We know that choosing a senior living community can feel overwhelming — we’re here to help.

If you are considering placement immediately or in the near future, the best place to start is by contacting our Social Services office at (814) 836-5301.

Admission Process and Requirements

During the admission process, each person will be asked to complete an admission application and submit a medical evaluation conducted by a physician. You’ll also be asked to provide financial and insurance information to help determine your ability to pay for your care. All persons are strongly encouraged to have an Advance Directive such as a Living Will and a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care.

We specialize in serving older adults, most of whom are above the age of 65. Generally, your medical needs will be the primary factor in determining admission and what level of care is appropriate. We recommend speaking with a member of our team before submitting an application to discuss your needs and availability. There are no application fees.

    What to Expect

    From the Hospital

    Prior to being discharged from the hospital, a hospital discharge coordinator will talk with you about your choices and will contact Saint Mary’s at Asbury Ridge concerning your needs. The hospital will then work with our Clinical Liaison to make arrangements for your transfer to Saint Mary’s. Once you arrive, our care team will help you get settled, meet with you to complete some paperwork and answer any questions you or your family might have.

    • Ask for Saint Mary’s
      • If you or your loved one is in the hospital and requires the care of a skilled nursing facility, you can request that Saint Mary’s at Asbury Ridge be contacted for placement.
    • Plan Your Stay
      • If you are planning for a surgery such as a knee or hip replacement, you can contact Saint Mary’s at Asbury Ridge in advance to arrange for your rehab stay post-surgery.

    From Home

    If you’re beginning to think about senior living options for you or your loved one, we can help assist you in determining what level of care might best fit your needs. We’ll guide you through the process, discuss availability and help you establish a plan for next steps. We know the best way to determine if a community is right for you is to see it for yourself! We can meet with you in-person or start the conversation over the phone based on your schedule and whatever is more convenient for you and your family.
