The controlled environment of our retirement and supportive living community is a safe place to live during the coronavirus outbreak.
The wellbeing of residents is our highest priority. We have put precautions and conditions in place that allow us to proceed with accepting new residents when possible.
SAGELIFE RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS
Older adults are at greater risk for serious complications from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We are intently focused on controlling infection in our communities safe and have reviewed and expanded upon our tiered Heightened Infection Control Policy and Procedures.
- Effective March 13 and in effect until further notice, our communities are restricted from visitation, including family members.
- Our staff, already trained around infection prevention, received additional training on Standard Precautions/Infection Control and Infectious Diseases – Prevention and Spread of GI, Viral, and Respiratory Outbreaks and awareness of symptoms in themselves, residents, and visitors.
- Exceptions to the visitor restriction are: medical and emergency response personnel and hospice caregivers and family members of residents receiving end of life care. These visitors will be subject to the enhanced screening protocol outlined below.
- We continue to follow stringent and frequent sanitization procedures using hospital grade disinfectant on all surfaces in the community.
- We are using the CDC’s Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Preparedness Checklist for Nursing Homes and other Long-Term Care Settings.
- We have identified and prepared Special Circumstances Areas in each community for isolation purposes.
- Staff and residents are screened daily for temperature and symptoms.
These are stressful times and being unable to spend time with loved ones can add stress. We are facilitating FaceTime or Skype calls so that you can keep in touch with family members face-to-face. Just call your community for more information about organizing calls.
We will keep residents, families, and staff informed during this evolving situation. We understand the hardship of not being able to visit your loved one and will lift this restriction as soon as it is safely possible.
If you have specific questions, please contact the Executive Director or General Manager of your community for more information.
