Visitation News Update

 

March 3, 2021

 

Dear Residents, Families and Partners:

 

We believe many of you have heard the Texas Governor’s announcement yesterday that he is lifting COVID related restrictions throughout the state as of Wednesday, March 10.  We are sure you all have questions about how this impacts the possible “re-opening” of our Community, especially as it relates to visitation.

In the Governor’s Executive Order GA-34, it states that assisted living facilities and long-term care facilities should continue to follow guidance from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) regarding any visitation and should continue to follow infection control policies and practices issued by HHSC.  Therefore, we do not currently anticipate any changes to our current practices next week.  Our staff will continue to wear masks and practice the COVID related infection control procedures and the COVID related staff and resident assessments that have been in place for almost a year.

Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
