On this page (attached) you will find the application for admission to Van Rensselaer Manor.  After you submit the completed application with all the required information (please see page 2), the Admissions team will review it and determine if the applicant is appropriate for the facility. 

If the applicant is appropriate, admissions staff will notify the applicant (or designated representative) when beds become available. Important points to remember:
