The Importance of Senior Living Communities, Especially During a Pandemic - Part 1

Feature in Modern Health and Living

Understanding the measures communities take to keep our aging population safe is now more than ever vital to families and seniors around the world. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact all of our lives, those beginning to explore senior communities are finding the endless benefits of living in one.  If you are currently in the discovery phase, we have four important reasons to make the move. This week, we will start off by sharing the first two reasons...stay tuned for Part 2 next week!

1) Safety and sanitation remains a top priority    

When caring for the most vulnerable population, going above and beyond standard precautions is necessary. St. Camillus works closely with local and federal health officials along with the CDC and CMS and collaborates to create the appropriate guidelines in place for sanitation, visitation and socialization.  Between isolation wings, the mandatory use of personal protection equipment, daily employee screens and resident checks, visitation guidelines and increased sanitation protocols, St. Camillus has adjusted greatly to keep the safety of their residents a top priority. St. Camillus has increased sanitation measures while keeping visitation and socialization at top of mind.

2) Socializing safely

In addition to keeping our elderly population safe, senior communities are also committed to providing quality and meaningful programming, experiences and interactions.  Keeping residents engaged is imperative especially during the pandemic when there is a significant decrease in face to face interactions with family and friends. Many communities have engaged families with video calls, letters and televised programming.

St. Camillus has recreated programming to accommodate with social distancing restrictions yet still allow programming to encompass all 6 dimensions of their Revitalize Wellness program including: intellectual, physical, spiritual, emotional, social and community. The change in programming has allowed residents to embrace their creativity and engage in new ways.
