Criteria For Admission

An assessment of need will be undertaken by a senior member of staff. Following the assessment, the prospective resident’s needs will be discussed with senior staff to ensure that their needs can be met. Once it has been agreed that the placement is suitable, a placement will be offered.

Maricare Ltd does not normally agree to emergency admissions, and one will only be considered if the Manager or her deputy is able to gain suitable information to determine whether the needs of the prospective resident can be met by the services and facilities within the home. Any emergency admission is short term and will only be considered for the long term after full assessment and review.

The administration of assessment is contained below:

Administration of Assessment

• Arrange for an assessment either at the potential resident’s current address, hospital or at the home.
