Admission and Referral


To refer yourself, a patient or a loved one to St. Joseph's Senior Renewal, simply call our office. Our staff will request some information and will promptly schedule an appointment. All initial screenings are free of charge. We work closely with referring health care professionals so that timely communications can take place with families, physicians, social services agencies, and others.

What happens when I call for help?


When you call for help, you will be scheduled for a confidential assessment by a qualified professional. This can take place at HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital in Breese, in the privacy of your own home, or in a health care facility.

This assessment will determine the appropriate level of care based on the presenting symptoms and their severity. If you can benefit from treatment, you will be admitted into St. Joseph's Senior Renewal program.

Will my insurance pay for treatment?


St. Joseph's Senior Wellness treatment is covered by most commercial insurance companies and Medicare, as well as many supplemental insurance plans.
