Monthly fees are based on long-term resident care service with rates derived from room and board, plus clinical service level of the individual. Customary resident payment sources are derived from private pay, program subsidies, and other outside sources; such as, Veteran’s Aide and Attendance, long-term care insurance, family contributions, and Medicaid.
Unfortunately, Medicaid does not cover all of the cost for a resident, without some additional financial subsidy. One year private pay may be required before rolling to Medicaid, depending on availability. For added assistance upon rollover, contingent upon his/her financial status, the resident may have the option to move to a double occupancy room to help defray cost. If you have a concern about affordability, you’re not alone. It may be to your advantage to arrange a confidential consultation with us to investigate your options.
Did you know that you may quality for additional financial assistance based on certain criteria under the Veteran’s Aide and Attendance program? If you and/or your spouse are military veterans and would like additional information, please let us know. We’re happy to help.
Room and Board
Room and board is a standard fixed fee for all residents, based on the room model and customary services, such as meals, cleaning services, laundry, and other building and service amenities. This portion of the monthly rate typically does not fluctuate often and may be adjusted annually to reflect the cost of living. Whereas the clinical service level could slide up and/or down periodically depending on the individual needs.
A short admissions application must be completed and signed to get the process started. All potential residents must complete a Resident Needs Assessment (RNA) prior to admission approval to determine the clinical service level monthly fee.
One of Lenity’s professional team members will informally conduct the assessment by asking questions regarding assistance with mobility, personal hygiene, transferring, incontinence, dressing, bathing, meals, medication distribution, health care coordination, housekeeping, laundry, and/or other specific needs/service.
In addition to the Resident Needs Assessment, the potential residents’ attending physician must complete a Physician’s Care Assessment (PCA) regarding the health care needs and medications/dosage for his/her patient.
Together we’ll review, sign, and complete all of the required paperwork, including fees, and answer any questions/concerns you may have.
Upon admission approval, an Individual Care Plan (ICP) will then be initiated to incorporate the information gathered through these established processes and tools. The ICP is routinely updated as we get better acquainted and/or as the needs and desires of the individual change. Moving forward, the clinical service needs must be periodically reviewed, assessed, and adjusted for each individual to appropriately reflect the payment level.
The entire admission process can feel overwhelming, but not to worry, that’s our job. To request a helpful check list of things to do and expect in preparation, let us know.
We strictly adhere to the State of Idaho regulations that provide the framework pertaining to resident move-in/out responsibilities, written contracts (admission and discharge), record keeping, mandatory resident care and service, and resident rights.
