We are thrilled to soon be able to offer more indoor visit options for residents and families in our assisted living and skilled nursing communities!
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidance yesterday that will finally allow our communities to safely expand visitation options as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The guidance states that communities offering skilled nursing should allow responsible indoor visitations at all times for all residents regardless of vaccinations status. While CMS does not regulate assisted living, we’ve seen state health departments use the same guidance for assisted living neighborhoods and we anticipate the same with this announcement. CMS and CDC did outline a few conditions, to read more click here.
Before we can begin following this guidance, we must receive further direction from each of the six states that we operate in, Colorado, Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve had to follow state guidance first and then federal guidance because of the regulatory environment.
We know residents and families are anxious, we are too! We are already preparing for more visitations and as soon as we get the green light from each state, we will share with our residents and families how, and when visits can be accommodated.
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."
