Sometimes one of us is faced with a desperate situation: a young family with a child turns out by chance in a one-room apartment with an elderly distant relative. An objective way out of this situation is to arrange an elderly person in a boarding school or nursing home.
The procedure for entering a nursing home is as follows. First, a person who wants to get into this social institution submits an application to the district department of social protection of the population. There he receives two documents to fill out - social and medical forms. The social form is filled out only when the medical one is ready.
The difficulty is that an elderly person needs to pass numerous tests, and then obtain a visa at the regional sanitary and epidemiological station with a mark that he has no infectious diseases. You will also need a fluorogram and a double vaccination against diphtheria. You will definitely need to go through specialists: a neuropathologist, therapist, oncologist, dermatovenerologist, phthisiatrician and psychiatrist. Women will have to visit an additional gynecological oncologist.
Please note that some test results and vaccinations have a period during which they are accepted for consideration. If a call to a nursing home is postponed for some reason, visits to specialists, unfortunately, will have to be repeated, which is extremely inconvenient, given the age of a person who needs social protection. The main inconsistency is that the notice with the invitation to the nursing home is valid for ten days, and some tests may not be ready until a week later.
In addition to a medical examination, an elderly person will need to visit a housing office and a passport office to obtain certificates. You cannot avoid contacting the Pension Calculation Center, since the pension will need to be transferred to a nursing home.
When all the bureaucratic instances have been passed, a person can go to a new place of residence. Nursing homes can have their own unwritten rules. As a rule, residents of a nursing home are provided with everything they need on the spot. Personal clothing is discouraged, but not prohibited. It is recommended to take only basic necessities with you: a mug, a spoon, a bathrobe, slippers.
