Sint Martin’s Home Nursing Home Care
Nursing Home Care
Nursing Home Care is for clients who are chronically ill or disabled. These clients have acquired a long term illness or disability and need long term care.
Nursing home care is divided in two sections:
Psycho-geriatric care: For clients who need care due to an illness of the brain, for example Alzheimer’s disease.
Somatic care: For clients who need care due to a physical illness or disability, for example after stroke or amputation. Clients need to have an ADL (Activities of Daily Living) score of 5 or lower to be eligible for admittance.
Documents required prior to admission for Nursing Home Care:
Copy of valid health insurance
Copy of SXM ID card /passport
A detailed census registration form
Letter from psychiatrist, confirming a psycho-geriatric illness (if applicable)
Medical history report from family doctor / medical specialist
These documents can be emailed or delivered to our Social Worker, Minerva Maccow via email:
Once all documents are submitted, the client’s name will then be placed on the waiting list.
The social worker and department manager will then conduct a home visit, where the client’s needs are assessed and ADL score taken. An AVBZ-care request is then filled in and submitted to the AVBZ Committee at SZV for approval.
Once approved and when a space becomes available for the client, the family will be called and an admission date is planned.
