Our Response to COVID-19

We have implemented protocols aimed at keeping residents and team members as safe as possible while also providing a quality lifestyle for each member of our community.

Below you will find steps to move-In plus additional information regarding our safety protocols.
Benefits of This Community
  • Access to Essentials: The community can help obtain essentials, like groceries and medications, so you can limit your exposure.
  • Care Coordination: For a variety of care needs, an onsite team is able to provide care services or coordinate additional care if needed.
  • Support for Residents & Families: Family is important, and senior living communities want to provide multiple connection options with residents and family members.
  • Dining Services: Dining may look different, with smaller groups and more space, though you still have an opportunity for a shared meal. Meal delivery to your apartment is also available.
  • Access to Information & Expertise: We’ve partnered with expert physicians and other health care professionals to help guide and advise us on how best to navigate the challenges of the virus.
  • Opportunities for Socialization: Instead of being home alone, you can see other residents and our team members check in daily while practicing social distancing.
  • Environmental Protocols: Communities have enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols in place, with outside professional cleaning services as needed.
  • Activities & Wellness: It is important to focus on the elements of health and wellness. Our teams continue to find creative ways to make this happen every day.
Technology That Makes a Difference

We have installed UV lights in all common area split systems and rooftop units: Germicidal UV light technology has been in use for decades in the medical industry and proven effective in destroying micro-organisms such as, germs, viruses, bacteria. The UV technology combined with the PHI technology provides a system, where in, many micro-organisms can be reduced by 95% while also purifying the air by reducing gases, odors, etc. NOTE that the RGF units are patent pending and while proven effective against many viruses, etc. they have not been certified against COVID-19.

We have upgraded the filters in all of the common HVAC systems to the highest efficiency/MERV rated pleated filter the unit fans will handle. High efficiency filters has increased the systems effectiveness at stopping dust and moisture particulates that viruses, bacteria, etc. often attach to in an airborne state. Increased frequency of building filter changes will maintain maximum filter effectiveness at stopping airborne pollutants.

Positive Case Protocols

If a case of the virus occurs in one of our communities, we act quickly to assess potential risks and limit exposure. Our teams act based on our years of experience combined with local, state and national guidelines.

For example, we may decide to temporarily close the dining room and offer in-room dining, or temporarily limit social activities. Open communication is key with all changes we make, and we provide frequent updates to residents and families.
