We understand this is a difficult time to ask residents and families to continue to social distance with Mother’s day this weekend. Thank you for helping us keep residents and staff safe and healthy by preventing the spread of Covid-19. The effect of a virus like this in our community would be devastating and we are doing everything we can to keep it out, we just ask that families do everything they can as well. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
Our dietary team is busy preparing a wonderful surprise for residents on Sunday. Here are some additional ideas of how to make the day special for your loved one:
While our no-visitation restrictions* will still be in place on Sunday for the safety of our residents and staff, we welcome deliveries (such as flowers) and packages (gifts, cards).
Scheduling Video Chats:
We encourage you to set up a video chat, zoom, facetime, etc. with your loved one in place of in person visit.
We will ensure it is a special day for our special residents with a special delivery in the morning.
*Even with the state’s decision to open businesses by a certain date, we will evaluate the risk level at our campuses at that time. We would follow the restrictions outlined by the Department of Health’s (DOH) and Dept. of Human Services for long-term care facilities. And when we consider it safe to roll back current restrictions, we will have a reconditioning plan for our residents to continue to be safe even as more socialization and activities are re-introduced.
In the meantime, our temporary no-visitation policy is still in place and enforced per the President and Governor’s order and our safety precautions. We ask all families to refrain from visiting the campus and attempting to see their loved ones. While it may seem safe and harmless, it still poses a risk…as well as upsets other residents who are honoring the restrictions. So please, respect our policies and do not visit until our policies have changed which we will keep you apprised.
*The Care Center is able to set up window visits upon request.*
