Villa Siena is open to seniors sixty years and older, who meet Villa Siena health and financial requirements. Determination of admission is to be made without discrimination of age, sex, handicap, race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry. While Villa Siena is a Catholic sponsored home, residents of all faiths are welcomed.
Levels of care – Independent Living, assisted Living, and skilled nursing level care is provided at Villa Siena. Details of services provided for each level of care is explained in the Villa Siena brochure. Most admissions to the Nursing Care Unit (SNF), which provides 24-hour nursing care to those who can no longer live independently or with minimal assistance, are persons presently living at Villa Siena. The SNF has a limited capacity and space cannot be guaranteed to an individual needing care at any particular point in time.
Admission Steps – If you’re interested in joining our Villa Siena community, arrange for a tour and then take the next steps:
1) Three Forms. Complete and turn in the three forms: “Preliminary Application for Residency,” “Villa Siena Health Questionnaire,” and “Villa Siena Financial Worksheet.” A potential resident file will then be created and an initial review for approval completed by the Executive Director.
2) “Wait List” – When you’re ready to say “yes” to an available room within a reasonable period (6 months), submit a non-refundable $100 fee (check made out to Villa Siena) to be put on the “wait list.”
3) Room Assignment and Health Assessment – When a room is available, you will be notified. After confirming that you want the room, and a current Physician’s Report is received, a health assessment will be scheduled with our Director of Nursing.
4) Admission Packet & Fees – Upon completing a successful health assessment and mutual agreement to continue the admission process, you’ll be asked to complete a full admissions packet, plan for a move-in date, and make other arrangements to become a resident. Payment of the $1,200 admissions processing fee and the first month’s rent is due upon final application for admission.
Wait List Procedures – Available rooms are offered to those potential residents on the “wait list” in order of the date they were placed on the list. Those on the “wait list” not ready to take an available room within a 6 month period will be removed from the list and placed on an “inactive list.” Any exceptions to the “wait list” procedures will be determined by the Executive Director, and if needed will be referred to the assigned Daughter of Charity Councilor.
Health Requirements – Services provided to residents vary, based on their level of care. Minimum health requirements for independent and assisted living include a resident getting themselves to the dining room and back without assistance. Walkers and canes are fine. Wheel chairs are OK, as long as the resident can self-propel and can independently transfer in and out of their wheel chair. Villa Siena is not licensed for memory care (Dementia and Alzheimers). The facility can accommodate the needs of seniors with mild cognitive impairment, validated through a health assessment.
Financial Requirements – The monthly rate is based on the level of care provided and is determined by the pre-admission health assessment. See the current “Fee Schedule” for rates. The initial monthly payment is pro-rated to the move-in date. The Villa Siena Foundation, existing to support the charitable purposes of Villa Siena, makes it possible for some seniors who exhaust their financial resources to remain at Villa Siena without paying the full cost of their care.
