Masks now required at all times when visiting our life plan communities!

Before entering, please note that our masking policy has changed, effective September 3, due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in our county and surrounding areas. The positivity rates throughout our service area are near or above 10%, causing great concern about the continued spread of the virus and its variants.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are now requiring all family members, vendors, contractors and other visitors to wear a face mask at all times, regardless of vaccination status, when in any of our personal care/assisted living residences and skilled care centers. This includes private visits in resident rooms and assisted living apartments.

We will continue to monitor the positivity rates and adjust our visitation policy once we feel it is safe to do so. Thank you for helping us stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Terminology

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Terminology

  • CDC – Centers for Disease Control
  • CMS – Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
  • Cohorts are a group of individuals, i.e. residents who are infected with the same organism, i.e. coronavirus and whose care is confined to one area to prevent contact with other individuals, i.e.residents
  • COVID-19 is a disease caused by the novel coronavirus that causes respiratory illness in people and can spread from person-to-person (much like the flu or common cold) through the air by coughing or sneezing; through close personal contact, like touching or shaking hands; by touching an objector surface with the viruses on it; and occasionally, through fecal contamination.
  • Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
  • N95 Respirator is a respiratory protective device designed to achieve a very close facial fit and very efficient filtration of airborne particles. The edges of the respirator are designed to form a seal around the nose and mouth. Surgical N95 Respirators are commonly used in healthcare settings.The CDC does not recommend that the general public wear N95 respirators to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including coronavirus.
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE) is any type of specialized clothing, barrier product, or breathing device used to protect workers from serious injuries or illnesses while doing their jobs.These include gloves (vinyl, latex or nitrile); gowns; shoe and head covers; mask or respirators (N95respirator); and other face and eye protection (goggles or a face shield).
  • Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick. Quarantined people may or may not become sick; but separating them from those who were never exposed helps prevent the spread of the disease.
  • Stay at home/Shelter-in-place means to stay at home except for certain essential activities and work to provide life-sustaining business and government services.
