The criteria we use for placement are: Level of Care needs, Budget requirements, and Location.
We complete a full psycho-social evaluation on each individual we place. This includes all current medical needs and the individuals social well being requests. We will review the options available based upon this evaluation and provide CHOICES.
We typically conduct financial interview asking if person has a Long Term Care Policy, verify monthly income and other assets. Further we discuss possibilities of obtaining admission onto Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS), and review whether an individual could qualify for Military benefits. We advise families on financial planning for the placement and recommend options should they need further assistance.
Lastly, we ask the individual/family what area they would like us to concentrate our search for a new home. We typically ask for a mile radius to assist us in our search.
