Grand Lifestyle's Response to Covid -19

Extra Precautions are Now in Place

The health and safety of every guest is our first focus, but we also understand that loved ones and guardians are increasingly concerned by the spread of the Covid-19 virus, and the toll it can take on seniors and the medically compromised. We hope that the resources below will help to inform and reassure you as we face this challenge together.

Grand Lifestyles, which operates senior-care facilities throughout the Illinois Region, out of an abundance of caution is limiting visitation of guests and non-essential visitors at locations in response to growing concerns about the spread of COVID-19 — the disease caused by the coronavirus.

“While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 within these centers, the organization is taking necessary measures to protect vulnerable patients, and the communities it serves.

Dear Friends and Family,                 

 

We understand that it is difficult to not see your loved ones on a regular basis but in an abundance of caution and as recommended by the CDC and IDPH, we need to ask that you do not visit and that you do not take your loved one out of the community if avoidable.  We have made an effort to contact every family and we have found that most are very understanding and have asked how they can help.  The answer is simple, be patient.  We are all in this together and know that what has been put in place impacts your life but we want to make sure that it is limited to just an inconvenience.  With the steps we have taken, our community is the safest place for them.

​​The health and safety of our residents remains our priority. With the current situation surrounding the COVID 19 virus and the disproportional impact it could have on our population, we have opted to take the following steps in an effort to keep our community safe:

  • Continuous monitoring the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

  • Limit all visitors to essential personnel only.

  • Discourage our residents from going to congregate community locations.

  • Postpone all community outings.

  • Postpone all entertainers.

  • Consistent disinfection and sanitization of the community common areas and high contact surfaces

  • Increased availability of hand sanitizer

  • Screening all essential visitors with temperature and questionnaire prior to entry

  • Screening all staff at the beginning of every shift for fever and symptoms

  • Collect a baseline temperature and risk factor questionnaire on every resident

 

A couple of small things that will impact:

  • Our room cleaning schedule will be adjusted to accommodate an increase in common area sanitizing

  • All personal deliveries will need to go to the front desk and we will distribute them.

  • These plans are fluid as recommendations come from our 2 primary sources (CDC and IDPH)

 

Please refer back to this page, www.Grandlifestyles.com/updates for further updates.

 

For now, we are not sure how long this will last. We will update this page with any new information as it comes in. 

 

​I am so grateful to be part of such a great community with our staff, residents and families.  We will all get through this if we continue to work together.

 

Thank you
