General FAQ's

Can my loved one be eligible for any financial assistance?

We will assist in the application for long-term Medicaid, if needed and they qualify.

What am I allowed to bring into the facility?

We encourage you to bring items to make your room feel like home. If residents have a favorite recliner, a small refrigerator, and family portraits, we encourage residents to bring these items with them.

How much money will I have to pay if I get financial assistance?

Monthly liability will be calculated by the sum of all income minus $38.00, which is refunded to the resident monthly. Medicaid also allows for health insurance premiums to be deducted before monthly liability calculations.

How much does it cost to place my loved one in a nursing home?

We will be happy to discuss the financial aspects of nursing facility placement. By doing so, we can determine eligibility for Medicaid assistance. Monthly rates vary for nursing facilities. The best option is to contact the facility to discuss this.

How much assistance is given to each resident?

Assistance provided depends on the level of care needed by each individual. The facility offers a full-time Nurse Practitioner and available staff to meet the needs of each resident.

How often can I leave the facility?

When residing at a nursing facility, we want residents to feel as though they are at home. In saying this, residents are free to go on pass with family and friends as they choose as long as it is approved by administration and physician and does not interfere with care or therapy. However, Medicaid guidelines state that a person in a nursing facility cannot exceed fifteen 24-hour periods per calendar year away from the nursing facility.

Is family responsible for taking loved ones to doctor appointments?

No. Transportation is provided to doctor appointments, but families are encouraged to assist and be a part of all resident care meetings and physician appointments.
