COVID-19 UPDATE FOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2021

We again tested all staff twice this holiday week and we are pleased all COVID testing was negative for the virus.
Visitors were very pleased that the Health Care Center (HCC) was hosting more expansive visits (no appointments necessary, no visit time limit, no restriction on the age or number of visitors).  And we really appreciate all your kind words to our staff as you visited and expressed your appreciation for how hard we have worked and how successful we have been keeping COVID out.  But most importantly, seeing our residents get together with loved ones and friends was the best part of seeing so many people filter into our lobby over the last week!
There are still some issues presented by COVID.  We are still required to screen all visitors, so that does take staff time and can cause lobby delays – so thank you for your patience.  All visitors must wear a mask properly for their entire visit.  But the largest challenge is keeping our residents from being exposed to visitors who share a room with another resident. If your loved one has a roommate, you may benefit from calling ahead to secure a designated visitation space in the event your resident’s roommate is in the room when you visit.  Please reach out to your Social Worker in the HCC if your loved one has a roommate who is not comfortable with allowing visitors in their room.  We will do everything in our power to help get you a visit in your loved one’s room, especially as many of you want to help decorate the rooms for the holidays.  (Please keep in mind with holiday décor that we are not permitted to use extension cords in patient rooms nor do we permit “real” trees or wreaths since they are fire hazards).
We are hosting another Vaccine Clinic here on December 1st with our partners from the Chesterfield Health Department. It is our goal to complete the final booster shots for the handful of our HCC residents who were unable to get the injection a few weeks ago.  It will also be the final clinic on our campus for staff to receive their vaccine.  Per CMS and the Biden Administration, we will no longer be able to employ or contract with anyone who is not fully vaccinated.  Please keep our residents and staff in your thoughts and prayers as we make this final effort to have as many people as possible vaccinated.
Thanks for your patience, your thoughts and prayers – everyone here appreciates it more than you know, me included!

Please select from the choices below to learn the latest protocols on what to expect when you wish to visit someone on the Lucy Corr Campus.

Visitors are welcome without restriction, however, all visitors must wear a mask in common areas.  Currently, we are not permitting visitors to dine in the Bistro restaurant, but visitors are welcome to join Independent Living residents in their cottage or apartments for meals.

Visitors are welcome and may enter and exit using the Assisted Living lobby.  All visitors must be screened by a staff member before going directly to their loved one’s apartment. At this time, all visitors must wear a new mask provided by Lucy Corr, and presently we are not permitting visitors to dine with our Assisted Living residents in any area or attend activities.

Visitors are no longer required to make appointments to visit residents, and there are no longer limits on the lengths of visits or the number or age of visitors.  All visitors must wait to be screened at the entry of the Health Care Center (HCC) and must follow the COVID infection control guidelines to gain and retain access to the HCC.

Visitors, regardless of their vaccine status, must wear a new mask provided by Lucy Corr and must visit with the resident either in the resident’s room or in a designated visitation area away from other residents.

If your loved one has a roommate, then your visit may have to be held in a designated visitation area to prevent the roommate from exposure.  While all residents have the right to have visitors, they also have the right to not be exposed to visitors not here to see them.  If this is the case, there may be wisdom in calling ahead of your visit to reserve a designated visitation space.  If you need to gain access to your loved one’s room and they have a roommate, please call your Social Worker so they can help time your visit when the roommate is out of the room.
 
We are currently not allowing visitors to attend activities or meals/dine with HCC residents.

We are currently offering Virtual Visits for our Health Care Residents. These are highly encouraged for families who are out of town, those who are unable to come into the building due to personal health issues, or anyone feeling under the weather. If you would like to schedule a virtual visit, please use the link below.

PROTOCOLS FOR OUR STAFF

Following guidance from the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), Lucy Corr has implemented the following precautions for our staff:

  • Our staff members are being monitored for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Staff members have been educated on the process of self-reporting. If you have known exposure to COVID-19, immediately let your supervisor know.
  • We are actively screening staff members as well as essential non-staff personnel and vendors, such as supply deliverers, emergency medical personal, transportation providers, and other service providers to help prevent any potential exposure or transmission of COVID-19.
  • Our staff has had the opportunity to receive the COVID vaccine if they so wish. We will continue to make these opportunities available to them if they wish to become vaccinated.

VIRTUAL VISITS ENCOURAGED

Our Wi-Fi is available and free of charge for residents. If you provide your loved one with their own personal tablet or Wi-Fi device, they can connect with friends and families at any time, and not have to wait for our assistance.

If you are interested in providing your loved one with his/her own Wi-Fi device to use for virtual visiting, please keep the following mind:

  • The resident should be aware and responsible enough to handle and use the device properly. Lucy Corr will not be responsible for replacing a lost or broken device.
  • The device should be clearly labeled, in a permanent manner, with the resident’s name.
  • The device should include all necessary batteries, chargers, cords, etc.
  • The device should be pre-set with apps and account information so the resident can use it right away. 
  • The device/app should be compatible with whatever device/app you will be using (ex: FaceTime requires an Apple device; other platforms like Zoom, Skype, Google-Hangouts, etc. will work with Android devices.)
  • The device should be from a reputable, well-known brand (like Apple iPad, Amazon Kindle/Fire or Samsung tablets).
