What is the process for admission?
First, we would love to meet you and have you come in for a visit and assessment. This assessment determines which type of assisted living you or your loved one will require.
From that point, there is a packet of admission paperwork that will need to be completed. You will also need a physical and TB test prior to admission.
Once we have all items, we can set up a date for admission. Please be advised that we do not take admissions on Friday afternoons, Saturdays and Sundays.
