Gazebo Senior Living COVID-19 Protocols and Preparedness
Our culture has always stressed the importance of policy and procedures to ensure cleanliness and safety for our residents. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has always been a high priority to protect our vulnerable population against seasonal illnesses and diseases such as cold viruses, influenza, noroviruses, etc.
We offer a generous paid time off policy to encourage our employees to never come into work if they do not feel well. We offer them training and guidance on how to self-monitor and self-isolate if necessary.
We are reinforcing existing protocols to ensure that staff are following infection control and prevention standards, such as frequent hand washing, frequent cleaning of surfaces, and other recommended hygiene measures.
Our emergency preparedness guidelines have been expanded to include the acquisition of any additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) needed to protect our staff and residents.
Our staff are regularly updated on the current community infection status of COVID, updated CDC and Dept. of Health guidelines, and any updates to our policies and procedures as the situation evolves.
We have been scheduling virtual appointments with resident’s health care providers for non-urgent appointments. These appointments are coordinated with our nursing staff. We are providing transportation for residents to in-person appoints if they cannot be completed virtually.
Our staff coordinates virtual meetings for families and their loved ones via FaceTime, Zoom, etc. (Please contact Shannon Russell, Life Enrichment Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-861-3714 to schedule).
We are currently accepting new admissions.
As of March 22, 2021, we are scheduling in-person tours and are open for visitation.
As of October, 2021, all of our residents are vaccinated and our staff are 98% vaccinated.
