Latest updates:

Emotions are running high at nursing homes and assisted living communities as staff are isolating residents in an effort to protect them from the Coronavirus. The nature of those residents being in close proximity to each other makes community transmission an almost certainty. Many residents’ advanced age and underlying medical conditions create a recipe for disaster when mixed with outbreak scenarios.

 COVID-19 cases have increased across the country, industry officials have been recommending that assisted living facilities, where older people live in close quarters, should not allow outsiders — including contractors, government officials and even staff members — to enter unless their task is considered essential.

Due to the escalation of the virus, the federal government has now officially told family and friends to stay away from senior living communities as some people can have a COVID-19 infection and be asymptomatic. The risk of unwittingly creating an outbreak situation remains too great for communities and governments to ignore these grim warnings.

In light of the risk to those most vulnerable, our number one priority at InTouchLink is helping to protect senior residents and community staff from COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. We’ve moved swiftly to provide guidance to communities wanting to safeguard themselves in 14 steps to avoid COVID-19 in senior living communities.

We’ve also provided WHO COVID-19 online staff training for FREE for communities in need. Register here: COVID-19 Training

As the government has told communities to cancel all group activities and communal dining, residents are cut off from loved ones and vice versa. Families can provide vital monitoring and often essential emotional and mental support.

Luckily, restricting visits doesn’t mean curtailing communication between residents, family, friends and staff. We have your back.

These are the goals:

  1. Limit potential hysteria
  2. Keep people calm to support better mental health
  3. Provide a supportive and safe community environment
  4. Improve AD HOC emergency broadcasts
  5. Offset feelings of isolation during the most critical times
  6. Keep everyone safe

At the very least, wish you, your loved ones and those under your care the utmost safety and wellness during these challenging times.
