Update 5/29/20

New Procedures for Health and Happiness Visits

We are excited to share some good news. As many states are moving from “Stay at Home” to “Safer at Home” restrictions, Christian Living Communities-Cappella’s leadership team has been working to distill directives and evaluate procedures in order to strike a balance between the crucial need to maintain the physical health of residents with mental health that leads to happiness.

We have developed new procedures pertaining to in-person visits via a plexiglass divider, self-isolation after essential appointments, residents who are able, to drive themselves to essential appointments, and excursions, which vary by community based on virus activity within the community, state regulations, and level of care. In all levels of living, state directives supersede new procedures. Information on what we are preparing for residents and families was shared at our May 28th Family Town Hall Webinar which you can view here.

This is an unprecedented time, and every decision we make is with the health and happiness of residents, families, and team members in mind. We are diligently planning, resourcing materials, and training staff on the new operational procedures. We appreciate your patience and understanding as it will take some time to implement these new guidelines. Please contact us at clermontparkmarketing@clcmail.org  with any questions.

While we are overjoyed that residents can enjoy greater freedoms and in-person family visits, we are still facing a virus that disproportionally affects older adults. We ask that everyone continue to do all they can to stay healthy and be mindful of the risk of exposure to this virus. Residents must stay well for our community to be well.

Thank you for your continued support as we celebrate residents and families as they make new memories!

Update 5/14/20

Clermont Park Approved to Re-Open the Health Suites Neighborhood to Serve Older Adults

We are pleased to share that Clermont Park has been approved by the state and county to re-open the Health Suites neighborhood for rehab and long-term-care admissions starting May 19th. We are so grateful to residents and families for their ongoing support, patience, and encouragement.

As businesses around us re-open on a limited basis, visits into our community remain prohibited for everyone’s health and safety. Clermont Park continues to follow strict virus prevention and cleaning protocols in cooperation with local, state, and federal guidelines. All team members continue wearing masks. We ask residents who leave their apartment home to please wear a mask when out and about in the community.

We continue working closely with the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, Tri-County Health and CLC clinical leadership to re-open long-term care neighborhoods to admissions early next week. South metro Denver has a greater need than ever for high-quality care for older adults, and resident and team member safety remains our highest concern. All new admissions to the Health Suites and assisted living neighborhoods will be served in full clinical isolation for the first 14 days of their stay per CDPHE and CMS guidelines. Independent Living move-ins are permissible under very strict guidelines for social isolation.

While we are happy to share some good news, please know that we are not letting up with our virus protocols. We continue all federal, state and county protocols.

Update on Governor Polis’ Safer at Home Order

While some services in our city and state will re-open next week, Clermont Park will maintain restricted visitor access and will continue to monitor temperatures and use personal protective equipment (PPE) as per guidelines from the CDC. Governor Polis’ Safer at Home Order stipulates that older adults must continue to remain at home, and that community restrictions and protocols stay in place. As an example, if a resident leaves for a hair appointment, they will still need to go on 14-day self-isolation in their apartment or suite even though some hair salons are open with a modified schedule. Team members will not move between the communities, and will be screened before working a shift.

During the restricted visitation, we encourage family members to call or arrange a video call with loved ones. We are also happy to forward a note or card.

We also continue to ask team members to use social distancing and shelter-at-home measures when not at work. Though it is challenging, especially when the rest of the city is loosening restrictions, these steps are intended to ensure the health and safety of everyone who lives and works at our community. As resident and team member safety is our top concern we continue to follow all virus protocols and monitoring the latest research, recommendations and are talking daily with epidemiologist and medical directors at the state level.

These precautions help us protect the vulnerable older adult population we serve. We are grateful for all of you and appreciate your proactive support and efforts during this period.

