Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be Catholic to move into St. Agnes Home?
Absolutely not. Anyone over the age of 65, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, citizenship, or marital or veteran status, is welcome at St. Agnes Home.
Would I have to leave St. Agnes Home when my needs demand more nursing care?
Usually not. The majority of our residents remain with us to the end of their days. If nursing needs require a respirator or continuous IV therapy, or if one becomes exit-seeking or poses a threat to the safety of him/herself or others, discharge would be considered.
How do I know whether I can afford to live at St. Agnes Home? Does St. Agnes Home accept Medicaid funds?
St. Agnes Home is a private pay facility and does not have Medicaid certified beds. After the applicant submits the confidential financial statement, the likelihood of sufficient funds for the appropriate level of care is examined on a case by case basis. Alternative resources for funds include the possibility of Veterans Benefits, long term care insurance, and more.
If I move into St. Agnes Home can I keep my own doctors?
Yes, residents are welcome to keep their own doctors, but the family accepts the responsibility of transporting or paying for a transport service. However, they also have the option of switching to one of our house doctors who make regular visits to monitor their patients’ health status. Podiatrists, dentists, and Mobile Eye Care Solutions also make occasional in-house visits, a convenience which many residents appreciate.
