Admissions from the hospital: Please let the social worker know you’re interested in The Commons on St. Anthony. They will also be able to do the PRI there.
Admissions from home: If your loved one is currently being cared for at home, the home care agency can complete the PRI and screen, and obtain the other information from their physician.
