Dear Families and Friends,

 

We are happy to report exciting news! We have been approved to move to Phase Two in CMS Phases and Tiered Mitigation, effective, Wednesday, February 17, 2021. This means that we can once again offer services that have been missed these last few months. Below is a list of the services we are starting with, along with some specific instructions/guidelines for each.

 

  • The dining room will be open for lunch starting Monday, February 17, 2021. Residents will be allowed to choose either an 11:30am or 12:45pm mealtime or, if they prefer, they may continue to receive lunch in their apartments. We can serve up to 20 residents per time slot.

  • Laundry rooms are open, and residents may reserve their weekly time starting today.

  • The van is now available for necessary medical appointments. The hours of operation will be 9a-3p on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Appointments must be cleared by a member of the nursing staff, as they must be medically necessary. We still have the option to video conference visits. Also, only 3 residents are allowed at a time on the van in order to practice the social distancing policy.

  • Hair Salon opens Monday, February 22. The stylist’s schedule will be Tuesdays and Thursdays with an occasional Monday afternoon and Saturday morning. At this time, perms will not be provided, but haircuts, styles, and washes will be provided. Residents can call the front desk to schedule.

  • Indoor visits with family and friends begin on Monday, February 22. Two members from the same household can visit for up to 30 minutes at a time. Children over the age of 12 are also invited. If pets are being brought in, they must be on a leash. The visitor must schedule the visit themselves so that they can be prescreened. You will also receive a phone call the day before your visit for a second screening.

  • Activities are back, starting with Bingo and Fitness. Ten residents at a time can participate. Courtney is working on the schedule and calendar, so stay posted for more information.

Of course, all COVID-19 safety policies will continue to be practiced, including mask wearing for all employees, residents, and guests; social distancing of at least six feet during meals, van rides, and visits; and proper hand hygiene.

 

We understand that the social opportunities are why many of you chose Evergreen Village as a home for your loved ones. We are so excited to bring these services back for them to enjoy!

 

Thank you!

Kris Loundenback, Director
and the Evergreen Village Coordinators

Family and friends of Evergreen Village,

We are cautiously thrilled to announce Evergreen Village’s movement into Phase 3, which includes the least restrictive environment of the Illinois Department of Public Health’s Reopening Guidance:

PHASE 3:

  • Indoor visitation may occur, unsupervised, in our community’s designated common area with six-feet of separation along with cloth face-covering/masking by visitors and residents. Please give us a call for further details! (309) 452-7300
  • In-apartment visitation is permissible for compassionate care and is considered on a case by case basis.
  • Outdoor visitation, unsupervised, is permitted.
  • Weather permitting, outdoor visitation is strongly preferable to indoor visitation.
  • Virtual visitation continues to be available to all residents via videoconferencing platforms.
  • Stylists/Salons are permitted.


Per the guidance of the McLean County Health Department, and in coordination with the recommendations of the CDC, IDPH, and CMS, our nurses are conducting COVID-19 mass testing for team members monthly. 


We continue to follow the direction of the local health department and IDPH; it is their continued recommendation to ‘shelter in place’ to control the spread of the virus. For our residents, this means staying in their apartment, and social distancing for any activity outside their apartment, such as attending lunches served in the dining room and enjoying the fresh air on the patio. We will continue to screen temperatures of residents daily and employees at the start of shift and mid-shift. Infection control and prevention procedures are common and routine in our community, however, heightened during this time. 


Please continue to visit this page to keep informed; I am also happy to take your calls and questions. 


Very thankful for the opportunity to share good news,

Greetings residents, families, and friends,

It is an ever-changing healthcare climate as the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) spread continues in our cities and across the country and world. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make caring for your loved ones our priority at Evergreen Village. We do understand the importance of timely communication and education and intend to provide regular updates regarding COVID-19. 

It is with heavy hearts that we share our community has had an employee test positive for COVID-19.  Privacy laws prevent us from sharing details with you, for example, names of team members or departments they work in. Thank you for your understanding as we preserve our team members’ privacy and dignity.

We can also share that we are in constant communication with the McLean County Health Department, following their guidance and ensuring the proper protocols are being followed to minimize the additional risk of exposure to our residents and team members. We regularly screen temperatures of residents throughout the day, as well as employees at the start and middle of a shift. Infection control and prevention procedures are common and routine in our community. For residents, this means wearing a mask outside of their apartment or when staff is in their apartment. We also continue to restrict visitors to scheduled, outside visits and restrict residents from leaving the property for necessary medical visits only. We ask for your assistance in emphasizing the importance of these measures with your loved one through your calls, visits, and emails. They truly love hearing from you!

Unless urgent, please use this link, https://www.evergreenslc.com/evergreenvillageslf/update, as I will be focusing on continuing to lead our team and residents through this uncharted territory. I realize how startling this communication may be; rest assured, we have never worked harder to protect your loved ones. We love them too.

Sincerely,

Kris Loudenback
