Stronger Together: COVID-19 Resources
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, and at Renaissance Villages, that is no different. As a premier assisted living and memory community, we dedicate ourselves to providing the best care for our residents. We hope you find comfort in knowing our management team is adhering to the direction and recommendations of the Center for Disease Control, the California Department of Public Health, and Community Care Licensing. Above all, our governing agencies and Renaissance Villages diligently work together to meet the best interests of all our residents and staff. As such we put together this COVID-19 Resources page to keep you up to date with what's going on at Renaissance Villages.
We implemented increased safety modifications to our communities, and residents and employees graciously adapted with understanding and flexibility. Our employees continuously receive in-service training on the importance of disinfecting, cleaning, and hand washing. In addition, we also recommend limiting their trips to stores and social distancing. Moreover, we are also screening employees and anyone entering the community.
Face Masks Encouraged
Under the instruction of the Department of Public Health, residents should only leave their apartments when it’s medically necessary. When residents do leave their apartments, we encourage them to wear a face mask at all times. As a result, we distributed face masks to residents and employees, and additional masks are obtainable at the front desk. Moreover, we are continuing to follow the CDC guidelines regarding monitoring residents’ health.
We thank you for understanding the measures we’re taking to protect the overall health of our residents. All visitors must make an appointment, and we currently screen all visitors with CDC-recommended COVID-19 questions and record their temperature. Visitors must provide proof of vaccination or documentation of a negative COVID-19 test that occurred within 72 hours or an at-home test performed on-site before each visit. The test results must be available at the time of entry to the community. If you cannot provide this documentation, you can still meet with your loved one; however, you must do so outdoors. Visitors must wear a mask and wash their hands.
- Physically distancing is recommended for all forms of visitation, and please continue to practice proper hand hygiene.
- Visitation is limited for residents with active COVID-19.
Residents may have two visitors at a time. Visitors are allowed in residents’ apartments but may not gather in common areas. In addition, we ask that visitors maintain 6 ft of the distance between all residents and staff. We recommend shorter visits indoors and opening windows during visits.
Outdoor visitation is preferred and provides a low risk of transmission. Masks are required when visiting with a loved one outdoors to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
To learn more about our visitor policy, please contact your respective community.
Outside the Community Visitation
Should residents choose to leave the community, it’s imperative to recognize that Coronavirus is still prevalent throughout the United States. We recommend residents continue wearing their masks, practice physical distancing and good hand hygiene, especially when outside of the community. CDC guidelines advise that vaccinated individuals can forgo face masks at outdoor gatherings unless in a crowded setting such as a concert or other venue. We recommend adhering to these guidelines when venturing outside the community.
Good Hand Hygiene
The CDC recommends washing hands for at least 20 seconds with hot water and soap. Need a timer? Sing or hum the happy birthday song twice through. We also recommend using hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol content. Please wash your hands after going to the bathroom and after sneezing, coughing, and nose blowing. In addition, please also do so before and after eating or providing care.
The CDC recommends maintaining six feet of distance between yourself and another person. In addition, the CDC also recommends avoiding physical contact (when possible).
Finally, have more questions about COVID-19 (Coronavirus)? We’re here to help! Please give us a call.
