We continue to follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and local health departments. In doing so, we are currently restricting all visitors and non-essential healthcare personnel to our community until further notice. Essential healthcare personnel include, but are not limited to, Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Home Health, and Hospice Providers. There are exceptions to this for end-of-life care or other situations pursuant to the guidance of public health officials. All healthcare visitors are subject to health screenings prior to being allowed inside the community. Additionally, group activities and community events have been cancelled until further notice and our Food and Beverage department is working to deliver meals to residents in the comfort of their apartments, all steps we are taking to practice social distancing within our community. It is essential that every resident feels connected daily during this time. We have implemented resident engagement programs to keep residents’ spirits up and keep them active and engaged with each other while still practicing our social distancing. We have established daily FaceTime calls to loved ones, activities that residents can participate in either from their apartment or apartment entryway inside the hallways, and our My Special Friend program in which each Assisted Living and Memory Care resident is paired with a community staff member that can provide assistance to the resident, do activities with the resident, and answer questions for the resident. We thank you for your continued patience as we work to keep our employees and your loved ones safe.
