Dear Residents and Family Members:
We wanted to provide you an update on what is going on in our community related to COVID-19.
We have recently learned that another one of our employees has tested positive for the virus after being exposed, we believe, outside of our community (the previous positive employee was July 4th). This individual has not been in the building since July 26, 2020, and the employee was asymptomatic when last at work. When the staff member was in the building, all appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) was used and good social distance was practiced when not providing care. Read more
Dear Residents, Family and Friends:
On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
