Admissions

Admitting a family member to a skilled nursing/rehabilitation facility such as LindenGrove Communities may be one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make. We will help guide you through this process.

Steps to Take Prior to Admission to LindenGrove Communities

The Admissions Staff at each of the LindenGrove Communities campuses will help make the admission process as seamless and accommodating for you as possible. If you have a scheduled elective surgery, you are encouraged to contact the Admissions Director at your preferred LindenGrove Communities location prior to hospitalization. If you have an unplanned hospitalization, you are encouraged to meet with the Hospital Care Coordinator to request to be discharged to LindenGrove Communities. The Care Coordinator will then make a referral to LindenGrove Communities for admission consideration. To be better prepared for Hospital Discharge, which may occur quickly, families are encouraged to do the following as soon as possible prior to an admission to a LindenGrove facility:

 

What to Expect in the First Few Days of Admission

When you and your loved one arrive, a LindenGrove Communities staff member will greet you and escort you to your room to begin the admissions process where you will:

  • Complete admission paperwork
  • Provide copies of all insurance cards
  • Provide copies of Power of Attorney
  • Participate in a nursing assessment
  • Participate in a therapy evaluation and receive your first treatment, if applicable

 

What to Bring When Moving-In & What to Leave at Home

We want you to feel at home, surrounded by familiar items. Family photos can be comforting and a bulletin board is provided for displaying greeting cards, photos, etc. All personal items brought to the facility should be labeled. All personal clothing is labeled by LindenGrove Communities with a computer-printed label. Avoid bringing valuable or fragile items. To ensure everyone's safety, heating items with cords are not permitted in the room, such as coffee pots, electric blankets, heating pads, space heaters, hair dryers, and curling irons. Medications are strictly regulated by our Nursing Personnel. Do not bring medications, either prescription or over-the-counter, into the facility. Basic toiletry items will be provided on a routine basis.

 

As You Settle-In at LindenGrove Communities

It will take a few days to become accustomed to the staff and the routines. Staff will continue to introduce themselves and your own routine will become more familiar. We are learning about you and you are learning about us during this time. We are committed to timely and honest two-way communication to help best meet your needs while at LindenGrove Communities.

 

Visitors Are Welcome, Both 2-Legged & 4-Legged

Suggested visiting hours are between 8 a.m.-9 p.m. When you arrive, please enter and exit the building through the main entrance. The lounge area, dining room, and conference room can be used to visit, as well as in your loved one's room. In good weather, enjoy time visiting outdoors on patios or in gardens. LindenGrove Communities has 4 of the 5 Eden Alternative Registry Members in the state of Wisconsin. Following the Eden Philosophy, we work to combat helplessness, boredom, and loneliness by having plants, animals, children, and intergenerational volunteers in LindenGrove Communities facilities. Personal pets are welcomed visitors. Prior to bringing the pet to the facility, the family/designated party must provide LindenGrove Communities with a copy of the animal's current immunizations. Dogs are to arrive on a leash, cats in a cat carrier. Please take note that each LindenGrove Communities campus is smoke-free and weapons are not allowed.

 

LindenGrove Communities Admission Staff Will Help You Every Step of the Way

Whether your stay at LindenGrove Communities will be short-term or longer, whether you're familiar with skilled nursing facilities or not, and whether you pre-planned your admission or not, the Admission Director will help each new patient to feel at ease in your new surroundings. Every LindenGrove Communities staff member works to provide you with an environment that will help foster your independence and improve your quality of life.
