COVID-19 Update

March 10, 2021

Dear Residents, Families and Partners:

We believe many of you have heard the Texas Governor’s announcement that he is lifting COVID related restrictions throughout the state as of Wednesday, March 10.  We are sure you all have questions about how this impacts the possible “re-opening” of our Communities.  

In the Governor’s Executive Order GA-34, it states that senior living facilities should continue to follow guidance from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) regarding any visitation and should continue to follow infection control policies and practices issued by HHSC.  Therefore, we do not currently anticipate any changes to our current practices.  Our staff will continue to wear masks while around residents and practice the COVID related infection control procedures and the COVID related staff and resident assessments that have been in place for the past year. As an Independent Living Senior Campus, we ask that each of you do what you feel necessary to prevent the spread to your fellow residents, families and neighbors.

Please continue to utilize social distancing, frequent hand sanitizing and washing and mask when in group settings.

We will communicate any changes, based on guidance from the TX HHSC and local health departments.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to keep our residents safe.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Bobbie Dusek

Executive Director

Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
