Covid 19 Update

3-20-20 Update

We are continuing to respond to this rapidly changing situation.  Over the past week, we have instituted a no visitor policy, have closed the dining room and instituted meal delivery, structured the facility to maintain social distancing and are working to meet and exceed the new guidelines.  Our community continues to be healthy. The safety of our residents and staff are the priority.

We are sad to say that we can no longer allow visiting with family and friends anywhere on the campus outside the main building, i.e. the “front porch” or walks around the grounds. This is per CDC recommendations.

We will continue to participate in the daily conference calls with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services and the Center for Disease Control in order to receive the most up to date information. As we progress, we will continue to update you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call.

3-13-20 Update

This is part of the Emergency Declaration that Governor Sununu issued on March 13, 2020:

Beginning at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 15th, all assisted living facilities, long term care facilities, nursing facilities, residential care facilities . . . or any other similar facilities providing residential care to elderly or infirm patients shall prohibit visitor access to reduce facility-based transmission of COVID- 19. This prohibition shall not apply to medically necessary personnel, visitors for residents receiving end of life care, or visitors necessary to provide for residents [sic] psychosocial needs as determined by a licensed medical care provider.

Due to the recent pandemic Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the frailty of our residents, our facility is closed to visitors until further notice.

The State of New Hampshire has mandated that our facility limit visitation to ONLY residents receiving hospice or end-of-life care, and those visitors will be thoroughly screened prior to entering our facility.

We understand that this is going to be a frustrating and frightening time for families. Please know that this protocol is being initiated to ensure that the health and well-being of our residents and caregivers is protected. Staff members are available to help residents receive phone calls, as well as Skype and Facetime with their loved ones until this restriction is lifted.

You can protect your own health and safety by performing the following basic precautions:

  • Wash your hands, FREQUENTLY! (for 20 seconds – sing Happy Birthday twice during washing)
  • Avoid contact with your face (particularly mouth, nose, and/or eyes)
  • Use proper respiratory etiquette (cover your coughs and sneezes)
  • If you’re are sick, STAY HOME!
  • Perform routine cleaning for frequently used areas at home, your workspace, and in your car!

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and THANK YOU for your patience and support to guarantee the safety to our residents and your loved ones. If you have any questions, please contact our facilities.
