Description of St. Luke's Home
The mission of St. Luke's Home is to provide elderly women, men, and couples of limited financial means, high-quality care in an environment respectful of the residents' rights and the regulatory guidelines. We do have admissions financial criteria: a single applicant may have income up to, but not exceeding, $25,380 annually, and an applicant couple may have income up to, but not exceeding, $29,040 annually. Applicants may have assets; however, any interest or dividend income earned is factored into the annual income.
Residents must meet the criteria for services at the supervisory care level, which includes the following: may have the need for general supervision only, may need assistance with self-administration of prescribed medications, are aware of their surroundings, able to perform functions of daily living, able to intervene on their own behalf in a crisis, able to ambulate with minimal aid, such as with a cane or walker, and be at least 55 years of age.