Update 3/16/20

Finding Ways to Connect for Older Adults during Social Distancing Directives

They say challenging times bring out the best in people. Anyone who has tried to buy toilet paper recently may disagree with that statement. In a broader sense, however, we see evidence this is true.  Neighbors are reaching out on the Nextdoor social media app offering to purchase groceries and run errands for older neighbors; teachers are providing non-perishable food to low-income students while schools are closed, and most importantly, the majority of Americans are following guidelines for social distancing. Nevertheless, social isolation can bring problems of its own. If you have a family member living in a nursing, assisted living or memory support community, you may be especially feeling that isolation. Fortunately, readily available technology can aid in alleviating some of the loneliness and anxiety about your loved one while helping to build community at the same time.

There are multiple free or very low-cost ways to connect with loved ones through technology. The most obvious and lowest-tech one is the phone. A daily phone call cannot only make your family member feel important, but it is a good way to check up on their mental wellbeing.

Older adults who live in a community can benefit from team members helping them connect via technology with family. If a resident is not comfortable using platforms like Skype or FaceTime to video chat with loved ones, Life Enrichment Coordinators can help them make the video calls. Additionally, Christian Living Communities utilizes the OneDay phone application. This is a video sharing app that enables team members to record short videos of residents’ life stories or daily activities and send them directly to family members. They can also share the video to social media when appropriate.

Social media is an excellent way to stay connected. Instagram and Facebook are great visual means for sending messages to isolated family members. In 2018, Facebook launched Watch Parties. A Watch Party is a way to connect and watch an event, program or video with other people and chat via the app.  Recently, churches have used Watch Parties or YouTube Live to connect worshippers with compromised immune systems with their fellow congregants. There are also Facebook groups that focus on common interests, hobbies, and discussion topics. With a little set-up and help, older adults can participate and feel they are a part of a much larger community.

We want to help older adults find purpose in this time of social distancing. We hope this restricted access to assisted living and memory support communities will be short, and family members and loved ones can get back to their normal engaging routines. In the meantime, there are benefits to short periods without distractions. If you want to help, consider sending fun greeting cards to your local senior living community. Have children draw pictures and send letters to residents; they may even get a response letter. Christian Living Communities is encouraging residents to start seedlings by providing pots and seeds to grow in their apartments and many similar creative outlets. Great creativity is a bi-product of such times!

Updated status for Colorado Assisted Living, Memory Support and Skilled Nursing Communities

We continue to work closely with state and local officials to balance resident safety, team member safety, and access for families and healthcare partners during heightened COVID-19 concerns. While no cases have been identified in Clermont Park, we are now implementing new CMS and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment directives to restrict access to our skilled nursing, assisted living, and memory support neighborhoods. This means that no visitors will be allowed within the assisted living, memory support or skilled neighborhoods at this time unless they are part of the required care team for an individual resident. Compassion visits may be accommodated for loved ones of a resident who is actively in an end of life situation. Such visitors will be screened and their temperatures taken before entering the community.

Additionally, CMS guidelines require us to no longer host dining services in our dining rooms; residents will receive their meals in their apartments or suites. Life enrichment group activities are also canceled at this time.

Residential and independent living neighborhoods continue to screen all guests for symptoms and we are encouraging social distancing. As we have no COVID-19 cases in the community, we continue to welcome new residents into all levels of living.

We are doing everything we can to ensure residents are well cared for, but also that they continue to have joy and purpose during these restrictions. These measures are an attempt to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Social distancing and isolation are the only proven way to stop the spread of the virus. We will work with families to help them connect with their loved one via technologies as Face-time, Skype and video conferencing.  As always, resident’s health and wellbeing are our primary concern.

Coronavirus Preparedness at Clermont Park

The health of residents and team members at Clermont Park is our highest priority. Given the recent news of fatalities in a senior living community in Washington State, we’ve asked our leaders and team members in our communities to follow already in place protocols and procedures to ensure the prevention and possible spread of this virus. Our communities are following procedures recommended by the CDC and our own clinical team. Those recommendations include vigilant disinfecting procedures, frequent handwashing, proper cough etiquette and requiring team members who are ill to stay home. We want to prepare but not panic.
