Talking To Your Loved Ones
The first step in the admission process, once you’ve had an initial visit, is to arrange a full on-site interview and tour with our case manager or executive director. Visitors will have a chance to walk the halls and view the rooms and common areas to get a true feel for the residence.
After the tour and interview – and assuming all agree that Vassar-Warner Home would be an ideal fit—our case manager or executive director will guide you through the admission process and help choose a move-in date. We encourage everyone to ask any unanswered questions at any point along the way. Choosing a place to live for you or a loved one can be daunting, but the staff at Vassar-Warner Home is here to help and make the transition as smooth as possible.
To arrange a full on-site interview and tour, contact Executive Director, Ericka Von Salews by phone at 845-454-3754 extension 11 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
