Update From Administartor – August 10, 2020

Hello,

We continue to hope that you are safe.  I know, some of you are still dealing with power failures, internet and WIFI failures and trees down. Hopefully, you will be up and running soon.  The facility did have a tree fall across our driveway which took down several power lines. We were on generator for close to 2 days. Our email is also now up and running.

 

We continue with the outdoor visits. They must be pre-scheduled to ensure safe and healthy visits for you, the residents, and our staff.  It also allows our team to ensure your loved one is available and ready for your visit to make the most of your time together. These visits require appropriate PPE (masks) to be worn at all times and a social distance of 6 feet between you and your loved ones for the entirety of the visit. The specific guidelines and details regarding perimeter visits can be found on our website and Facebook page. If these restrictions pose issues for you please keep in mind that we continue to offer other visitation alternatives like Facetime visits. Please remember that the perimeter visits must be pre-scheduled to ensure safe and healthy visits for you, the residents, and our staff.  You can schedule a visit by calling Lynn at 203-364-3131 or emailing at recreation@newtownrhcc.com.

 

We are happy to report that we are currently COVID free! As we continue to maintain a COVID-free status, we will, hopefully, be able to reduce some restrictions under the guidance of the CDC and CT Department of Public Health.

 

As a reminder, our next “Town Hall” meeting is scheduled for Friday, August 14, 2020, at 1PM.  We encourage any residents and family members to contact us with any questions you have about the care we are offering. Our commitment is to be as transparent as possible and work to address any issues that arise. A reminder that resident-specific questions cannot be answered during these calls or on our Facebook page so please reach out to us directly if needed.

Please continue to stay safe and healthy! It is important to remember that it is still necessary to be cautious and aware that the risks of COVID-19 are still present.
