Updates

July 30, 2020

Greetings residents, families, and friends,

We want to update everyone about some recent changes that have happened at Evergreen Place.

Although we do not currently have an active COVID outbreak in our community, the Montgomery County Health Department has recommended that we temporarily suspend our current hospitality services. This is due to the increased COVID positive cases in the surrounding Montgomery County.

These hospitality services include small group activities and outdoor visitation. Please be confident we continue to meet the essential needs of the seniors in our community. As our situation changes and until the Montgomery County Health Department deems it safe to re-introduce, we will continue to shelter in place. For our residents, this means staying in their apartments. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

We ask for your assistance in emphasizing the importance of this measure with your loved one through your calls, virtual visits, and emails. They love hearing from you!

Please continue to use this link, https://www.evergreenslc.com/litchfield/updates to gain regular updates; however, I am happy to take your calls and questions at any time if urgent. Please rest assured we have never worked harder to protect your loved ones. We love them too.

Greetings,

We hope this update finds you well. We have some great news for today’s update.

We are now able to resume our few hospitality services consisting of small group activities and outdoor visitation. Our residents will again be able to enjoy socializing with their friends, in small groups and have the opportunity to visit with their loved ones in safe, coordinated outdoor visits.

Please call us at (217) 324 -1500 so that we may schedule your outdoor visit with your loved one. They do love to see you!

We remain vigilant in continuing to regularly assess temperatures and signs and symptoms of our residents throughout the day, as well as employees at the start of every shift and mid-shift. Infection control and prevention procedures continue to be frequent and routine in our community, however, heightened during this time. To attempt to control the spread of the virus, it is our continued recommendation to shelter in place.

Thank you all for your continued support and understanding, and please continue to use this link, https://www.evergreenslc.com/litchfield/updates for regular updates; however, I am happy to take your calls and questions at any time.

We continue to be in constant communication with the Montgomery County Health Department, following their guidance and ensuring the proper protocols are being followed in order to minimize the additional risk of exposure to our residents as well as our team members. We will continue to screen temperatures of our residents throughout the day, as well as employees at the start of every shift and mid-shift.
