FAQ

Does one need to be Catholic to live at Saint Anne’s?

Absolutely not…Saint Anne Communities welcome people of all faiths.  There is a chapel on site as well as a full-time pastoral care team to meet your spiritual needs at either location.  Mass, Protestant Services and a variety of Bible Studies are available to enrich the lives of our residents.

What is the difference between Assisted Living and Nursing Home care?

Assisted Living care is offered when someone needs intermittent nursing care. Typically, this type of care is needed on a scheduled, as needed basis.  Nursing home care involves much closer monitoring and requires a nurse to be present 24 hrs. per day with increased interventions.

How do I know when it is time for mom/dad to consider leaving their home?

It is always best to start your search for a retirement community before a medical crisis occurs, primarily because it is most beneficial for the potential resident to be involved in the search process. It is time to start this search when the day-to-day tasks are becoming more difficult:

  • Meal Preparation
  • Taking Medications Correctly
  • Dressing and or bathing
  • Managing Finances
  • General Housekeeping

Do you provide several different levels of care under one roof?

Yes! Saint Anne Randallia Place is considered a CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community). This simply means that Saint Anne’s has several levels of health care options at one campus. Saint Anne’s offers:

  • Independent/Assisted Living apartments
  • 24-Hour Nursing Care
  • Specialized Memory Care
  • Rehabilitation Services
  • Adult Day Program

In addition, Saint Anne Grace Pointe is a free-standing assisted living facility located on the south side of Fort Wayne next to Bishop Luers High School.

Are you corporate owned or not-for-profit?

Saint Anne Communities is a not-for-profit facility. Saint Anne’s is a service of the Fort Wayne-South Bend Diocese.

Is there a wait list for your assisted living or nursing home care?

There can certainly be a waiting list from time to time.  But depending on the level of care one needs, the wait list varies depending on many factors:

  • Level of care needed
  • Apartment floor plan/location
  • Private or semi-private nursing home room
  • Skilled vs. intermediate needs

How does one know what level of care is needed?

A good place to start would be the admissions department. Making a phone call to ask some preliminary questions or to schedule a tour would be a good first step. Any one of the staff members in admissions would be happy to listen to your unique situation and offer guidance.
Prior to any admission, the director of nursing or a nurse manager will meet with the prospective resident and key family members to determine that individual’s specific needs.
