Keeping you updated on COVID efforts

Nov 9th, 2020

To Our Residents and Families:

As our state and our nation continue to navigate life with COVID-19, our community remains committed to the safety of our residents, our staff and their families. Over the past few months we have worked closely with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to ensure all protocols for senior living are being followed including:

  • Active screening of all visitors and employees entering the building.
  • Masks and eye shields (when applicable) being worn in common areas at all times.
  • Observance of proper hand hygiene and social distancing rules (6ft or more).
  • Modified activities and dining protocols to ensure safety.
  • Limited visitation and traffic on campus. (See below for more details)
  • Continued testing of symptomatic staff and residents.
     

Current Visiting Opportunities Include: (All visits must be scheduled in advance)

  • Essential Caregiver Visits – These visits are available to those who are providing care to a resident needing physical, financial or emotional assistance.
  • Compassionate Care Visits – These visits apply to loved ones of those experiencing a health crisis or nearing end-of-life.
  • Inside Visits – Open to all residents, visits take place in a specially designated visitation area. These visits are only available when both of the following criteria are met:
  1. There are no active COVID-19 cases in the building - AND -
  2. The county two-week positive test rate is 10 or less.

 

While COVID-19 will be with us for the foreseeable future, our team has risen to the challenge to ensure our campuses remain as safe as possible. Especially now, the benefits and value of senior living far outweigh staying at home. Our community offers:

 

  • Delicious, chef-prepared, seasonally inspired meals available three times daily
  • Dedicated Programming Director to keep your mind and spirit engaged
  • Full-time Wellness Director and fitness center to keep your body moving
  • Onsite Maintenance staff to ensure your home is in tiptop shape
  • Full-time receptionists to assist with grocery orders, deliveries, ride scheduling and more.
  • Exceptional, high-trained care teams onsite around-the-clock.

 

We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 in our communities and proactively plan for changes that may come. Thank you for following our safety guidelines and your efforts in helping keep everyone safe. Please know we will keep you informed of any changes to visitation or activities as soon as possible.

 

Sincerely,

 

The SilverCrest Corporate Team
