Frequently Asked Questions

We always welcome visitors. We recommend visiting between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you have a special circumstance, please speak with the charge nurse on duty so alternate visiting hours may be arranged.

Although we do not have a formal policy stating visitation guidelines, we suggest using the common areas of the facility to meet with your loved one. If it is not possible to visit in one of the common areas, we suggest a limit of one to three people in a resident room at one time.

You may reserve the activity room for any special event (birthday, holidays, meals) in advance. Please contact the Activity Department.

We encourage children to visit, however, we ask you to alert the charge nurse to anyone visiting the facility under the age 12.

We would love for your family pet to come visit. Please remember to clean up after them and take the proper safety measures at all times. All pets should also be kept on a leash.

Physicians generally see patients upon admission and once every 30 days thereafter. However, our nursing professionals are in constant contact with all of the physicians that visit the facility. Some insurance companies require that physicians visit more often. Check with our nursing staff for further information.

Patients may have a leave of absence only with MD authorization, which can be arranged through nursing staff. The resident or responsible party upon arrival and departure must sign the LOA (leave of absence) book, located at the nursing stations.
