the appointment ready. I didn't think they had much to offer, it's a little small, and didn't seem to have a lot of activities. I got to peek into somebody's room, I couldn't go in but I saw that it's just a small room or a hospital room.

Brookdale Northampton is a little more expensive. I'm a 100% Irish, and they even have an auditorium where Irish dancers would come in. If I had my choice and my mother had more money, we would be there. It's a beautiful place. The staff knew everything about my mother. We were talking on the phone months prior, and she remembered everything. The staff was excellent, the tour was excellent, it was THE place. The rooms there were very nice. If you want to have Thanksgiving dinner with your mother they have big private dining rooms for you to have and you just tell them when you would use them. At the end of the hallways, they had a kitchenette with dining room tables for people to share food if they want to cook for their relatives. They even have washers and dryers at the end of the hallways if you want to wash something for your loved one. It's really good. Depending on your budget, the rooms range from pretty large studios to just a room. It's a little more expensive than the other places but I wouldn't say it would break the rank. They have game rooms, people frequently come in entertaining, they have a beauty salon, and a library. You could also get a 1-bedroom suite or 2-bedroom suite if you want. They have rooms for every need, they have assisted living and dementia care when you need it, going up to full care. They don't offer meals there.

Brookdale Northampton was excellent. However, when I was there, there wasn't much going on. The rooms were very nice. The staff members were very nice too. They have a beauty salon and a seating area. The place was very clean.

My mom has moved into assisted living center at Allegria at the Oaks. I chose them because my mom's friend was there until he passed, and it seemed to be a decent place. My mom got to know the staff there, so when she was ailing, she chose to go there. There was some issue where clothes were disappearing. Somebody also took her iPhone charger. The staff seemed to be knowledgeable that this happened. They explained to my mom that they put her name on it and hide it. Then what they did was, they changed their laundry crew to an outside crew so they made a change to improve that. They promised that they would put her clothes away. Then, after I paid and left, my mom's things were left out for weeks. I called about it but they still hadn't put her things away like they said they would. If you are able to do lots of things yourself, Allegria at the Oaks is nice place. However, if you need any kind of special attention, it is not the place for you. Like if you come out of rehab and you have to go to the bathroom a few times during the night, you can't guarantee that you're going to be taken care of. They gave my mom a call button to help with that situation and that works for a day, but then any time after that, she would buzz me and then I had to call them. I actually had to talk with the nurse. It seemed that there is a disconnect between the management staff and the actual people who do the work. There are three different head nurses since my mom has been there for six months. The head nurse is not the problem at all; it is the actual workers. The management staff has every good intention, are responsive, communicative and great, but the actual worker bees are not good. They remodeled the place, but it only made it look pretty. It didn't functionally change anything for my mom. The activities are excellent though.

I am/was a resident of this facility

We moved into The Birches at Newtown and it's OK. I did a lot of physical therapy in the beginning and then as I started to feel a little better, I went to regular sit and fit regulations. They have entertainment occasionally, which I like, since it's nice to see different people with their talents. Gradually I'm getting to do some more things that are going on. My husband is getting more active as well and getting quite a bit of physical therapy for his legs and back, so he's kept busy with that. He likes the entertainment too. He's made a big improvement. The staff is friendly and very good at knowing how to meet new people and how to adjust to each person's personality. We like meeting the new people in the dining room and now we've established some friends.

Twining Village was an excellent community, and the help was all top-notch. They have just about everything, they have a swimming pool, and their dining facilities are beautiful and excellent. They also have memory care aside from assisted living. The only thing I didn't like about them is that their assisted living apartments were very small; although it might be adequate.

My parents are in Sunrise of Lower Makefield. Everybody there was very informative. The only issue I had was when I made the initial arrangements I did not know there was an admission fee on top of pre-paying the monthly fee. They did not tell me that, and when I brought it up to the administrator, she said she would look at that, but I haven't heard anything, and I don't do the bills or anything, so I don't know if they made any adjustments. The place is beautiful, it's so open, but it's high priced too. My mom's room was really cute, it was clean, the staff was very accommodating, my mom liked some of them, and they were friendly. It was a two-story building, but they have an elevator. It really is like a palace when you go in, and it's got that big foyer with steps going up. The dining room was bigger, with fresh flowers on the table, and assigned places. I would call it a vacation if I was there. The people on the floor do everything, they were excellent, but for administration and communication, I might hang back and rate them a four. The food was excellent. I had several meals when I was down there with mom, and she loved the bingo, going out for lunch, the puzzles, singalongs, parties, and going to the beach.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Bucks County

Medicaid in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania seniors aged 65 and older who meet specific income and asset limits may qualify for coverage under Medicaid. In Pennsylvania, Medicaid is known as Medical Assistance

Eligibility guidelines for Medical Assistance coverage in Pennsylvania state that seniors must have an income no greater than $2,313 a month for single applicants and $4,626 for married couples applying together. These rates are based on 300 percent of the Social Security Income Federal Benefit Rate. Applicants must also meet asset limits of $2,000 for an individual and $4,000 for a married couple. Assets include cash, bonds, pension payments and stock dividends and exclude personal belongings, household furnishings, one vehicle and a primary place of residence valued at less than $585,000. 

In Pennsylvania, Medical Assistance does not cover the cost of assisted living for seniors; however, benefits may be available for seniors who require extra services and support while residing in an assisted living facility. 

Seniors who require assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and personal care may be eligible for funding through the Pennsylvania Community HealthChoices Program. The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services administers this newly launched program.

For more information on Medicaid, call the Consumer Service Center at (866) 550-4355 or the Bucks County Assistance Office at (215) 781-3300. 

To learn more about the Community HealthChoices program, call (833) 735-4416.
