St. Patrick's Mercy Home
Applicants can request three nursing homes of choice for placement.
All applications are processed through an Assessment and Placement Committee where acute care, community and nursing homes are represented. The applicant's level of care is determined and the applicant's name is appropriately placed on the waiting list.
When a vacancy occurs in a nursing home, a social worker on site contacts a Placement Coordinator at Health and Community Services. Applications are then forwarded to that nursing home, where an interdisciplinary review is completed. The social worker then contacts the appropriate applicant or family to offer placement.
