How does one pay for the program?
Fees for participation are determined by a sliding scale based upon each family’s income.
- Daily rate is $62
- Range from family monthly income : $400 = $16; $2500+ = $62
- Live Oak is a non-profit agency and no one is denied enrollment due to inability to pay fees
- We invite participants for a trial run (stay for part of the day)
- We evaluate the client to see if they are able to interact well with peers
- We assist non-ambulatory clients to ensure they are able to stand with a little help in restrooms
As part of enrollment, we evaluate and discuss a written service agreement package, including topics such as demographics, medical issues, functional assessment, food (ADCFP), respect, transportation, annual appraisal.
