Every family eventually faces the difficult decision of what to do when a loved one is no longer able to live alone because they need personal care and assistance that no one in the family is in a position to provide. Carnegie East House welcomes older adults age 55 and over who need assistance with their activities of daily living and those who are simply tired of doing life’s daily chores, such as cooking, cleaning and laundry, and want to socialize with people of similar interests. If you are interested in joining our vibrant community, our five step admissions process is as follows:
Step 1: Contact Margaret Foley, our Marketing Director: The first step in becoming a resident is speaking with Margaret Foley, our Marketing Director. She can answer your questions about Carnegie East House and schedule a tour of our beautiful residence. Her telephone number is 646-438-8009.
Step 2: Tour Carnegie East House: We invite and encourage everyone who is interested in living at Carnegie East House and their families and caregivers to tour our residence. It’s important that our new residents feel comfortable about their decision to join our community. A tour is a wonderful way for everyone involved in the decision-making process to get to know us.
Step 3: Complete our “Paperwork”: All prospective residents must complete our Residency Application, Financial Application and Medical Evaluation. These documents provide us with detailed information so that we can get to know you better.
Step 4: In-Person Assessment:An important part of the admissions process is our in-person assessment. In order for us to assess whether we can meet your needs, all prospective residents meet with our executive director, licensed social worker and registered nurse. In-person assessments are performed every Wednesday and scheduled after we have received your completed Medical Evaluation.
Step 5: Sign Your Lease and Move-In: Once we have reviewed and approved your admissions documentation, you’re ready to sign your lease and make Carnegie East House your new home.
