  • I have done a tour, what are the next steps?
    The next step after a tour is putting a deposit on a room. A $500 non-refundable deposit holds the room for 30 days and goes towards the first month’s pro-rated rent. Our nurses then do an evaluation with the potential Resident to make sure they meet the criteria to live at the Elizabeth Brewster House. An appointment would be made with the primary care Physical to fill out a medical evaluation. Once these steps are completed, you would set up an appointment to do admission paperwork and begin the move in process.

    Many people prefer to bring their own furniture upon moving in. However, we can furnish rooms for an extra $100 per month.
