You will need to complete an admission application if you wish to be considered for admission. You may download a copy of our application by clicking on the document icon or obtain one from the Social Service Department. The application can be filled out and submitted by email, mail, or you can drop it off at the Home. If you open the application in Adobe it will be easier to complete rather than doing it through the browser window it opens in. You will need Adobe Reader to complete the application.
Upon Entering Your New Home
When you arrive at the Apostolic Christian Home of Eureka, someone from Social Services will meet you and escort you to your new room. A nurse will complete a physical assessment and make sure that we have all needed medical information for you. You or your Power of Attorney will meet with the Social Service Director or Assistant and complete the admission paperwork. You may receive visits from various individuals depending on your needs including therapy, activity and dietary staff. We want to learn as much as possible about you so that we can meet your needs and make you feel as at home as possible!
