Welcome letter for new admissions

The Manor at Blue Water Bay team looks forward to your arrival at our skilled nursing facility.  Whether you plan to be with us for a short-term rehabilitation or long-term stay, we want to take this opportunity to share some important information with you and your family. 

  • After your arrival, you (or your legal representative) will meet with our Admissions department to complete the admission documents.  In order for your legal representative to sign on your behalf, we must have copies of legal documents (Power of Attorney, Health Care Proxy, as well as other advanced directives to include Living Will and DNR).

  • Medications:  For our Rehabilitation patients, all prescriptions will be filled through our contract pharmacy. Please do not bring any medications with you.

  • Clothing Suggestions:

    1. Comfortable loose-fitting clothing to include night wear. Clothes should have your name in them.

    2. Socks, non-skid footwear.

    3. Personal items such glasses, hearing aids, and personal electronic devices.  Toiletries will be provided however; you may wish to bring any items of this nature that you prefer. 

  • Physician Coverage:  Several community physicians have privileges at our facility. You will be given a choice of a Physician during your stay. The Physician or their ARNP/PA will normally see you within 72 hours of your admission.

  • The day following your admission you will be screened by the Rehabilitation Department.  If you are admitted on a Saturday evening, our Rehabilitation Department will see you on Monday.  Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies will assess and develop a plan of care that best suits your goals.

  • Care Plan:  A care plan conference will be scheduled to review your progress around day 14 of your stay.  A letter notifying you of the date and time will be placed in your room.  If you would like a family member to attend and they are unable, a phone conference can be arranged.

  • Our clinical team meets daily Monday through Friday to discuss all short-term rehabilitation patients.  Each patient’s rehabilitation progress and all relative clinical issues that are present and may present a barrier to discharge are reviewed.

  • Discharge Planning:  As the patient gets closer to meeting their goals, the clinical team will confer with the patient and family to arrange a safe discharge. Our Social Services staff will coordinate with you and your family to arrange follow-up services as needed.

  • Meals are served daily at the following times:  Breakfast 7:15-8:15 a.m., Lunch 12:00-1:00 p.m., and Dinner 5:15-6:15 p.m.  While lunch and dinner offer two entrée options, special requests items are available and can be requested through your nursing staff. 

  • Visitation:  During the Covid pandemic, visitation is determined by several factors including active cases in the facility and the constantly changing rate in the community, along with Federal, State and local guidelines.  Please contact the facility to request the current visitation requirements. At this time, visitation is scheduled in advance.  The facility must coordinate visits due to recommendations that patients not have visitors in their room if they are in semi-private accommodations.  Our Activities Department is happy to assist with visitation requests. Virtual visits are available as well by use of Face-Time, Zoom, etc.  Requests may be made by contacting our Activities Departments at

  • Our facility leadership is committed to providing you with the care and services you need in a professional, caring, and supportive environment.  Please let us know of any questions or needs you may have. We appreciate the trust you have placed with us.  Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to care of your or your loved one.

Thank You!

Ann Drakes, Admission’s Director
