At Maplewood Senior Living, the health and well-being of our residents and associates is our top priority. We continue to take extra precautions to protect our communities against the spread of viral infections. These precautions are based on guidance released by the CDC, state, and federal authorities. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, so do guidelines and restrictions in our states. We are committed to staying on top of guidance as it is released, and will make changes to our practices and policies accordingly. This means that in-person visits, programming, and dining may look different between Maplewood Senior Living Communities. As guidance changes, we remain committed to communicating with our families, residents, and associates.
Across all of our communities, infection control and prevention efforts remain a vital part of our response to COVID-19. We continue to be even more diligent about preventative general safety measures including intensive cleaning and disinfecting protocols, routine testing of all associates, enhanced screening for residents and visitors, reinforcing hand washing and infection control training for all our Maplewood Senior Living associates, residents, and visitors, among others. Additionally, all of our communities maintain a significant inventory of personal protective equipment and disinfecting and cleaning supplies. You can read more about our 9 Point Plan for managing COVID-19 on an ongoing basis.
From the earliest days of this global pandemic we have been proactive in our efforts to creatively adapt and innovate the ways in which we operate our communities and keep our residents safe, engaged, and connected with loved ones. We’ve augmented our regular programming with a variety of virtual learning and engagement options to keep our residents feeling connected. Offerings include opportunities such as streaming spiritual services, live concerts, lectures, virtual tours of museums, art galleries, interactive art, and music activities. We are also offering a host of wellness activities including guided meditation, yoga, and outdoor walking groups to promote positive well-being and help reduce stress and anxiety.
For those who are thinking about senior living, we are here for you. We offer virtual visits and learning and engagement options via Zoom, so you have the opportunity to see our communities and experience the lifestyle we offer without ever leaving your house! These are by reservation only, so reach out to your local community to find out what virtual experiences they’re offering this month.
We thank you for your cooperation in helping us to keep our communities healthy.
