Admissions Process

The first step in the process of admitting to Cornerstone Gardens Health Care and Rehabilitation is to have a resident assessment completed. When this assessment is completed, appropriate staff and the resident and/or responsible party can sit down and discuss admission to Cornerstone Gardens Health Care and Rehabilitation. The average wait for admission varies; therefore it is helpful to plan ahead.

When a room is offered and has been accepted, the next step is securing an appointment with a physician to complete a "History and Physical" examination (must be current within 3 days). Additionally, orders for admission, medications and treatments are required. Our Admission Coordinator will assist you in this process.

Upon admission to Cornerstone Gardens Health Care and Rehabilitation, a multidisciplinary team meets with the new resident and family to gather information necessary to provide appropriate care, as well as to discuss goals regarding future plans. These potential plans include a long-term stay, returning home, home health care, assisted living, basic care, etc. Our social service staff will maintain involvement at all times.
