Glenmeadow’s criteria for admission to the independent and assisted living apartments are based on age, health, and financial ability to pay for services.

For both independent and assisted living, a prospective resident, or their spouse, must be at least sixty-two years of age, and be able to demonstrate the ability to pay the required fees comfortably and for their life expectancy. Other criteria vary as follows:

Independent Living
Residents must demonstrate an ability to live independently. Prospective residents must complete and return an application and medical form prior to final acceptance for tenancy.

Assisted Living
Glenmeadow assesses each resident’s ability to perform activities of daily living, along with their physical and mental status. These competencies are considered when making resident placement decisions at the time of occupancy and throughout the period of residency. In compliance with Massachusetts regulations, Glenmeadow cannot admit persons to assisted living who have acute medical conditions, unmanageable incontinence, advanced stages of cognitive impairments or behavioral problems that present a danger to the resident or others, are in need of skilled nursing care, or require ongoing two person transfer. Prospective residents must complete and return an application and medical form, prior to a scheduled assessment, which will be conducted by our Director of Health Services. A decision regarding final acceptance will be made following the assessment.
