December 2020 - Senior Living Virus Update
Just a quick update on the status of Covid precautions and special procedures around licensed Assisted Living properties.
Well it's December and we don't need to tell you that global Covid response continues to evolve from day to day. Assisted Living properties continue to be very cautious about tours and visitors. But they are moving folks in, usually after a virtual tour of the property via Internet, cameras and videos. Managers of the properties are hopeful that, once holidays are over and vaccines are rolled out, a new and improved year will be enjoyed.
Hooray! The vaccines are coming! The vaccines are coming!
In these bleek times, it is easy to forget that there is actual humanity out there and that diligent workers are looking out for everyone else instead of themselves. If you turn off the TV and pay attention to the many charitable folks and professional workers, it is possible to regain a bit of confidence about our future.
Speaking of better folks and better human qualities... it has been so satisfying to see how families and seniors have been so understanding and patient with the current senior living situation. Even seniors just moving into a new property without the benefit of regular family visits are rolling with the adjusted daily routines. And, families, too, have been very patient with the modified tour and research processes at their target properties. Hang in there. You're doing great.
Lastly, a new benefit to moving to AL? Vaccines are being offered in various Assisted Living properties. As part of the sign up and move in process some properties are offering a Covid vaccine to kick things off. What a strange marketing tool.
Call us as soon as you get ready to consider your options. We can save you a good deal of time and concern.
