Once a prospective resident chooses Holistic Care Home, a completed application is submitted. This includes a Physician’s Evaluation which is completed by a physician and sent to Holistic Care Home. There is no fee to submit an application.
When the apartment of choice becomes available, the prospective resident signs the “Residence Fee Agreement”. Once the physician’s evaluation form is received, our Wellness Director completes an in-depth assessment of the individual care needs of the applicant.
While most residents move to Holistic Care Home as their permanent residence, there are some circumstances that warrant a short-term lease. Many people requiring assistance following a hospitalization, needing support while care providers are away, or who would like to live in one of our communities before making a final commitment to move, take advantage of the short term (respite) option.
The respite option requires a minimum stay of 30 days and includes a furnished apartment, linens, towels, toiletries, basic cable and phone service. There is an additional daily fee for a second person when applicable.
An application and physician’s evaluation for each resident is required. Once the wellness assessment is complete, a respite agreement is executed. Often, when required, this process can be expedited within 24 hours.
