Keeping COVID-19 out of senior living communities, assisted living facilities, memory care communities, and post-acute care locations has become a full time job on top of the everyday care and services healthcare heroes are continuing to perform. It is absolutely paramount that there is a steady and universal strategy in place to ensure the safety of the residents, patients and healthcare providers.
If you are the loved one of someone in senior living, whether it’s assisted living, memory care, or post-acute care, you know how hard these past few months have been. As such, we had to act decisively and swiftly to implement new policies and procedures with our number one priority being to keep the people entrusted in our care safe from the virus.
Even during the pandemic, our Signature Dining program is providing a variety of delicious options. As our senior living communities have had to update their dining programs to keep everyone safe, it remains important to still provide the older population with various selections of freshly cooked, tasty and nutritious food options to keep them healthy.
We understand that mental health is extremely important as we have always placed intriguing the mind first on our approach to caring for this population. Here are some of the ways that our communities are inspiring motivation for the seniors and their family members.
One fact remains clear about this pandemic. COVID-19 has the highest mortality rate for senior citizens and those with underlying health conditions. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that people who have had to be hospitalized feel confident when they are discharged to the next phase of their road to recovery.
Healthcare, across the continuum has been forced to make decisive actions to adapt their care and operations to keep everyone as safe as possible. Senior living, in relation to assisted living, memory care, post-acute care or even home care services, are creating a “new normal.”
The need for human connection is so important, now more than ever. Luckily, in today’s age of technology, there are many virtual activities you can do with your loved one to keep you all connected, safely.
As senior living companies continue to adapt to new methods of caring during COVID-19, it is important to continue to keep the seniors engaged to move the body, intrigue the mind and inspire the spirit with a robust recreation program.
