Westminster Village North Website update

4/15/20

Our commitment to providing exceptional care is unwavering as the Covid-19 pandemic continues. How we deliver care may be changing temporarily, but we remain committed to the health of our residents, staff and families.

The President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America state, “Do not visit nursing homes or retirement or long-term care facilities unless to provide critical care.” And we are under a state-mandated visitor restriction, lifted only for end-of-life situations. We know how hard this is for our residents and their family members and we are doing our best to satisfy the needs of both.  As has been published, self-isolation is the best means to reduce the opportunity for the virus to be spread. Though not ideal for seniors, self-quarantine is what will keep them safest.

In these difficult times, we appreciate everyone’s understanding. For more information on Covid-19, refer to the Centers for Disease Control (www.cdc.com) or the Indiana State Department of Health (in.gov/isdh).

Package Hold Notification

While it is still unclear whether the Coronavirus can survive on surfaces – and for what period of time, we have implemented restrictions to err on the side of precaution. Any non-perishable packages delivered for residents in Assisted Living and our Skilled Nursing area will be held for 72 hours before delivery. The exceptions will be perishable items and medications.  We appreciate your understanding.
