Patrick Place is unable to manage IV’s, feeding tubes, intramuscular or subcutaneous injections (including insulin), individuals with difficult or behavioral needs. Residents must be able to be safely and comfortably cared for by staff and volunteers.

Understand we are staffed primarily by trained volunteers.

There are no financial requirements. Any effort of the resident/family to offset the cost of the care provided is appreciated, but there will be no billing for services.

Unfortunately, Patrick Place is unable to accept every person referred. Each referral is evaluated and it is determined if Patrick Place is able to provide the level of care needed. Priority is given to those individuals who are unable to receive safe care at home. We make every effort to provide care to those with the greatest need and the fewest options .

~Patrick Place admits and treats all patients without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, religion, marital status, age, sex, citizenship, sexual orientation, disability or source of payment.
