Application for Residency.pdf    

This life transition takes lots of preparation and discussion. As you start the admission process, there are some important things for you to consider. For example, whatever decisions are made should include the family member if at all possible.

The new resident should visit St. Joseph's Place (former St. Catherine Nursing Center), enjoy a complimentary meal, have a tour and get a feel for the facility. The criteria for admission begins with an assessment by a physician of a patient's medical and physical requirements. This assessment evaluates your loved one's need for assistance with daily living activities. Once that assessment is complete, then our treatment team reviews the information to see how we can best meet your loved ones needs. In addition, an application must be completed including health care cards, advance directives and biographical information.

To apply for admission, download the form below and email it to our Admissions Coordinator, Allison Brown at or print and fax it to our confidential fax number, 301-447-7015. We want to be with you every step of the way.
