Admissions FAQ
Magnolia Estates Nursing Home

Can my loved one be eligible for any financial assistance?

Yes, we will assist in the application for Long Term Care Medicaid.

Do I need an appointment to come in and see the facility?

No, an appointment is not necessary. Feel free to come by anytime Monday thru Friday, during usual work hours. The Social Worker is available for tours and to answer any questions.

How do you go about placing someone in a nursing home?

First, tour the facilities of your choice. Second, contact our admissions coordinator by calling 337-824-2466. We understand that the decision to place a family member in a nursing facility may be difficult. Therefore, we will do everything we are capable of doing to help make this transition easier for everyone involved.

How much does it cost to place my loved one in a nursing home?

We will be happy to discuss the financial aspects of nursing facility placement. By doing so, we can determine eligibility for Medicaid assistance. Monthly rates vary for nursing facilities. The best option is to contact the facility of your choice to discuss this. Call the business office at 337-824-2466. Click here for a list of nursing facilities affiliated with CCI.

How much money will I have to pay if I get financial assistance?

Monthly liability will be calculated by the sum of all income minus $38.00, which is refunded to the resident monthly. Medicaid also allows for health insurance premiums to be deducted before the monthly liability calculation.

What am I allowed to bring into the facility?

We encourage you to bring items to make their rooms feel like home. If residents have a favorite recliner, a small refrigerator, and family portraits, we encourage residents to bring these items with them. Click here for a list of nursing facilities affiliated with CCI.
