Wear Proper Protective Equipment at All Times
The health and safety of our residents and staff is the number one priority of our company. So, first and most importantly, our staff has had to be adaptive to meet all safety procedures, as recommended by the CDC and government officials. According to the CDC’s official considerations for preventing spread of COVID-19 in assisted living facilities, “Personnel should wear a facemask at all times while they are in the facility.” Our staff wear masks at all times as well as following other safety procedures depending on the situation and specific field of care that is being provided across our continuum of care.
Activities are a staple of assisted living, memory care, and long-term care living communities. However, with new social distancing guidelines, group activities have had to be paused and changed to one-on-one activities within the safety of the senior’s apartment. Officials have recommended to “modify or cancel group activities.” We have acted decisively at all times during this pandemic and moved quickly to update our activities from a group approach to a one-on-one style to ensure that the seniors remain engaged but in a safe way.
