Potential Residents will need to see their physician or nurse practitioner within 30 days prior to their admission for a physical examination. The physician or nurse practitioner must certify that the potential resident meets the qualifications for admission to a personal care home. The potential resident is not eligible for admission if they require 24-hour nursing care. Potential residents are required to have a TB skin test or a chest X-ray showing they do not have a communicable disease. Dogwood Gardens Senior Living will provide you the necessary forms for the physician or nurse practitioner to complete for the resident’s admission.
