Protocols

We are following the direction of our public health officials to the letter, and have full infection prevention and control precautions in place. Staff continue to monitor residents closely and are ensuring the following protocols are being adhered to:

 Recreation Program

 Our recreation staff are continuing to have social interactions on a one to one basis with residents. This includes a variety of crafts, word games and memory puzzles, facetime and skype calls with loved ones. If you would like to facetime or skype your loved one please email your request to stanford-recreation@retirementconcepts.com. Calls can only be set up on a bi-weekly basis as to ensure that there is more than enough time for all of our residents to enjoy. Our recreation team will do their best to fulfill everyone’s request as often as time permits. We appreciate your understanding to limit the calls to 15 -30 minutes.

For Independent Living and Assisted Living please email your facetime and skype call requests to rtranberg@retirementconcepts.com and we will be happy to confirm a date and time to connect you with your loved one.

 Independent Living and Assisted Living Dining Room

 We have now closed our dining room and residents are now receiving tray service delivery to their suites. Lunch delivery starts at approximately 11:45 and Dinner at 4:45.

 Market Wagon

 We have the market wagon up and running stocked with lots of inventory. The market wagon will be going around from 6:00pm – 7:00pm every day to allow Independent living and Assisted living residents to purchase items if they choose.

If Required:

All deliveries will be received at the front desk between 7:00am – 5:00pm. This includes groceries, medications, gifts. All will be sanitized and delivered directly to the resident’s suites.

Dropping items off: We would ask that families please follow these guidelines to ensure your parent or loved one to get their deliveries in a timely manner.

  1. Please use plastic bags, no reusable bags
  2. Make sure to label all bags with resident full name and room number
  3. Try to limit drop offs to essential items. There are days when staff are overwhelmed trying to keep up
  4. Please sanitize, if possible, the items before dropping off. We will re-sanitize as well to be safe

 Reminders for your loved one to Stay Safe:

Again, the following four points are so critical to discuss with your loved ones. Please help us by reminding each resident daily of the following four items:

  1. Practice social distancing (6 feet apart)
  2. Perform proper Hand Hygiene (Wash hands frequently for 20 seconds with the alcohol-based sanitizer or soap and hot water) 20 second or greater is so important.
  3. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  4. If exhibiting any symptoms (fever, cough and difficulty breathing) please alert staff immediately.

 

Thank You

We want to thank everyone for their cooperation and patience during this difficult period.

With Love,

The Stanford Seniors Village Team
