Protecting Against COVID-19

To best protect the health and safety of the residents we serve, and in accordance with the most recent CDC guidance, Woodlands Senior Living will no longer permit non-essential visitors to enter our communities at this time. We appreciate your understanding and support as we continue to work hard at limiting potential exposure to, and spread of, COVID-19 within our communities.

 

COVID-19 Surveillance Testing of Personnel

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Assisting Housing settings were closed to most members of the public, including family and friends, contracted service vendors, case managers, students, volunteers, etc. Now that COVID-19 conditions have stabilized in most counties and Assisted Housing settings have adopted best practices for preventing and containing spread of the virus, we are beginning the process of reengaging our communities. Doing so will decrease the isolation experienced by residents and allow for enrichment of services.

The extent to which an Assisted Housing setting should engage with its community is influenced by the COVID-19 conditions within the setting and the rate of new COVID-19 cases in the county where it is located. In addition, guidance from the Department of Health and Human Services in conjunction with Maine CDC requires that Assisted Housing providers implement baseline and routine surveillance COVID-19 testing of all personnel. The frequency of the surveillance testing is also influenced by the rate of new COVID-19 cases in the county where a facility is located but will occur at least monthly.

Dear Family and Friends,

There have been many developments recently regarding the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout the United States, which has understandably caused concern and uncertainty. Please know that at Woodlands Senior Living, the health and safety of the residents we serve are our highest priorities.

Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we are taking precautionary measures and have internal plans in place to help prevent the spread of illness, especially among older populations. Our staff is trained in practices and protocols that prioritize the health of your loved one.

Older adults can be particularly vulnerable to the spread of any illness, so we ask that you please reconsider visiting the community if you are not feeling well or if you have recently traveled to any areas affected by Coronavirus. As we continue to monitor the spread of the Coronavirus, we may need to implement additional visitor screenings. Please understand that any potential screenings or restrictions placed on visitors will be made with the best interest of residents in mind.

We will share all relevant updates on this page. To keep abreast of emerging information about COVID-19, you may also visit the Center for Disease Control’s website at: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html and www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc/infectious-disease/epi/airborne/documents/COVID-19-FS.pdf

As we navigate this time, we continue to focus on making each day the best day possible for the residents we serve, while helping to bring peace of mind to the people who love them.
