CARE Assessment

The CARE assessment meets the federal Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) admission requirement for Medicaid-certified nursing facilities. It applies to all residents, regardless of payment source. The purpose of PASRR is to screen for mental illness, mental retardation, and related conditions to determine if long-term community placement is appropriate.To order a CARE Assessment, please contact the Johnson County Area Agency on Aging.
