  • The patient has a caregiver, over 18 years of age, who has agreed to stay for the duration of treatment.
  • The patient and caregiver have a permanent residence and will supply their identification card or other proof of residence.
  • If the caregiver should change over the stay, all caregivers and guests are asked to pre-register at the front desk.
  • Children under the age of 12 are not permitted to stay overnight or reside in the Pavilion.  Children under the age of 12 may visit during the day, with all visits limited to the first floor living room only. 
  • The patient is able to care for themselves, evacuate the premises in case of an emergency, and prepare meals (or do so with assistance from their caregiver).
  • The patient and caregiver agree to check in no sooner than one day before the start of treatment and will check out no later than 24 hours following completion of treatment.
  • At times the patient and caregiver may return to their home for shorts visits up to three nights while keeping their room.
