Rates & Levels of Care

Exceptional Care, Tailored to Your Needs

We offer four levels of care at Wentworth Home, all of which can be tailored to the resident’s needs.

Level of Care Category 6

A resident requiring this level of care would only remain in this category for a short-period of time, either before returning to a lower level of care, or for the duration of end-of-life care. Some examples of why a resident would be moved into this category are as follows:
  • They’re no longer able to engage in any tasks, such as feeding, toileting, or bathing.
  • They have limited ability to communicate.
  • A staff member needs to assist with all transfers, walking, turning, and/or repositioning.
  • Additional assistance is needed from hospice, requiring coordination of services between Wentworth Home and the hospice provider.
  • Additional attention is needed beyond the staff time allotted for the other levels of care.
  • The resident has a Medical Complexity Rating of 1-3.

Additional Fees

One-Time Admission Fee | $1,500

All residents are charged a one-time, non-refundable admission fee before moving in.

Medication Administration Fee | $235 per month

This fee is charged monthly for our nurses to administer medications from any pharmacy other than our contract pharmacy: Northeast Pharmacy Services. Regulations require that all medications be stored in their original containers received from the pharmacy, so this fee covers nurse time to open each individual container at the time of administration. This fee will only apply if a resident chooses to use a mail-away service or a pharmacy other than our contract pharmacy

Medical Complexity Fees | Assigned Accordingly

For Assisted Care, Assisted Enhanced Care, and Added Care, the pricing is dependent upon the resident having a Medical Complexity Rating of 0, as determined by the Assessment Team. If a resident’s Medical Complexity Rating reaches 1-3, additional fees will be assigned accordingly until medical needs decrease.
