    Eligibility
    Highlights
    Our target population consists of those elderly persons who need long term care, but who lack the financial resources to obtain the service that a Home such as ours offers. Saint Mary’s Home located on the North side of Chicago is licensed by the state of Illinois as an Intermediate Care Nursing Facility. All of our beds are Medicaid certified. We provide each resident with a private room and half bath. Three nourishing meals and snacks are available in our community dining rooms. Assistance with personal care is provided (for example, bathing, dressing, and personal hygiene). A full range of activity programs is available. After an initial evaluation for physical therapy and occupational therapy, follow up services can be provided. Social services are offered on an as needed basis. It should be noted that we are not a Medicare certified facility. Because we are an “open” facility, we are unable to admit individuals who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or mental illness. In order for an individual to make an informed decision about entry, our admission procedure includes an in-person interview, after which a visit to the Home of approximately one week is scheduled.
    All genders welcome
