What is the process for admission to Cedars programs?
When Cedars receives a referral or a request for services, a team of Cedars staff works to assess whether there is a match between the needs of the individual and the services available in Cedars programs. This assessment process includes, but is not limited to, a review of a referral packet, personal meetings with families and clients, and opportunities for families and clients to visit Cedars programs for tours. We often set up trial periods to make sure that the fit is a good one. If it is determined that our services will meet your needs we have systems in place that help us provide a smooth transition for your loved one.
Can Cedars provide services for people who live out of the area?
Yes. Cedars staff will guide you through the process of applying from your locality.
