Caring for people with cognition deficits - dementia, strokes, traumatic brain injuries in a residential assisted living is challenging during normal times but add in the complications of COVID 19 and it has been one wild year for sure! Following is a quick glimpse of what it has taken to remain COVID Free.
Normal times meant an enjoyable setting with activities, visits from family and friends, outings, exercise classes, live music, pet visits, family dining, etc. This care model addresses the needs of Memory Care with a secure setting, 2 caregivers taking care of 8 residents all day, special open concept residential home modified to meet the resident’s special needs, modifications to activities, adjustments to food service, medical oversite, etc. We had to adjust their old normal to include the changes brought about by COVID 19.
So here we are today, a little burned out and exhausted, but happy we have remained COVID free for everyone’s sake. We have all been vaccinated and have encouraged our regular visitors to do the same. Indoor visitation is being allowed, hugs and hand holding can happen again, weather is warming up so we can get outside, walk, get our gardens going, eat our meals, have some fun and find our new normal. The vigilance continues until this pandemic is over.
