The Application Process


1. Complete and return an Application for Housing and all attachments (Application Attachment, Resident Statement, Sponsor Statement, Waiting List Policy, Consent for the Release of Information, DSS Form  W-1487).  Be sure to include copies of your Social Security card, birth certificate, and your Social Security Award Letter (if you don’t have a copy, you can request one from the Social Security Administration at  1-800-772-1213).  You can drop off or mail your application materials to Smithfield Gardens Assisted Living, 26 Smith Street, Seymour, CT 06483.

2. Once we receive your completed application and determine if it appears to be eligible, we will place your application on our waiting list.

3. When an apartment becomes available, we will contact you to come in for an interview appointment  during which you will sign verification forms for us to verify the information shown on your application.  At the same time, we will make a referral to the Department of Social Services (DSS) for the CHCPE, and  a    representative of DSS will contact you to schedule an in-home assessment.

4. Please allow four to five weeks after the interview for verification processing and for DSS to complete their assessment and any necessary follow-up.  This is a good time to visit your physician and have our medical form completed (this form will be given to you during your interview appointment).

5. Once your application has been verified, we will contact you to schedule a meeting with the nursing supervisor at Smithfield Gardens, so we can discuss your individual needs and establish a preliminary care plan for you.

6. Once your application is approved, we will work with you to schedule a move-in date.
