What steps are necessary to complete before you or your loved one can be admitted?
- Pre-screening from a community senior services agency. We can refer you to an agency in your area. This screening is required by the State for any facility. This agency determines the level of need for nursing home care. Once the screening declares long-term care is necessary, you have a 90-day grace period in which you must be admitted to a long-term care setting. If a decision is made after the grace period, a new screening is required.
- Submission of a physical taken within 5 days prior to your admittance or within 72 hours after admission to our center. Your physical must include a current medical history to help us better understand your needs.
- A list of current medications you are taking.
- Upon receipt and approval of the above submitted information, we will contact you to set a time and date for admission.
- Upon the day of admission, or any time prior to that day, your review and signature of the Admission Agreement contract is required for all long-term care facilities. This contract allows us the consent to provide treatment and care. We prefer to meet with you in advance so that we can address your concerns and answer any questions you may have before joining our family.
