    Tell me about the placement process.

    After an assessment has been completed the Admissions Director will discuss the important aspects of the care needs, insurance coverage, and the services that will be provided. Your physician will complete the necessary paperwork to facilitate the placement. Transportation will be provided to the facility and an initial meeting of the care team will be scheduled. The patient and their family will help to shape the plan for care. Social services will help answer any additional questions. Each department will meet with the family and resident to determine their individual needs and preferences for medical cares, social activities, and dietary requirements.

    How do I pay for nursing home care?

    Chris Jensen accepts Medicare, Medical Assistance, many approved insurances and private payment. To qualify for some Medicare benefits, you must be hospitalized for at least 3 days and meet additional criteria. You will also need to have certain special services provided at the nursing facility. This could be a complex wound care, Physical therapy, Occupational therapy or Speech therapy services, IV medications, alternative nutritional support, a new chronic illness diagnosis or a need for self-care education. Medicare will pay for 100% of room and board, therapy and medications for the first 20 days. After 20 days there is a daily co-payment. Some insurance plans will pay your co-pay and others will not. Coverage may last up to 100 days.

    Medical Assistance is based on individual financial situation. An application may be completed through St. Louis County. Our social workers are happy to assist with this and other forms of insurance.

    How does Traction Control (TRAC) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) work and what are the benefits?

    Toyota’s Traction Control System continuously monitors the wheels whenever the vehicle accelerates. As soon as it detects that one or more drive wheels is starting to spin, it applies the brakes to the wheels and controls engine output to help the wheels better adhere to the road surface.

    Toyota’s VSC monitors your steering angle and the direction your vehicle is actually traveling and senses when your front or rear wheels begin to slip.

    When it senses this loss of traction or slip, VSC reduces engine power and applies braking to the individual wheels that need it to help correct the slip and keep the vehicle in the intended path.

    Do you need to replace hybrid batteries?

    Your hybrid battery pack should last for the lifetime of the vehicle, considered between 150 and 200 thousand miles, and may last even longer. Hybrid-related components for Toyota hybrid vehicles are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles. The HV battery may have longer coverage under emissions warranty. Plus, when it’s time to dispose of the battery, nickel metal hydride batteries are benign and can be fully recycled, posing no toxic hazards to the environment.
