RiverCourt follows recommendations from state and federal health experts, including the CDC

On behalf of our residents, families and staff, RiverCourt Residences is following safety protocols for COVID-19 from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We have a communicable disease policy in place and every action we take and every policy we put into effect is with health and wellbeing in mind.

As recommended by the CDC our actions include, but are not limited to, the maintaining of all necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) for staff.

Any staff member caring for a resident who tests positive for coronavirus is wearing appropriate PPE. All Nurses, Resident Assistants, and Memory Care Activity Staff have been issued N95 respirator masks. Staff are provided with surgical masks, face shields, gowns, and gloves.

All staff are wearing surgical masks on every shift, and have their temperature taken before every shift. The Centers for Disease Control recommends all Americans wear face masks and all residents have been given a mask. Common surfaces are disinfected daily throughout the community in accordance with CDC recommendations. Social distancing is practiced by both residents and staff, and dining rooms have been closed in favor of room service meal delivery.  No visitors are allowed inside the community, except in the case of compassionate care.

As an additional precautionary measure, we have engaged the services of a professional cleaning company to thoroughly disinfect all common areas of all three neighborhoods. This deep cleaning is on top of our daily disinfection of commonly touched surfaces.

Our efforts to maintain safety, health and wellbeing are 24/7. We are here around-the-clock to answer any questions or concerns. Please know that as other advisories are made available by the CDC, we will implement recommendations and best practices to further mitigate any potential spread of coronavirus.

Report on our Residents

Dear Family and Friends,
On Monday, May 25th, Memorial Day, RiverCourt Residences will have a morning car parade that is tentatively planned for 11am and will include RiverCourt staff, resident family and Groton community members. Residents will be able to view the parade through their apartment windows and outdoors at locations that are ‘socially distanced’.

A reminder to everyone that we are still adhering to the State of Massachusetts guidelines in keeping everyone safe and healthy. Family members can visit with their loved ones via a closed window in designated areas. Once RiverCourt has word of restrictions gradually getting lifted then we will let everyone know when it will be ok to come in for a visit. Thank you and enjoy the nice spring weather.

Window Visits

Dear Families,
Even as we continue to adhere to all of the CDC guidelines, we would like to offer window visits to our residents and families. We would like to try and keep them with a 15 minute limit so everyone can have a visit that would like one. If you are interested in doing a window visit with your loved one please call the front desk to sign up for your time slot.

Skype with Your Loved Ones

Families and friends of RiverCourt Residences, we have just acquired an iPad that will allow you to video chat with the residents here. At this time we are able to do Skype and FaceTime video chatting. If you are interested please email Activities Director, Andy Donovan at adonovan@rivercourtresidences.com to set something up your time.

Thank you, stay safe and healthy!
