HOW DO I PAY FOR MY CARE? There are several options to pay for care. For Short Term Rehab and Long Term Care, you can pay a private daily rate if you have private funds. We accept most long term care insurances which pay for your room and board either partially or in-full. We also accept Medicaid and if you have had a three day, inpatient hospital stay, Medicare will pay for your stay up to 100 days.


CAN I KEEP MY OWN PHYSICIAN? Unfortunately, no.  You cannot keep your own physician. Mary Wade is proud to work with exceptional physicians from The West Haven Medical Group and those physicians.  However, you must keep any specialty doctor such as your cardiologist, orthopedist, or neurologists, etc.


WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE DAILY RATE? The daily rate includes room and board, housekeeping, laundry, recreation, and dietary services. Medications and treatments, MD visits, oxygen and mental health services are billed to your insurance first and any co-pays are your responsibility. For Medicaid residents all services are billed to Title-19.


IS THERE A WAITING LIST FOR LONG TERM CARE? Mary Wade has a waiting list for long term care. Once an application is received your loved one will be placed on our waiting list. Phone calls are made periodically to keep the list current. Your loved one’s name will not be removed from the waiting list without your consent and followed by a letter or email for verification.


IS THERE A WAITING LIST FOR SHORT TERM REHABILITATION? There is not a waiting list for this service. Please call Rosanne Mondrone, Director of Community Relations directly at (203) 672-7809 to inquire about availability.


ARE THERE PRIVATE ROOMS AVAILABLE? We have a select number of private rooms available in our Short Term Rehab as well as in our Long Term Care floor.  The majority of our accommodations are double rooms with ample privacy for each roommate.
