We are excited to announce our Christian Health Centers will allow indoor visitation for all residents regardless of vaccination status.
The COVID-19 global pandemic called for us to grow, adapt and innovate all while being drawn closer with a focus on Faith – Care – Family. Our response to COVID-19 continues to bring admiration for the dedication and implemented to keep our residents and staff safe, connected and close to our hearts. We are mindful of the huge toll isolation made on our residents and families. The impact of the pandemic will continue to be felt for months to come as we continue our infection monitoring and prevention programs. Our path toward reopening all our communities, has brought us to this important update. The federal government has updated its CMS visitation guidance due to increased resident vaccination rates and decreased COVID-19 cases around the country.
All staff, visitors and residents must still adhere to the core principles of COVID-19 infection control. Including maintaining physical distancing, screening of all who enter the facility for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, hand hygiene, wearing a surgical mask and conducting visits outdoors whenever possible. This continues to be the safest way to prevent the spread of COVID-19, particularly if either party has not been fully vaccinated. Please contact your local community as visiting hours vary by location.
Safer Than Ever Before
Christian Care Communities continues to work with our national pharmacy partners to establish additional vaccination opportunities for our newly admitted residents and staff to keep everyone in our communities as safe as possible. Through our relationships with medical supply providers, each of our senior living communities has access to the highest-quality disinfectant tools available for leading infection control protocols. Our residents and staff continue to protect and honor each other by practicing social distancing, as well as adhering to additional state and federal guidance. Each of our frontline staff and healthcare heroes have access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) whenever it’s needed.
We thank you for your continued support during this very difficult pandemic. We are excited to begin welcoming you back into our Christian Health Centers and communities statewide.
