What is the Physician’s Assessment?
When a future resident has accepted an apartment, cottage or village home at BTV, then they must pass a Physician’s Assessment (PA). The Physician’s Assessment is conducted in two parts. A form is provided for the future resident’s medical doctor to fill out and return to Butterfield. Then the future resident will meet with a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) and Registered Nurse (RN) to determine that the future resident is living independently. This must be done within 90 days of signing the Life Care Contract.
