The admissions process to Jeanne Jugan Center usually begins with a conversation with the Director of Social Services and Admissions, or one of the Little Sisters, during which we will seek to ascertain the following:

  • The hopes and expectations of the individual and his/her family regarding placement in a long-term care facility;
  • His or her current living situation;
  • The age and financial eligibility of the prospective Resident;
  • Any current needs and health concerns;

The purpose of these questions is to begin to discern if the individual’s needs and desires would be met through the services of Jeanne Jugan Center. If this seems to be the case, we will arrange an interview at Jeanne Jugan Center with the individual or family member, or send an application.

You should know that we do not generally admit directly into the skilled nursing unit. These rooms are usually reserved for Residents in the assisted living or apartment areas who require a higher level of care due to the onset of illness or disability.

If we feel that we are not able to meet a prospective applicant’s needs, we will be happy to suggest other facilities and resources in the community which may be helpful.
