Each Prospective guest will be evaluated on their level of independence, mobility, mental acuity, physical
health, dietary needs, and social compatibility.
- Mobility - Wheelchair bound persons must demonstrate their ability to transfer from chair to bed
with minimal assistance. All prospective guests must demonstrate the ability to evacuate the building with minimal assistance
in case of an emergency.
- Mental Acuity - All guests must be aware of their surroundings.
Forgetfulness of time, day, and possessions is acceptable. We will assist a person to find their room as necessary.
We do not care for persons with advanced Alzheimer's disease.
- Level of Independence - We
provide a broad range of supportive services. We will assist the guest with almost any task of daily living that they
cannot do independently. See Services for an in depth discussion of services we provide.
- Physical Health - We can provide
our guests with a broad range of assistance in managing their physical health care needs. Upon initial application a
State required MA51 physical evaluation form is completed by a physician. A determination will be made at that time
as to the persons physical health needs and if we can provide adequate care. If required, outside providers such as
the house physician, visiting nurse, podiatrist, physical therapist, or other health care professionals may provide care in
the home. See Services for additional information.
- Dietary Needs - We can accommodate most prescribed diets
including soft, diabetic, and low salt diets. See Food & Dietary Services for additional information.
- Social Compatibility - All guests are required to be respectful
toward other guests' dignity and rights to privacy. All guests are encouraged to participate in the scheduled activities
and to interact socially with the other guests. For more information visit the Activities page.
