The American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living issued guidance that recommends limiting non-essential visits to long term care patients and residents for all outside parties. We understand this is a stressful time and that checking in on your loved one is important.

The coronavirus poses a serious threat to the elderly and individuals with underlying health conditions, and those in nursing homes and assisted living communities are typically both. This is why we have made recommendations because we want ensure the frail and elderly are kept safe.

Compassionate Care

Update: 7-1-2020

Great News from Lapeer County Medical Care Facility!

The Governor has modified the Executive Order related to nursing home visitors.

Our facility has received guidance on the 1st phase of visitors to our facility

 

The following is a summary of next steps:

 

The facility will implement the guidelines and safe guards established by the State in the reopening plan for nursing home visitors.

 

Visitors are required to schedule an appointment – additional details will be sent out via ROBO a call by next week.  Visits will likely begin after July 15th.

The facility will initially host visitors Monday through Friday, during business hours.

The location will be determined by facility, visitors will be instructed upon arrival.

The state requires visits to be limited to “2” visitors during the visit

Visits will be for 30 minutes to accommodate as many guests as possible over the next several weeks

 

When you arrive for your visit you will drive up to the front entrance, stay in your car to be screened and receive written communication regarding hand sanitizing, personal protective equipment, and other restrictions as required by the State.  You will be permitted to wear your own face mask or one will be provided to you, which will be required to be worn at all times during visit.

 

All visits are required to be supervised, a 6 foot social distancing between the visitor and resident is required and no physical contact will be allowed during the visit, to protect the resident from potential COVID exposure.

 

We will send out information next week about how to schedule a face to face visit with your loved one.

 

Please be patient as we develop this process with the guidelines that were provided by the state late yesterday afternoon.
