As the nation continues to navigate the challenges faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, Richmond Place has prioritized the health and well-being of our residents and team members.
With the support of our management company, Life Care Services, we have expanded our infection and disease prevention protocols based upon the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention guidance for long-term care communities. This includes enhanced cleaning protocols, screening and restrictions for visitors and new residents, social distancing practices and increased training for team members.
And through it all, we have focused on providing the experiences Life Care Services communities are known for. We remain dedicated to serving our seniors, first and foremost.
We recognize the big moments. Big moments deserve to be recognized, no matter what’s going on outside our doors. That’s why we’re taking time to celebrate the big moments in residents’ lives, like birthdays and anniversaries. While a virtual party can’t replace an in-person gathering, it does remind residents that we can always find ways to celebrate positive moments during this time.
We honor daily routines. We know residents miss the little moments in the day that bring people together, like morning coffee or cocktail hour. Coffee deliveries and socially distant cocktail carts are just two of the many ways our community ensures residents still get to enjoy these routine-but important-activities.
We appreciate each other’s company. It’s hard to be apart from friends and family, but technology has given us dozens of ways to turn life’s moments into virtual experiences. We recognize the activities residents typically look forward to and are turning them into virtual or socially-distanced events, providing the opportunity for meaningful connections daily.
We encourage physical and mental wellness. Staying active – both physically and mentally – is essential to emotional well-being. From streaming exercise classes to setting up reading or pen-pal programs with local school children, we are dedicated to helping our residents stay active and connected.
Rest assured, at Richmond Place, Experience is Everything. We remain inspired by the many ways our community team ensures residents feel connected and cared for as we all learn to adjust to this “new normal.”
Community Reopening Update:
Richmond Place will continue to work in partnership with Life Care Services as well as local, state and federal government agencies to prioritize the safety of our residents. Our dining venues are now open for socially-distanced dine-in opportunities. We are scheduling outdoor connection opportunities on our private patio. We welcome the opportunity to provide virtual visits to those wanting to connect with a loved one or view more about life at our community.
Richmond Place Hosts first COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic
LAST UPDATED: January 10, 2021 at 9:30 AM EST
On January 5, 2021, the first residents at Richmond Place participated in the first of three Covid-19 Vaccine clinics held on-site at the community. Through a partnership with Walgreens, our residents and staff received priority access to the vaccine, leading a strong step forward for our seniors and team members to continue to focus on resident safety during the pandemic.
In December, as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines received emergency approval for distribution, Walgreens partnered closely with our management company, Life Care Services® to prepare for on-site clinic opportunities in which residents and staff can receive both doses of the critical vaccine. This clinic marks the first of the three opportunities to receive doses of the vaccine.
Future clinic dates will align with the necessary dose timing, as indicated by the vaccine manufacturer. We are proud to provide priority access to our residents and look forward to sharing future updates with residents and families on all anticipated clinic dates as they become available.
Call us today to learn how you or a loved one can receive priority access as a resident at Richmond Place prior to our second clinic date in late January!
