Springhouse Senior Living is actively responding to the COVID-19 pandemic
As always, our number one priority is ensuring the health and well-being of our residents and staff. This policy will be kept updated with the newest information for the seniors we serve, their families and loved ones. We have reviewed lessons learned during the Spring surge, along with new information about the virus that has since come to light, to further strengthen our best-in-class approach to containing and mitigating COVID-19 among our highly vulnerable population.
Visitation policies are in place following guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Executive Office of Elder Affairs and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Anyone entering our community, including all employees, visitors, medical professionals, private caretakers, contractors, family members, etc. are asked about signs and symptoms of illness and physically screened for a fever. All visitors must use hand sanitizer upon entering the community. Wearing a mask is mandatory throughout Springhouse property, inside and outside.
Significant supports and services are available as we continue to reinforce the state’s message that seniors are safer at home. At the same time, we are continuing to modify our operations in order to manage the risk of infection from the virus while supporting our residents in living their best lives.
Because our resident population is more vulnerable than the general public, we have intensive measures in place with their well-being in mind. In addition to these actions, we are continuing our already strict infection prevention and control protocols with frequent cleaning of high-touch areas and changes to our community to promote physical distancing. We have expanded virtual programming, video chat capabilities and other efforts to support the physical and emotional well-being for our residents. We deeply appreciate your partnership in keeping our residents and employees safe.
The global situation with COVID-19 is actively evolving, and we will communicate any pertinent updates to you as soon as possible.
