At the present time, we may welcome visitors into our home. However, not all of our residents are vaccinated. Additionally, we know that even vaccinated people can still get COVID, especially the variant viruses that are now so widespread. While many restrictions have been lightened, we are still obliged by the Department of Health to follow several precautions to keep our residents safe.
First, visitors must stay at least 6 feet away from all residents except the one they are visiting. Visitors must stay in designated visiting areas and may not sit or linger in public spaces where residents gather. Visits may only occur in resident rooms if the person you are visiting has a private room (or if the roommate is not present). Otherwise, please ask staff to direct you to one of our designated visiting areas.
Second, visitors must wear face masks while moving through the facility, and during their visit if either they or the person they are visiting is not fully vaccinated. Please complete our COVID screening form and use hand sanitizer upon arrival and as needed. Please DO NOT VISIT if you have COVID (even if you have no symptoms), have a fever, are feeling ill, or have been in contact with anyone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19. Our Grandfriends are counting on you to help keep them safe and healthy.
Third, we are still required to stop visitation if we have an outbreak of COVID in the Home. During outbreak times, only virtual and window visits are allowed. We understand the importance your visits hold for our residents. Please help us to keep visiting open by staying home if you are sick and by following our COVID safety rules when you are here. Thank you!
During indoor visitation, facilities shouldDepartment of Health and Human Services / CMS
limit visitor movement in the facility. For
example, visitors should not walk around
different halls of the facility. Rather, they should go
directly to the resident’s room or
designated visitation area.
Visits for residents who share a room
should not be conducted in the resident’s room, if possible.
As always, our prayers are with you and all your loved ones for safety, good health, and countless blessings.
