We promise to love and care for your family as we do our own.
Because we care. Because we take our responsibilities seriously.
Because our residents are family… We are working continually to sustain a COVID-safe environment. We are complying with the latest recommendations and requirements issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local Department of Health. Read further below on our safety measures we are taking now; subject to change pursuant to latest guidelines.
- We monitor team members for fever and symptoms of illness.
- A team member who exhibits symptoms leaves our community immediately and resumes working on-premises only when all CDC return-to-work guidelines are met.
- Team Members will not be required to wear procedural masks routinely, regardless of vaccination status, unless there are positive case(s) in the community. If there are positive case(s) in the community, team members in that neighborhood may be required to wear masks.
- Team members providing care to a resident that has tested positive for COID 19 must follow airborne infection control precautions, which includes the use of an N95 respirator mask, gloves, gowns, and protective eyewear.
- Team members are equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE), such as protective face shields, N95 or surgical masks, isolation gowns, and gloves.
- Team members wash hands and use hand sanitizer routinely throughout their shift.
- Residents wear masks when needed.
- We remind residents to wash and sanitize their hands throughout the day and give assistance, if needed.
- All new residents must be fully vaccinated prior to move in and have a negative COVID test within 72 hours prior to move in. New residents will be tested again five (5) days post move-in.
- All residents will be subject to testing if symptomatic.
- All visitors will be screened upon entry to the community. We will ask any visitor with signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or the flu to postpone their visit. We ask that visits or outings be postponed for at least 10 days if you have tested positive for COVID, RSV or the Flu, or if you have been in contact with someone who is unwell. We are asking residents to stay in their rooms if they have symptoms of any kind, including cold-like or gastro-intestinal symptoms. Visitors will no longer need to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.
- For in room visits, masking is optional but is highly recommended for the safety and well-being of our residents.
- Visiting hours are from 9am-5pm, seven days a week.
- Compassionate care and end of life visits will continue to follow community protocols and the latest CDC guidance.
- We also offer our residents and their families virtual connection with video chat, phone calls, and FaceTime sessions.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
- We stock and regularly monitor an inventory of protective masks, face shields, gloves and gowns for use by team members and residents.
