As we continue to monitor the latest news and developments on the coronavirus (COVID-19), all those affiliated with the AgeWell Living family should have confidence we are taking necessary precautions to keep them and their loved ones safe and informed.
We have distributed an internal policy guide to leadership at our seven communities that aligns with prevention guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Additionally, we continue to monitor all communication from local, state and federal health authorities to ensure our policies reflect the latest information available. These prevention efforts include, but are not limited to:
- Limiting visitors at our communities.
- Regular meetings with team members and residents to provide updates on prevention procedures.
- Ongoing infection control training for all direct care staff.
- Increased sanitization of common areas and support good hygiene through touchless hand sanitizer stations throughout communities.
Our sole focus is to mitigate any risk or exposure to our communities, and ensure our seven locations are fully prepared should an outbreak impact them or the surrounding area. That said, while regular routines may have to shift for a period of time, we remain committed to delivering the same level of care and professionalism to the residents and families we serve.
