We are now implementing new federal directives aimed at stopping the spread of COVID-19 in senior living communities. The Centers for Medicare/Medicare Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have determined that if a skilled nursing community, assisted living community, or memory support community is in a county or operates in a county that is adjacent to a county that has had a positive case of COVID-19, we MUST limit visitors.
What does this mean for Cappella Living Solutions and our communities? We are limiting visits to our communities that fall within those guidelines specifically for residents in skilled nursing, assisted living or memory support neighborhoods. Those residents will be allowed visitors for essential needs only, such as supportive care and family visit in end-of-life situations. Visits must be brief. All visitors will complete our screening protocol, which includes a few questions about their current health, and they will need to wash their hands to enter.
We know this can be discouraging for family members. However, we know this is the only proven way to stop the spread of the virus. In the meantime, we are happy to forward a note or card to a resident and will help them connect with loved ones via technology like Skype or FaceTime.
Our team is committed to doing all that we can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone who lives and works in the community.
We own and manage senior living communities alongside our parent company, Christian Living Communities.
"When we moved to Holly Creek we thought about what is visible, such as interiors, apartment layout, dining areas, which are all very nice but after living here for a year we have discovered what is most important is the people that live here and employees, who are all so considerate and kind who are at the HEART of Holly Creek. They make Holly Creek a special place in which to live."
