We know that you may be concerned about the coronavirus and how it may impact us here at Seashore Gardens Living Center. Protecting your loved one’s health and safety is our highest priority, and I wanted to share the latest information.
At this time, we do not have any cases of COVID-19 in our Home. We know that our residents are typically more vulnerable to the virus and the disease it causes, which is why we are being proactive. We are closely monitoring the situation and are in regular contact with state and federal health agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Jersey Department of Health. We have mobilized a task force of senior leaders involved in every aspect of operations to manage and respond to evolving challenges presented by the COVID-19 virus. We’ve been working around the clock, using hospital grade disinfectants approved as effective against COVID-19. We’ve expanded our cleaning protocols focusing on high frequency touch points. We are following CDC protocols to the letter, and we have infection prevention and control plans in place.
For family members and friends, we ask that you do not visit Seashore Gardens Living Center if you have any symptoms of respiratory illness. This includes cough, fever, sore throat, runny nose and/or shortness of breath. We understand that connecting with loved ones is incredibly important, and we can make appointments for you to connect via Skype or Facetime.
Thank you in advance for your assistance. We will continue to provide updates as we learn more from the CDC and other organizations. If you would like read more about the virus, the CDC has an information page at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/summary.html.
While this virus is serious, we want to reassure you that we’ve seen and learned from others like it before. In past years, we have effectively protected our residents against the Swine Flu, the Bird Flu, Ebola and more. We remain dedicated to serving your loved one every day with the same commitment you’ve come to know.
