Somerset Court residents must be capable of either performing their personal basic care needs or engage the services of those able to provide for these needs.

Our staff will work with residents (who need additional services) and their family to assist them in securing such services. We also work closely with our residents to assist where possible to make performing activities of daily living easier and to minimize the amount of outside services required.

Somerset Court provides a Retirement/Assisted Living option to senior citizens. We are not a skilled nursing facility. Race, color, national origin, religion, or sex is not a determining factor for residency.

We provide facilities and services that enhance our residents’ abilities to be and remain independent. Residency is conditioned on residents not endangering the health, safety, or rights of other residents.

Prior to becoming a resident, our nurse or the facility administrator will do an assessment to help us ensure Somerset Court is able to provide the living environment that best meets the potential resident’s needs.

Somerset Court personal sservice requirements

To qualify to move to Somerset Court a potential resident must pass an assessment, and must:
  • Be able to come to the dining room for meals; if the distance is too far to walk, he/she must be able to get to the dining room with a walker, scooter, or motorized wheelchair without assistance from staff. If a resident must use a wheelchair, he/she must be able to get in and out of it and manipulate it themselves.
  • Be able to feed themselves. Staff provides assistance with cartons and packets if requested or needed.
  • Be able to get in and out of bed and on and off the toilet without personal assistance.
  • Be able to manage his/her incontinence. Our staff will provide reminders for this if requested.
  • Be able to get around in his/her apartment on their own or with assistive devices.
  • Be able to respect the rights and property of other residents.
  • Be able to partially dress him/herself. We assist with shoes, socks, ted hose, belts, buckles, etc. as requested.

If we are unable to determine if Somerset Court is able to provide the services needed by the resident through our normal assessment process, we may recommend that a resident move in on a 30-day trial basis. If, during the trial period, we determine that we are unable to meet the service levels required by the resident, we will notify the resident and/or resident’s family members and assist them with an appropriate transition.

If a resident is accepted and later is unable to meet the above criteria, we will inform the resident and/or family members of the options open to them and work with them to find the best option for their loved one.

Residency at Somerset Court is month to month. We must receive notice by the first of the month prior to the month the resident moves out. Emergencies will be reviewed on an individual basis.
