The Admissions Department is the starting point for people seeking placement to Teresian House. We provide information to potential residents about services offered. The department receives numerous inquiries on a daily basis via telephone, correspondence, email and walk-ins.
Application packets are available on our website here, via mail and/or for pick-up at the reception desk, and occasionally faxed. Tours of the facility are offered at the convenience of the person inquiring; that process takes approximately 1 hour for a tour. The admission process is explained in full detail to ensure that the person inquiring has all the information needed to make an informed decision prior to making application to the facility.
A full assessment of the applicant’s needs is required to assure appropriate services and care can be provided. It is the responsibility of the Director of Admissions to collect and review the material with the Admissions Committee. The waiting list is needs based. When an opening occurs, the Admissions Committee selects the appropriate candidate from the Waiting List that is most in need of placement.
Scheduled Short Term Care Program “Respite” is available for persons inquiring about services offered on a short term basis (1 day and up to 42 days). Medicaid recipients are allowed maximum of 42 days respite per year with prior approval from their county of residence social services department. The application, approval and acceptance process is similar to the long term care process except there is no waiting list (based on availability).
For those in need of short-term respite care, Teresian House offers a homelike atmosphere, nursing care and special activities for short and temporary stays. All regular services provided to long-term residents are also available to those under respite care. Teresian House has 2 Medicaid or Private Pay certified beds. We are not Medicare approved for respite. Respite is scheduled for the specific dates requested once all required paperwork is received and approved by the admissions committee and as long as there is room availability.
