Please note that I am writing this to you as a guide to assist you. I have had many family members voice frustration with me as to the "how's" of navigating through the medical assistance application process at Assisted Living Duluth, MN. I am not an attorney, and this is not legal advice but rather things I have learned over the past 25 years of helping families through the process.
We accept the GRH, Group Residential Housing rent rate which the State of MN determines every summer, for a shared companion room. This means that you can only remain in a private room while on medical assistance, if someone other than the person applying for medical assistance chooses to pay the private room differential for the resident.
At Keystone Bluffs Assisted Living, seniors must have self-preservation skills. As a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator, I helped design a NEXT STEP for those who no longer have self-preservation skills. Convalescent Home Duluth, MN caters to seniors who do not have self-preservation skills. Here are some examples of seniors who do not have self-preservation skills:
1. The ability to pull their call light or call pendant for unscheduled services. This means a change of condition where they feel they need further assistance. The aides and nurses come into their room for scheduled events (medication administration, shower assistance etc.) In Between these times, a senior must be able to alert Keystone Staff for any change of condition for additional needs.
2. If a senior is no longer able to independently feed themselves. At Keystone Bluffs Assisted Living we do not feed seniors in their apartment or in the common dining room.
3. If a senior has a change in mental status where they exhibit qualities that become disruptive to their neighbors and or display qualities that may put themselves or others at risk of injury. Some examples may include:
