Admissions Process

There are steps to be admitted to long term care facilities that each new resident must take. 

  1. Speak with your health care provider:
    • If you're in the hospital your doctor is recommending skilled nursing, rehabilitation, or long term care, communicate your choice of facility to your case manager or social worker planning your discharge.
    • If you're coming from home or assisted living, make an appointment to visit your primary doctor. 
    • We need updated health information from the last 10 days to get an accurate snapshot of your health situation.
  2. Speak with your family. 
    • ​​Get a Power of Attorney for Health and Property if you don't already have one.
    • Let them know your wishes.
    • Encourage them to tour or check out our website.
    • Ask them to help you gather necessary items like clothing, toiletries, and any entertainment devices you may want (TV, radio, tablet, laptop).
    • Ask them to help you manage your affairs and change your address if needed.
  3. We'll Evaluate Your Information
    • ​​As with any facility, not every potential resident is a great fit. We'll need to check your medical status, compliance with treatment, and criminal background.
    • If you have private insurance, we may need to ask them for authorization to accept you.
  4. ​Transfer Date
    • ​​We'll set a transfer date to bring you from home or facility to us.
    • Transfer depends on your health. Some people can have family take them. Others get transferred by van or ambulance.
  5. ​Meet the Team
    • ​Our team will be anxious to meet you when you get here.
    • Make sure to let them know about any preferences for food, activities, or anything else we can do to make your stay more comfortable.
