Admission Requirements

A pre-admission assessment is conducted for every potential admission.  The process begins with a medical records review to determine if the potential resident is medically acceptable for our program.  If so, a physical assessment of the potential resident is arranged.  The assessment can be performed at their current location, be it their residence, acute hospital or rehabilitation center or at Rose Meadow by one of our management members that is RAT (Residential Assessment Tool) certified by the State of New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services.

Using the information provided in the medical records and gathered by completing the Residential Assessment Tool we determine if Rose Meadow is an appropriate placement for the potential resident and if so, will issue acceptance into our program pending funding approval.  We are also able to determine which program the potential resident would be better served at, what the per diem rate would be to care for that potential resident and an initial Care Plan that would meet all of their medical, safety and social needs.

Medical Condition:

Our first concern is that the potential resident is medically stable in order to be considered for our program.  We can provide outstanding medical care for residents ranging from those that are ambulatory and physically fully functioning but have memory deficits and/or safety concerns to residents that are medically complex and require total care in all aspects of daily living.  We can also care for residents that have significant medical requirements such as those that are ventilator dependent.

Behaviors:

Minor re-directable behaviors are very common with most brain injuries.  These can include short bursts of anxiety and agitation, perseverating or fixating on a subject, or sporadic verbal outburst and use of inappropriate language.  Our Rose Meadow staff members are trained on many re-direction techniques and can help a resident work through these minor incidents.

Rose Meadow however, is not equipped to handle significant behavioral issues.  Our small programs and home like atmosphere cannot accommodate behaviors that disrupt the living environment of our other residents or those that may prove harmful to themselves, residents or staff.

All residents must have a consistent history of demonstrating behaviors that are safe to themselves and others in order to be accepted into our program.

Funding:

Our completed Pre-Admission Assessment provides all the necessary information required by most funding sources.  Our management team will work closely and directly with the funding source to ensure they receive all the pertinent information they may need to establish budgets in a timely manner and obtain a smooth financial approval.

Rose Meadow generally accepts funding from the following sources:

  • Workers’ Compensation Insurance
  • Private Funds
  • Structured Settlements
  • Litigation Liens
  • Private Health Insurance
  • NH Medicaid ABD (Acquired Brain Disorder) Community Care Waiver Program
  • NH Medicaid DD (Developmental Disibilities) Community Care Waiver Program
