Update From Administrator – July 22, 2020
July 22, 2020
Our team and I hope this email finds you safe and healthy.
Please remember that the outdoor visits must be pre-scheduled to ensure safe and healthy visits for you, the residents, and our staff. It also allows our team to ensure your loved one is available and ready for your visit to make the most of your time together. These visits require appropriate PPE (masks) to be worn at all times and a social distance of 6 feet between you and your loved ones for the entirety of the visit. If these restrictions pose issues for you please keep in mind that we continue to offer other visitation alternatives like Facetime, and window visits. You can schedule a visit by calling the Recreation department at 203-438-8226. Ext. 7047.
We are happy to report that we are currently COVID free! As mentioned on our last Town Hall call, we conducted another round of resident and staff testing this past week and all test results returned negative. We will conduct another round this week, to include any new admissions during the last week, and are hopeful that we will remain free of the virus. Some of our families have inquired about increasing time outdoors so we are actively trying to get people out of their rooms while maintaining the appropriate safety measures. As we continue to maintain a COVID-free status, we will hopefully be able to reduce restrictions under the guidance of the CDC and CT Department of Public Health.
As a reminder, our next “Town Hall” meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 23, 2020 at 3:00pm. We encourage any residents and family members to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about the care we are offering. Our commitment is to be as transparent as possible and work to address any issues that arise.
Thank you and please stay safe and healthy.
