The Covington Ladies Home is a non-profit licensed Personal Care Home for women age 65 and older. We strive to provide the highest level of care to all of our residents. We do not discriminate in our services regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, handicap or source of payment. The Covington Ladies Home follows State regulations established for personal care facilities.
The Covington Ladies Home offers care and limited supervision for those individuals who are no longer capable of independent living but do not require full nursing service. Care is provided in a furnished private room but residents are encouraged to bring their own personal furnishings if desired. The monthly rate includes: 24 hour supervision, meals in the dining room, snacks, basic laundry service (dry cleaning, special care items, and extra large items excluded), weekly housecleaning service, weekly change of bed linens, assistance with bathing, supervision and administration of medication, regular nursing assessments and a full activities program. Personal Care residents at Covington Ladies Home must be able to walk to the dining room with only minimal staff guidance (a cane or a walker are just fine), be generally able to perform most activities of daily living and to care for their room and belongings. Ladies may not be incontinent.
The current monthly rate is $2400.00. Short-term respite care is available at $145.00 per day. Financial assistance is available for individuals with limited resources through the Commonwealth of Kentucky (State Supplement). The Home also offers sliding scale rent based on income. Rent is calculated on a per day rate for those moving in after the first of a month. There is no reimbursement of rent for those moving out before the end of the month unless required by law or unless pre-arranged with CLH. A room is considered rented until all personal items, including furniture, are removed from the room. We do not accept “donations” of used goods.
Residents may bring a television, radio, clock, pictures and other personal items, including their own furniture. No wicker of any kind is permitted. Safety concerns dictate that we do not permit residents to have electrical appliances, such as electric blankets, heating pads, curling irons, hot rollers, or any other appliance that creates heat. At the Home’s sole discretion, ladies may utilize a personal sized refrigerator. The resident or a family member may arrange for telephone and newspaper service. All residents are encouraged to participate in activities offered at the Covington Ladies Home. Medications, physician and podiatry services, most medical supplies, telephone service, newspaper delivery, dry cleaning services, and beautician services are not included in the daily rate and are billed by the provider. Ladies may not keep a personal vehicle at the Home.
The Covington Ladies Home is a 100% smoke free facility. We do not admit Ladies who smoke. All visitors must refrain from smoking while on Covington Ladies Home property.
A preadmission interview is required to determine eligibility for residency at Covington Ladies Home. Based upon room availability and the applicant’s healthcare needs, accommodations may be offered. An available room may be reserved by paying a deposit of $700.00. An applicant will forfeit $400 of the deposit if applicant fails to enter the facility within 15 days of being advised that a room is available. After that time a new deposit will be collected if the applicant is interested in securing a room.
An applicant must have a complete physical examination within 14 days prior to admission to the Home.
To facilitate and insure prompt and efficient care, the fulfillment of the resident’s financial and legal obligations, and the proper handling of properties if and when the resident becomes physically or mentally incapable of performing these tasks, the Covington Ladies Home requires that all residents appoint a Power of Attorney prior to admission. The prospective resident may use the form provided by the facility, which may be notarized by a Notary Public. If a Power of Attorney form has already been legally executed, a copy must be provided to the facility. While not required, residents have the option to execute advance directives such as a living will and appointment of a health care surrogate. Forms are available from the facility or may be provided by the resident.
