Frequently Asked Questions

I’m in good health. Why do I need to enroll in Confident Living now?

Enrolling while you are healthy allows you to take full advantage of the tools and services we offer that promote resiliency and allow you to age well. Too often people wait until there is a health crisis before making a decision. This can affect your eligibility as well as impact the rates for your fees.

Can you explain the membership plan options?

Confident Living offers a Premier Plan, Home Care Plan, or Care Coordination Plan, each of which is customizable to fit your needs.

What happens if I need care while I am traveling or decide to move?

If you relocate anywhere in the United States after you have been a member for one year, you carry your Confident Living plan with you. Confident Living will contract with a geriatric care manager in that area who will work with your Care Coordinator to arrange any services you may need.

What happens if/when I get sick?

Your trusted Care Coordinator will arrange and monitor your needs. If that means coordinating doctor visits, preparing your home for hospital discharge, arranging in-home care or medical equipment, or communicating with family, your Care Coordinator will manage everything.

Who determines the status of my health for admission into the program?

Your health status is determined using a questionnaire that is completed by you and your Plan Counselor. Once that has been completed, a medical information release form is signed by you to allow our independent underwriter to review your personal physician notes and health questionnaire. An underwriter will also conduct a personal interview as part of the process to determine your eligibility.

Will the membership fees increase?

Membership fees for Confident Living are guaranteed not to change for at least five years. After that time, fees may be adjusted due to changes in the costs of providing care. Your fees will never go up due to a change in your health or an increase in your age.

What would happen if I chose to move into an independent living home in a retirement community?

The Confident Living program will follow you to your new independent living home in a retirement community. Your Care Coordinator will ensure that you receive the appropriate services and serves as your advocate in your new community.

Who is eligible to apply for membership?

Application for Confident Living membership is open to individuals aged 50 to 80 years old who are in reasonably good health and are living independently.

How is the decision made about home-care services that I may need during membership?

Your Care Coordinator will conduct a detailed functional assessment and discuss your care concerns and needs. Based on your requirements for assistance with activities of daily living, the quantity, frequency, duration, and kinds of services will be established during the discussion and recorded in your care plan.

I understand Confident Living helps me age in my own home; but what if there comes a time when I require care in an assisted living facility or nursing home?

Confident Living will recommend trusted assisted living facilities and nursing homes throughout the region. Your Care Coordinator can arrange a visit to these facilities for you or your family member to determine whether one is right for you.

Is there a Care Coordinator designated just to me?

Yes, you have a designated Care Coordinator who is part of a Care Coordination team. Members of the team provide services should your Care Coordinator be unavailable.

What if I have an urgent need to reach my Care Coordinator?

For true emergencies, dial 911. Our Care Coordinators can be reached by calling 513- 719-3522. They can handle urgent calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Why aren’t you able to provide prices for me on the website?

Confident Living membership plans are highly personalized with many options. Variables such as your age at the time of enrollment, the type of plan you choose and the level of daily future service credit you select all enter into the calculation.

What happens if I do not like the Care Coordinator assigned to me?

If a member’s relationship with their Care Coordinator is not positive, another member of the Care Coordination team may be available to support them with their goals and other health-related needs should they arise.
