We believe communication is an essential component of managing the COVID-19 crisis. As we continue to navigate this pandemic, our goal is to keep you informed about the measures we are taking to protect our residents and staff members.
Recoveries: We are grateful to report that the overwhelming majority of our residents and staff afflicted by the virus in the early months of this unprecedented healthcare crisis have fully recovered and are doing well. We are extremely proud of the work performed by our frontline healthcare workers and we are indebted to everyone who continues to go above and beyond to care for your families. Thank you for your continued expressions of support.
Testing: As previously communicated, our care center was among the first nursing homes in the State to request testing for all residents and staff. In recent weeks, more tests have become available to nursing homes and we have completed testing for 100% of residents and staff. We plan to conduct on-going point prevalence and serial testing for all residents and staff as conditions indicate. All prior infection prevention measures and medical management protocols remain in effect.
Infection Prevention: The following measures remain in effect until further notice.
In Memoriam: To honor the lives lost during this pandemic, we are planning to construct a garden memorial to venerate all members of our collective family who have been impacted. We anticipate this garden memorial to be completed in 2021. We invite families and staff to attend a memorial service when conditions allow for us to safely meet and heal together.
We offer our heartfelt thanks for your patience, prayers, support, and the confidence you have placed with us in caring for your loved one.
