The charges for nursing care and services provided by Gardenside depend upon the care needs of the resident. Our services are goal-oriented to restore each resident to his or her highest level of independence and comfort.
The rates at Gardenside are based on six levels of care that describe the types of care a resident may need. The six levels are determined through a state approved assessment evaluation that is updated at regular intervals to reflect changes a resident may experience. The evaluation reflects the amount of assistance and nursing care needed by the resident in the activities of daily living and other social and emotional areas.
Each resident is admitted at a Level 4 (either private or semi-private) room level until the assessment phase is completed. Rates are then adjusted as necessary, depending upon the care required. We do not require a down payment as in many other facilities.
Rates are $166 per day for a resident at Level 1 in a semi-private room, and go up to $278 per day for a resident at Level 6 in a semi-private room. A Level 4 (where a resident will be admitted at until assessment is fully completed) is $231 per day for a semi-private room. For a resident at a Level 1 in a private room, the charge ranges from $179 per day to $291 per day for resident in a private room at Level 6. A Level 4 is $244 per day for a private room.
In order to be admitted to Gardenside, you must have a primary care physician at Jefferson Community Health & Life Fairbury Clinic.
