Resident Item Drop Off Updates :

We cannot thank you enough for the creative ways you have found to care for your loved one during this time. We find great joy in delivering the items and sharing in your loved one’s delight as they receive these deliveries. Given the variety of times that items are being dropped off and the increasing number of perishable food items, we are finding ourselves running often throughout the course of the day for these deliveries. For this reason, we will be implementing specific delivery times throughout the day and evening. These delivery times will be 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., and 6:00 p.m. Please continue to drop your items off at the area designated within the main lobby of the Haven and we ask the following:

  • Please have items labeled with the resident’s name and room number.
  • Please have any food items in a sealable and disposable container. We will no longer be returning containers for reuse.

Team Member and Vendor Screening:

We also implemented additional screening protocols for all team members, vendors (working on necessary equipment), lab/x-ray technicians, and hospice staff. In addition to having their temperature checked, all are screened as directed by CMS.

Recommendations:

1.       Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your face, eyes and nose. Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
2.       Consult a healthcare provider if you experience signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath, and sore throat.
3.       Maintain appropriate social distancing and wear a mask when in the presence of others.

Updates:

This is an ever-evolving situation and we will continue to communicate as often as possible.  Please also utilize the main Valley View Number (717)935-2105 for updates.
