Independent Living Admission Criteria for Pairs
Williamsburg Landing recognizes that circumstances may exist in which one member of a pair applying for admission does not independently meet the criteria for admission and is best served in a different living environment. In such cases, it may be feasible for both members to live together in an independent living unit with one member of the pair serving as caregiver—if so, Williamsburg Landing may accept the application of the caregiving resident and will work with the applicant to assess options, including but not limited to the following:
1. Acceptance of the caregiving applicant as a resident, with the provision that the applicant not meeting the criteria for admission is admitted as a “non-resident guest” (subject to the provisions for guests in the residency agreement) as long as the caregiving applicant is able to provide or arrange for appropriate care. Williamsburg Landing shall not be obligated to provide admission to a higher level of care to the non-resident guest, in the event the caregiving resident becomes unable or unwilling to provide or arrange for appropriate care at the independent living level.
2. Acceptance of the caregiving applicant as a resident, with the provision that the spouse not meeting the criteria for admission is offered admission to an appropriate level of care as a non-resident on a space available basis.
In deciding to offer one of these options, Williamsburg Landing will take into consideration results of all health screening evaluations as well as financial screening information. The terms of the Residency Agreement may be modified through an appropriate Addendum addressing any specific care requirements, modifications to the living unit, emergency monitoring devices and the like, as may be required.
