What do I need to bring?

Clothing pre-labelled (4-5 outfits is plenty as laundry services are daily) keeping in mind the season, sturdy footwear, health card, medications, and any comforts of home (familiar quilt or blanket, family photos, artwork, etc.). For men, it is helpful to have an electric razor.

 

How do I pay for medications?

We work closely with our local pharmacy who supplies medications for residents. They will send a bill at the end of each month. It is a good idea to look into pharma care in helping offset costs.

 

Should I have cash on hand?

We recommend that valuables be kept locked up. You can set up a trust account with the Director of Finance for hair care, treats, etc.

 

What about furniture?

There is a 4 drawer dresser and 3 drawer nightstand for each person along with a closet and shelves in the bathroom. Some rooms may not be able to accommodate furniture from home. If able, these items must be California Code approved. Also, any appliances (lamps, fans, etc.) must be CSA approved.

 

How do I get a private room?

There is no waiting list for a private room. These are assigned based on need of those living in the home. There are times when room assignments may need to change based on needs of the residents, equipment, etc.
