"When people walk into a place that has been carefully prepared, they are more likely to surrender themselves to it, trusting that whoever cared so much for the room might also care for them." Barbara Brown Taylor

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What makes Assisted Living at The Lodge at Bethany any different from Personal Care Homes located in the Statesboro community?
The Lodge at Bethany is the first and only facility in Statesboro licensed as an Assisted Living Community (ALC) under Georgia law. This important designation offers Residents the ability to live in place in an environment that will allow the staff members to assist the Residents for a longer period of time in the pleasant home-like atmosphere of The Lodge.
2. Can The Lodge provide assistance with the administration of medications? Is that any different from a Personal Care Home?
As an ALC, The Lodge at Bethany is authorized and required to have staff who are Certified Medication Aides (CMA) and/or licensed nurses who can actually administer medications unlike the staff of a Personal Care Home that is only allowed to assist in the administration of medications unless there is a trained Proxy Caregiver authorized by the Residents or their Representatives to do so.
3. Are there any other advantages to The Lodge over other Communities in Statesboro and the surrounding area?
As a not for profit, faith-based, 501(c)(3) organization, The Lodge at Bethany has a number of advantages, including the fact that the organization has such a rich and proven history of Mission and Service to the Residents and families that have and will continue to be served. The Lodge is distinctly certified and licensed in accordance with the Life Safety Code requirements of an Assisted Living Community to have staff that can assist with self-preservation in the event of an emergency, a term that describes a person’s mobility and ability to ambulate to a point of safety in the event of an emergency, which allows the Resident to live within The Lodge longer than in a Personal Care Home.
4. Does The Lodge accept Medicare and/or Medicaid to assist in the payment for the services provided?
Medicare does not offer any benefits for the provision of Assisted Living or Personal Care Home services at this time (and never has). Additionally, the services provided for those who meet the difficult eligibility criteria for Medicaid programs in Assisted Living or Personal Care Home services are limited in the amount that will be paid and in the services that are covered by Medicaid. For these reasons, the cost for the provision of services at The Lodge will not be paid by Medicare or Medicaid (and this is true of most Assisted Living and Personal Care Homes in this area).
5. Are there other available financial aid provisions that might assist in the payment for The Lodge?
Payment for The Lodge is generally payable from three sources: Private pay from the resources of the individual and/or their family; benefits available under a Long Term Care Policy, which generally will pay towards the services provided by an assisted living community such as The Lodge; and Veteran’s Administration benefits for those who meet the qualifications that are intended and designed to help veterans and their surviving spouses who require a caregiver to assist with activities of daily living, including bathing and dressing.

Other resources that can supplement private pay include traditional resources, such as 401(k), pension, and Social Security benefits, home equity loan or line of credit, the surrender or loan from a life insurance policy, or the equity of the sale of real estate no longer necessary because of the provisions of living in a Senior Community.
