Become a Patient
Both long-term care and post-acute care are offered at Budd Terrace at Wesley Woods. Long-term care helps in daily living activities and socialization while post-acute care aids in rehabilitation following a patient’s surgery or hospitalization. Post-acute care provides constant monitoring from our team of geriatric-certified physicians, nurses, and rehabilitation specialists.
Individuals should ask their physician or hospital case manager to fax recent medical records to the Admissions Office at 404-728-6285 or call 404-728-6500 for more information. If the patient/resident has not been seen by a physician within the past 30 days, it may be necessary to schedule an appointment before admission. After staff and physicians have reviewed your medical records and application, an admissions representative will contact you with a recommendation and, if the application is successful, date and time when the new patient/resident may be admitted.
Preparing for Admission
Upon admission, the patient/resident or family member/other responsible people should come to the Admissions Office, located on the first floor of the facility, where an Admissions Counselor will assist with the sign-in process. Patients and residents should bring:
- Insurance Verification/Identification Cards: (including Medicare and any supplemental insurance coverage).
- Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care: A Living Will identifies patient wishes regarding end-of-life care in the event of debilitating health situations.

This document is not required, but Budd Terrace patients/residents are strongly encouraged to consider these issues.
- A Check for the First Billing Statement: If a patient/resident or family member will be paying for facility charges. This initial billing statement will be prorated at the daily private-pay rate for the number of days remaining in the current month. If the patient/resident is admitted after the 25th day of the current month, the initial billing statement will include the remaining days in the current month, plus the charges for the next month.
- Power of Attorney: This legal document gives another responsible individual the right to conduct the patient’s/resident/s personal business affairs in the event the patient/resident is unable to do so. This is not required, but Budd Terrace patients/residents are strongly encouraged to consider these issues.
- Information Needed by Medical and Nursing Staff: If a patient/resident is admitted to Budd Terrace directly from home, assisted living facility, or personal care home, he/she may bring a pharmacy printout of all current medications or simply bring all current medication containers.
