With the spread of COVID-19, the safety, health and well-being of our residents and staff continues to be our top priority. We are closely following the recommendations of the CDC and are taking additional measures to protect our residents and teams. To date, none of our residents or employees have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Only essential visitors are allowed in the community. Essential visitors are defined as doctors, nurses, home health, hospice, private duty sitters and families of residents with serious declining health needs.
Anyone who enters the community, including staff, are screened for symptoms, including temperature. Essential visitors and staff must wear a surgical mask when in contact with residents. Staff is screened every 4 hours.
We are still accepting new residents, as some of our community members need our assistance more than ever. Click here for more information on virtual tours. New residents will be quarantined until receiving a negative test result (usually 48 hours upon move in).
- Residents are screened three times a day for a fever, shortness of breath and symptoms. Screening includes checking their pulse oximetry to monitor for a drop in oxygen concentration in the blood.
- Any resident that has a temperature or any signs and symptoms will be immediately isolated in their apartment and their primary care physician and family will be notified. We have the capability to test residents onsite for COVID-19. A physician’s order is required to test.
- Dining – all meals are served in apartments.
While self-quarantines and social distancing has changed the way we interact, our residents continue to engage with family, friends and fellow residents. Taco Tuesday, Ice Cream Wednesday, and Happy Hour brings life to each hallway as our residents participate from their doorways. Family members continue to visit from the window and video chat. We play bingo and experience “traveling” to various countries through trivia, snacks, and décor. Keeping our minds active is more important than ever during this time.
