Long Term Care Consultation
Long-Term Care Consultation is the
title that has been given to the Preadmission Screening (PAS)
program. It is the first step you must take if you would like to
move from a nursing home or other institution in Minnesota.
The purpose of LTCC is to help
persons become aware of community-based options and to assist
individuals to make an informed choice about where they want to
live. During a face-to-face visit with a social worker or nurse,
individuals will be able to discuss what they want and receive
assistance if they choose to stay in, or move to, the community.
This can include Relocation Service Coordination.
Center for Independent Living will participate on the
long-term care consultation team along with the county social
worker and public health nurse if asked. This is a really
good idea since the legislation requires that the county let the
person who wants to leave the institution know what transition
services are available. Centers for Independent Living
across Minnesota will contract with counties to provide nursing
home relocation coordination services.
