Admission Guidelines and Application

1) Complete and submit an Admissions Application. 

Administrator of The Ridgewood or Vice President of Personal Care
St. Paul’s
339 East Jamestown Road
Greenville, PA 16125


2) Review by the admissions committee. 

Upon approval of the application, your name will be placed on the waiting list. It will remain on the list until you are called to move or you request removal of your name.


3) When an apartment is available, you will be called.

You can reserve and hold your apartment with a $350 refundable security deposit for 14 days. Apartments are available on a first-come, first served basis. An additional $400 deposit is required if you plan to bring your pet.

At this time you will have 14 days to move into the apartment. You may refuse the move one time before your name is moved to the bottom of the waiting list. If you accept the apartment, you must complete the application process as listed.


4) Once you are called to move, we will send a Medical Evaluation form. 

Your physician must complete this form for you. This is a standard form, which must be filled out for each resident. According to state law, it must be completed and signed by a physician within 60 days prior to admission.


5) Schedule a move-in meeting.

Schedule an appointment for an initial move-in meeting with a marketing representative or the administrator of The Ridgewood at (724) 588-7610. During your initial meeting you will schedule your Move-in Date, complete a preliminary needs assessment and review preliminary paperwork for your move.

The state requires St. Paul’s to complete a standardized screening instrument within 30 days prior to admission to The Ridgewood. This assessment reviews the resident’s medical, social and personal care needs to allow us to provide services appropriate for each resident.


6) Schedule a second appointment.

Schedule a second appointment to meet with the administrator or a designated person to complete admission papers.


7) Begin the move-in process.


Note - upon discharge the resident and/or family have 14 days to vacate the apartment.
