Private Pay & Memory Care

The application process for residents at Mountainside Senior Living is comprehensive and explores the medical, financial and also a more holistic approach, by exploring the potential new resident's hobbies, interests and past experiences. 

We ask that all residents who are interested in joining our community to click on the link to complete the application. Once completed and received, our Transition Counselor will review the application to make sure that all criteria are met. Once the application has been reviewed, our Counselor will follow up with the resident and their family as to next steps.

We continually strive to make the transition from home to our community or from the hospital to our community as stress free and hassle free as possible. Every step of the way we will be there, from answering questions about the application to coordinating with your primary care physician for medical paperwork to helping move your furniture into your room here. 

We are so excited that you are taking this next step and we can't wait to help be apart of your transition.

Auxiliary Grant

As part of our mission to serve the community, Mountainside also reserves 44 spots for Auxiliary Grants. These grants are sponsored by Virginia Social Services Department and help seniors who may not be able to afford senior care without assistance. Many seniors who are able to qualify for Medicare are able to qualify for the Auxiliary Grant.

Residents must contact Social Services in the county that they have resided in (for example, Albemarle County, City of Charlottesville, Nelson County, etc).

The need for these grants is in high demand, so there the possibility that residents may have to be placed on a waiting list prior to being offered a room at Mountainside.


Respite Care

Even though respite care means short term, we think it is just as important to make sure that the resident and their family feel comfortable and like part of our community. Our respite application ensures that this is no breakdown in communication on resident care and routines. By taking the time to figure out the resident's favorite things and routines, we are able to provide quality care with minimal disruptions.
