Covid Update

We want to inform you that we have received confirmation that two additional residents have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Resident safety is our top priority and we are doing everything we can to ensure we prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our facility.

We are staying in close communication with local and state health officials to ensure we are taking all the appropriate steps. We understand that you are concerned about your loved one, but it is crucial that we restrict visitation and reduce the spread of this virus. We also understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important to our residents. Family members are encouraged to continue connecting with their loved ones through video chat, calling, texting and other social media formats.

Please understand that due to the nature of this virus and the numerous steps involved in preventing its spread, much time is spent on resident care and appropriate infection control practices. However, we will do our very best to answer your calls as they come in and/or return your calls promptly.

We will contact you if your loved one is suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone, we will continue to provide you with updates as they become available.

Thank you,

Updated visiting policy

I just want to update all of you on changes to the visitor policy. The CDC and Governor Pritzker have announced masks are no longer necessary for vaccinated people. This does not apply to healthcare settings. Masks are still required here in the building. With that being said, we are changing our visiting policy, so visits can be done in the room.

You may visit with your loved one in their room. When you arrive you will still be required to pass the screen. Anyone with a fever, cough, or other symptoms will not be allowed to visit. Please go directly to your loved one’s room, and visit in the room. If your loved one has a roommate, please pull the curtain between the Residents.

Visiting hours will be Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm, and weekends from 9:00am to 11:00am, and 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Outdoor visits are still encouraged, and visitors must be over 18 years old. We would still like to limit the exposure to the residents, so please try to keep visitors to two at a time.

I would like to remind everyone that if the county positivity rate goes up, or we have a staff person or Resident with Covid we may need to change procedures. We are very excited to increase visiting hours, and are thankful our Residents get more time with their loved ones.

As always, please call with any questions.

Thank you,

Covid update

We are pleased to announce, we are still Covid free! Yesterday, the CDC announced fully vaccinated people no longer have to wear masks. While that is excellent news in the strides the nation is making in the fight against Covid; unfortunately, this does not apply to health care settings. We are still required to wear masks here at the facility. Many of the residents saw the announcement, and may have questions. We will keep everyone updated as things change.

There are no significant changes to Covid policies in long term care. We are still able to do visits, communal dining, and activities. We are following all guidance from IDPH, and the local health department. Please call with any questions.

Thank you,
