What steps are needed before admission?
Our admission process is made simple and easy with our helpful and friendly staff. We walk you through each step. We must perform a pre-admission residency assessment to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our residents and your loved ones.
From your primary physician, you will need to provide a signed History and Physical report that is no more than 30 days old and also current signed medication orders.
You must return a completed Application for Residency and you will need to provide copies of documentation (if applicable) regarding:
- Power of Attorney
- Living Wills
After each of these steps is completed, you will meet with our professional staff to complete the month lease agreement.
What type of payment is accepted?
We are a private pay residential community. We do not participate in Medicare or Medicaid programs, however long-term care insurance often pays for assisted-living. Please check with your insurance provider for more information. If you are a Veteran or the widow of a Veteran, you may be eligible to qualify for special assistance through the VA.
The Cottage of Spring Branch is licensed through the Texas Department of Aging & Disability Services (TXDADS) for Type-B Assisted-Living and Certified in Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care.
What items should I bring for my family member?
Once your family member is scheduled to move in, we provide an informative list of necessities which include certain items such as seasonal clothing, small keepsakes and family photos. Some of the additional essentials include medications and personal medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers or canes. Furniture is provided, but you are welcome to bring as much personal furniture as space permits.
