While life has certainly changed for all of us with the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, the residents and associates at Remington Heights Senior Living Community are making the best of it and staying optimistic.

            Our No. 1 priority is the health, safety and comfort of our residents. We have been following protocols from the CDC, state and local governing agencies since March 9.

To limit our residents’ exposure to COVID-19, we have implemented these safeguards:

  • We screen all associates at the start of their shift, including taking their temperature.
  • Associates are wearing face masks.
  • New move-ins must be asymptomatic, have a negative Covid test result, and follow the same isolation guidelines as our residents.
  • Intentional infection prevention and protocols and enhanced staff training include frequent cleaning and disinfecting.
  • Doors are secured 24/7.
  • We are observing full visitor restrictions.
  • Residents are served their selected meal
  • Residents are encouraged to be at a safe distance from others while wearing a face mask while out in our common spaces.
  • We are aiding communication with family members by cell phones, computer apps, Zoom, Facetime, Skype, One Day videos and other creative means.

We are also continually monitoring and following additional guidance from the CDC and state and local health departments.

We help facilitate “window visits” in our auditorium for families to visit and see their loved one, and courtyard visits for families to visit in person with social distancing being practiced.

Our residents also especially like the efforts we are making to connect them with their loved ones over video calls such as FaceTime. One of our sweet ladies was able to see her great-grandbabies, during a Facetime visit.

We are so thankful that during this critical time our staffing remains consistent. This is a testament to all the incredible group of caring, committed associates that work for us who are living our mission, vision and values each day.

For example, staff members are going on grocery runs for our residents. Our staff keep the residents engaged with Root Beer Float carts, Wacky Wednesday, and having entertainers perform outside their windows.

“It’s just the little things that go a long way, and faith over fear,” shared Cortney Hartz, Marketing Director.

Our residents say it best, though.

“I am extremely fortunate to be at Remington Heights,” said resident Assisted Living resident. “Through this virus crisis, everyone is caring, attentive, helpful and kind. I feel safe with the precaution measures, and I am thankful to be here!”
