Living through a worldwide pandemic is not something most people would think possible in their lifetime, especially in this age of technological and medical miracles. Yet, for months now, the world has been under siege with what has been termed the “invisible enemy.” One of the major casualties has been the relationships between loved ones who must be separated during this time.
Restrictions on Visitation
In an effort to protect our elderly and at-risk residents, many establishments like Gianna Homes have had to put restrictions on visitation. We understand how difficult this is for our residents and for their families. Turning away family members, except in emergency situations, is not something we take lightly. It is with heavy hearts that we make these decisions, even though they are in the best interests of the families we serve.
The restrictions we must live by during this time protect not only your loved ones, but they also protect the team members who are here to serve them. In day-to-day care, our front-line workers not only have concerns for those they care for, but they must also handle concerns for their own family members.
Our First Priority
This novel coronavirus affects everyone. Medical and healthcare workers must contend with diminished supplies of protective gear while maintaining a high level of care for our residents. Despite the concerns facing them, these brave souls work day after day to ensure your loved ones get the care, encouragement, and reassurance they need during this time of isolation.
Trust that our staff at Gianna Homes will continue to proudly serve those who are entrusted to our care with the highest levels of skill, experience, and compassion. Our goal is to continue to bring the best of ourselves to our residents while adhering to the safety recommendations put out by the CDC and by local and state health departments.
The pinnacle focus of our care is to see that the residents of Gianna Homes remain safe and healthy. We understand the inconvenience this may cause in some instances, and for that, we apologize. We hope you understand that it is how we can keep those you love protected from this invisible enemy.
As always, please feel free to contact us if you have questions or concerns.
