Please take note of our guest rules.
We appreciate your cooperation to ensure that all guests have a safe and comfortable environment during their time of need.
Violation of the Guest Rules will result in the loss of apartment privileges, and guests may be asked to leave.
- Each patient must be accompanied by a caregiver for the entire length of stay. A caregiver must be present when checking into the apartment. It is expected that the caregiver will be with the patient most of the day and all night while the patient is at the apartments. If a new caregiver comes to be with the patient, he or she must sign in at the office, have photo ID copied and read the Guest Rules. Copies of photo IDs of the patient and caregivers will be kept on file in the office and shredded when they check out of the apartment.

Smoking is only permitted on the fourth floor walkway between the east and west apartment buildings. Extinguished smoking materials must be properly disposed of in the containers provided. Do not empty car ashtrays in the parking lots.
- Guests may be absent from their apartment for not more than three consecutive nights (not including time spent in hospital with patient) without giving up the apartment. Guests must inform the office in writing when both the patient and caregiver will be gone overnight, regardless of the reason. This can be done by entering the event in the logbook for guest absences, found in the community room.
