About Joshua Springs Senior Living
Joshua Springs Senior Living is a 3-story, senior housing community which opened in December 2015 and consists of 74 independent plus/assisted living apartments as well as 30 memory care suites within a 96,000 square foot building.
We currently have 3 basic plans for individuals who choose to live within our community:1. Independent Plus – Individuals 65+ years who just don’t want to cook, clean, or perform home maintenance, while adding the benefit of safety, security and companionship.
2. Assisted Living w/Individualized Service Plan– This includes everything in the Independent Plus plan but caters to each resident with services to accommodate their needs as they occur. These plans are tracked by points which equate to dollars. The points are calculated by time, preference and frequency. At this level residents can get help with things like bathing, dressing, reminders, bed to wheelchair transfers, feeding assistance, escorts to meals and activities, incontinence care and more.

Paying for Assisted Living:
Assisted living is paid privately, unless you have a specific Long Term Care Insurance policy that you have paid into which can assist you in the cost. You would need to discuss this with your insurance agent for the details of your plan.
There is a non-service connected VA benefit available to certain veterans which can greatly assist veterans and their surviving spouses in paying for care such as assisted living when it is necessary. This benefit is called the VA Aid & Attendance Pension Benefit. We recommend contacting a VA benefit counselor. Ask for contact info. if needed.
Joshua Springs does offer a 5% discount of the base rent price each month for veterans. Joshua Springs has been approved to accept Medicaid on a limited and case by case basis. Provisions need to be discussed for acceptance and application process must be approved through the state for consideration.
Pricing can be found on our rate sheet and a deposit must be made before an apartment can be held.
