Move-In VS Start-of-Care

Two different 'Start' dates will appear on the Resident Profile and related reporting related to resident care and services.

Move-In Date is the date of physical move-in to the facility and is entered by resident staff.  

Start of Care Date is the date services were first provided to this resident. This date is not entered, but is instead automatically determined by the date this resident resident first received home care services ('hands on' nursing services).  Services specified as "housing services" such as housekeeping and laundry do not initiate a start of care date.  

  • Move-In and Start of Care Dates may be the same: resident moved in and started cares immediately
  • Move-In and Start of Care Dates may be different: Resident moved in as an Independent Living resident or began paying rent on one day, started receiving cares on a later day
  • A resident may have a Move-In Date and Not have Start Of Care date:  resident moved in as an Independent Living resident or began paying rent on one day, and has not started receiving services yet.
  • Move-In date may appear with a different name custom to your organization, e.g. "Intake Date."

What Displays on the Resident Profile Screen:

If a resident has or had services a Start of Care date will appear.
If the resident has not started receiving healthcare services yet, there will be no start of care date displayed.
