history from their provider. Our nurse carefully reviews the records to ensure we can meet all their needs. If everything checks out, we proceed to setting up an assessment appointment.

If the assessment goes well, we move on to the paperwork and helping the person select their apartment. To secure the chosen apartment, a $500 holding fee is required. Once that’s done, we schedule a move-in day.

During the first month, our dedicated care staff assists the new resident in getting acquainted with their new surroundings. The entire move-in process typically takes about 1 to 2 weeks.

We strive to make the transition as smooth as possible, providing excellent care and support every step of the way.
