Coronavirus Information and Precautions

This situation is evolving rapidly as new information becomes available.  We will update this page as quickly as possible if our policies and procedures change due to updates from CDC, CMS, CDPH and local health departments. 

We are currently creating plans to thoughtfully and carefully begin the process of getting to a post COVID-19 “normal”.

This process is anything but easy.  While some states may be reopening businesses, schools, and recreational opportunities based upon geography, community spread, and trends, multi-level retirement communities like ours (with Independent Living and Assisted Living), will have a different reopening schedule because we care for older adults who are most vulnerable to COVID-19.

Throughout this process we will continue to follow and maintain compliance with all CDC guidelines as well as mandates for all state and local health departments while balancing resident social engagement with quality of life.  The health and well-being of our residents and staff remain our top priority.

  • Meals

Independent Living:

Breakfast is served as pick up service from the Dining Hall. Please make sure you practice social distancing as well as wear mask. There will be gloves provided for you for handling food items such as packets of cereal and fruit.

All three meals are served to each resident in their room.

The health and well-being of our residents, family members, and staff is of the utmost importance to us. For this reason, we are closely monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In addition to our prevention measures, we are also actively preparing our communities to provide care and support for our residents and team members for an extended period of time should a quarantine become necessary.

Many standard infection control and safety protocols are already in place as a part of our standard flu prevention plan. However, because of the risks associated with COVID-19, we are proceeding with an abundance of caution to protect our communities.
