FAQ

Do you have a waiting list?
Usually not but, you are encouraged to submit your application and PRI as soon as you make a decision to admit yourself or your family member. Affinity has a very active rehabilitation program therefore the facility has admissions and discharges almost daily. On occasion there may be a wait for a private room or a specific unit. The admissions department can let you know if there is a wait for a private room and approximately how long that might be.
How much notice do I need to give before I can admit my family member to the facility?
Each case is individualized. If a prospective client is in a hospital, the hospital will work in conjunction with Affinity to facilitate the move quickly, generally in a matter of days. We provide assistance with a variety of different placement issues, examples are admissions from home, out of town and even out of state. If you need placement from home, and assessment called a PRI (Patient Review Instrument) is required which would be valid for 90 days. If the PRI and the application are approved, it is possible to admit a person within 24-48 hours.
