When the Wellness Nurse meets with each prospective resident and his/her family to complete the assessment, she begins to develop the resident’s individualized service plan. This is used to ensure that services and support are in place from the first day of residency.
During the assessment interview, the nurse reviews the evaluation submitted by the physician, and discusses opportunities for The Residence at Lopo to provide needed support. Once a successful assessment is completed, the process moves forward to signing the lease and scheduling a move-in date.
Applications are reviewed by the management to determine the applicant’s ability to meet the financial obligations of the monthly fee.
