Medicare or Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) services are available if eligible in addition to traditional Nursing Facility (NF) care. Service can be arranged for physical, occupational, and speech therapy, audiologist, dentist, optometrist, and podiatrist, and discharge planning as appropriate. A licensed nurse is scheduled on duty for each shift to supervise the quality of care, administer medications, and perform treatments. Nursing assistants and trained staff help with personal care needs such as whirlpool bathing, showers, oral cares, dressing, grooming, therapy exercises, and assistance with eating.

How do I apply for admission to Linn Manor? What are the steps in the process?
What financial information does Linn Manor request?
Linn Manor asks if you have a private source of funds, such as nursing home insurance and/or personal funds, that will pay for nursing home care or if you are eligible for Medicare or Medicaid.
Once I am on the waiting list, when will I be admitted?
Generally, Linn Manor admits applicants on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the date we receive a completed application. However, if the number of beds occupied by Medicaid recipients is high compared to our internal standards, we reserve the right to admit a private pay resident ahead of others who may be on the list.
Other exceptions include:
How long will it take before I am admitted?
It is difficult or impossible to know when you will be offered a bed. It will depend on how many persons are ahead of you on the waiting list and how often beds become available. Linn Manor will inform you of your place on the waiting list whenever you or your representative requests such information.
