We are welcoming new residents to our communities, and have adapted our assessment and move-in process to keep new and current residents safe and healthy. Similarly, if current residents experience a short stay at a hospital or skilled nursing setting, we are welcoming them back home. Here's some reasons why we are still welcoming new residents:
- Even before the pandemic, family caregivers have been identified as being at higher risk for health concerns. Moving a loved one to senior living can improve the safety for seniors and family members alike.
- Seniors who find themselves isolated at home may have minimal support. Daily tasks like errands and grocery shopping may put them at unnecessary risk of exposure.
- The reality of social distancing can translate into fewer check-ins from neighbors or visitors who aren't taking proper safety precautions. Residents find comfort in having 24-hour access to a trained care team who are regularly screened for coronavirus symptoms.
- Senior living providers play a crucial role in alleviating the strain on the stressed healthcare system by continuing to welcome new residents.
- Our community provides an engaging environment for seniors to live safely and independently with purpose, and surrounded by support and care.
Our intention is to protect the well-being of both current and future residents. Throughout the entire move-in process, we will monitor our resources and capacity and provide transparent communication about our ability to welcome new residents.
