In a post-COVID-19 world, sanitation is critical.
Highland Senior Living is dedicated to your health and safety, which is why we have instituted new protocols and cleaning procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Ensuring our tenants and residents are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our first priority.
Our community follows the CDC’s recommendations for flu prevention, like following strict handwashing procedures, and we wearing gowns and gloves when interacting with tenants who present symptoms. We also are staying up to date with the CDC recommendations as they may continue to change. Additionally, we are in close contact with the local and state health department, and we are following their guidance.
The CDC has done a careful review of the death rate in the elderly, especially those with dementia or chronic diseases. Experts recommend we take action to limit individuals from entering our building and ensure sick employees stay home. We offer hand washing and alcohol-based hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. We wash our hands regularly and avoid shaking hands and hugs with any individual. Our residents are encouraged to stay home as we offer additional support as needed with virtual visits, organizing the delivery of essential items, and provide engaging activities within their own apartments or small groups.
We are providing daily health screenings for all residents and have increased sanitizing and disinfecting protocols. The apartments have individual heating and cooling systems so that residents don’t have to share ductwork with their neighbors; this also helps reduce the spread of infection. Residents are socially distanced and wear masks when outside of their apartment, and we encourage frequent handwashing. The vaccine for COVID-19 is being rolled out in our community and will be offered to residents, staff, and essential caregivers.
The current COVID-19 outbreak situation means it is critical that we take every precaution possible to keep you and your loved ones safe.
