We apologize for the lack of updates. We will do our best to update at least twice weekly.

 

We still have NO cases of Covid 19 in the facility.

 

We still have NO employees diagnosed with Covid 19.

We continue to monitor our residents and our staff regularly. What does that mean? Well for our residents: We are taking temps and O2 levels every 8 hours. Since this virus is an attack on a person's respiratory system we are checking  O2 levels as a drop in levels may be a sign of infection. We have taken one half of the first floor and have made the rooms isolation rooms. Any new admissions will be isolated for 14 days in one of these rooms. Any resident who leaves the facility is placed in an isolation room upon return for 14 days. If any resident leaves their perspective unit they must wear a mask. We are trying our best to maintain social distancing. However, given that some of our resident have dementia this is, at times,is difficult to enforce.

 How we monitor our employees: upon arriving to the facility each employee must be screened. This screening includes a questionnaire of possible symptoms, a temperature check, and an O2 level taken. Any employee working a double must report to the reception area for a recheck prior to the second shift worked. 

We promise you we are doing all we can to keep your loved ones safe!! THIS IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY!!!

Window visits continue, as well as video calls, please call for an appointment.
