Supportive Living Visitation 

  • Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which is the Federal licensing agency, and the Department of Health (DOH) and Department of Human Service (DHS) have issued guidance regarding in-building visitation for skilled nursing and personal care Residents. Beginning Monday, March 15, we are happy to welcome family and friends back into the building to visit their loved ones!

Families and friend’s cooperation and understanding will be needed in order to make visitation as enjoyable and meaningful to Residents and visitors.

  • When visitation begins:

All visitors must go through the checkpoint for symptom screening.

All visitors must enter and exit through the Welcome Center, sign in and review visitation guidelines.

All visitors must wear a face mask, and maintain social distance during their visit.

In order to maintain social distance, we encourage not more than 2 visitors at a time.

We encourage visits to be not more than 1 hour long.

All visits will be in Resident rooms, or outdoors.

No visitors may be in common areas.

Should there be a COVID positive Resident, or exposure to a COVID positive team member, all visitation will stop until outbreak testing is complete with no new cases.  The exception is that compassionate caregiver visits can continue during an outbreak.

Changes to this plan may occur and we will keep you informed should that happen. Thank you for your help and patience as we transition to in-person visits for Supportive Living!
