When reaching out to the senior care facilities listed on this page it can be valuable - though not mandatory - to have the resident's history available. Consider preparing a brief medical history summary. Be sure to include any relevant insurance, doctor and medical center names and phone numbers as the new facility onboarding manager might have some questions. This type of information can aid in outlining any specialized care the individual might need, which helps with cost estimates.
