Examples of interesting questions and comments we have received about The Continental at St. Joseph's:
Q: To whom it may concern, i was hoping that you were hiring. I work nearby, but, i need to supplement my income. I would love to change my employment and find a career that I love and to help people who need it. I have worked at Dora Barnes and i was a caregiver to a lady that had a stroke. I have experience, and a great loving heart, if you could contact me and set up an interview that would be appreciated. My name is Roxanne, and I looked at your website and loved it, hope to hear from someone in charge. sincerely - Roxanne
***We don't generally recommend that people look for positions by filling out a form on a website. A call is always advisable, and the best way to make a good first impression. - ALD
We are just starting to plan our elder living requirements (e.g., LTC insurance needs). To do so we are collecting current costs of nursing homes and assisted living housing in the Appanoose county area.
Please, advise us of your current rates for a married couple and rates for a single, neither of which has any medical needs at the time.
We are in our early 60s, retired, and living outside Iowa.
Thanks - Francis
Q: Do you offer short term stays such as 7-10 days? We look after my mother and will be gone on vacation this summer. She expressed interest in checking into the possibility. Thank you!- Sally
