Dear Residents, Families, and Associates of Woodland Terrace;
Thank you for your continued support during the ongoing Coronavirus situation. We continue to align with all federal, state, and Kisco Senior Living recommendations for keeping our community safe. As we are in Phase 2 of the Governor’s plan for re-opening we have made following changes to our operations (effective immediately):
Aligned with Federal and State Guidelines, we are restricting ALL visitors except as follows:
· “Compassionate” visits (only in instances of end-of-life)
· Individuals directly providing essential health services
These visitor restrictions prohibit family, friends, clergy, non-medical personal services providers, private duty aides, entertainers, and all other individuals deemed “non-essential” at this time. We apologize for the impact this may have on your “normal” visitation frequency, and we appreciate your support of our desire to prioritize the health of our residents. Once environmental conditions dictate, our standard practices will be re-established.
The safety and health of our residents is critical. In addition to these visitor restrictions we have implemented the following additional actions and have reopened some of areas after consultation with officials and Kisco Senior Living in compliance with Phase 2:
· Daily monitoring of associate and resident health (for fever & other symptoms)
· Independent and Assisted Living Dining Rooms remain closed (meals delivered daily)
· Limited Wellness events have resumed with no more than 6 for internal building program and outside programs with a slightly larger number allowed (mask wearing and social distancing required)
· Our Pool has re-opened with restrictions on usage
· Beauty Salon has re-opened with restrictions on usage
· Gym/fitness area remains closed per Governor’s orders
· Increased sanitizing and cleaning continues throughout the community (especially in high-traffic and high-touch areas)
As we continue to monitor the latest news and guidance, we will keep you informed of any additional changes. During this time, we highly encourage “virtual visits” (phone, FaceTime, etc) and “window visits”. Please contact our staff to schedule these type of visit. We want to continue to provide opportunities for you to keep in touch while keeping everyone safe!
Thank you for all of your support. Please let me know if you have any concerns or questions.
