RiverCourt Residences follows the latest guidelines from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Massachusetts Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) concerning COVID-19. Protocols are in place to maintain everyone’s health and safety and to ensure healthy in-person visits. Face masks are currently required for all visitors while in our community’s public areas, and face masks may be removed during visits in the resident’s apartment if both parties are vaccinated. For unvaccinated visitors, social distancing and wearing masks will continue during activity programs and communal dining. Residents are allowed to leave the community and are not required to quarantine upon their return.
All our residents of RiverCourt Residences are at the heart of all we do here, and so it is important that we continue to offer in-person tours so that you can see for yourself what makes us the right fit for you. Being onsite here at RiverCourt Residences, gives you and your loved ones the opportunity to ask our staff and current residents what they love most about working and living here. And if visiting in person is not an option, our virtual visit options allow you to learn about our community from the comfort of your home.
RiverCourt Residences has implemented a mandatory COVID-19 staff vaccination policy, effective October 31, 2021, requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees.
All RiverCourt Residences staff have received training in Comprehensive Infection Control Policies and have been properly trained in disinfection procedures for all areas of the community from resident apartments to common areas and everywhere in between.
Staff wears appropriate PPE, and masks are required for all staff, residents, and visitors in public areas throughout our community at the current time. For the latest mask policies in place, we encourage you to consult with our Executive Director, Resident Care Director, Special Care Program Director, or Sales & Marketing Director. We will do our best to inform you as EOEA guidelines are updated going forward.
POLICIES ON NEW RESIDENT MOVE-INS
We have instituted a variety of procedures and protocols to facilitate resident move-ins while continuing to protect our community’s health and well-being.
- Obtaining your assessment prior to move-in is quick and easy, due to our longstanding relationships with hospitals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, geriatric care managers, physicians, and visiting nurse associations. Best of all, the potential resident assessment can be completed either virtually or in-person – whatever is easiest for you!
- Decisions on the admission of potential residents will be evaluated and determined on an individual basis following discussions with the Executive Director, Resident Care Director, Special Care Program Director, and Marking & Sales Director.
- All new Residents must be vaccinated for COVID-19. Proof of vaccination is required.
- All Residents are required to have a negative COVID test 24-28 hours prior to moving into the community, and proof of the negative test result is required. Testing can be done at a facility of choice, or at Duxbury House.
- RiverCourt Residences will follow guidelines from the CDC, DPH, EOEA, and the Board of Health for mask usage and quarantine procedures for residents that test positive or have been in close contact with an individual that has tested positive.
