Admissions

Who we Serve: Rose Meadow residents are adults from diverse personal backgrounds, but all have experienced life- altering events through work related injuries, personal accidents or neurological trauma which make complex specialized daily care necessary. Specifically, Rose meadow serves individuals 18+ years who:

  1. Are diagnosed with acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, developmental disabilities or other related neurological trauma or disease.
  2. Require nursing support, medical management and attendant care
  3. Have complex medical management needs ie: ventilator dependent, trach care, g-tube feeding, etc.
  4. Require up to 24 hours supervision and structure for personal safety and well being.
  5. Require support with activities of daily living, personal care, mobility, and transfers
  6. May benefit from neuropsychological counseling, physical, occupational, and speech therapies
  7. Require long term, short term or respite accommodations.

Requirements: A pre-admission evaluation 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.

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.

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 evaluation 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 Community Care Waiver Program: ABD (Acquired Brain Disorder) or DD (Developmental Disabilities)
