Comprehensive Health & Safety Protocols in Place

All RiverCourt Residences staff have received training on Comprehensive Infection Control Policies. Staff wear face masks, other appropriate PPE, and engage in proper handwashing hygiene and social distancing. Staff are screened daily according to state and federal protocols. Staff have been properly trained in disinfection procedures for resident apartments, common areas, including common restrooms, staff lounges, offices, and commonly touched surfaces. Alcohol-based sanitizers are readily available throughout the community.

Policies on New Resident Move-ins

We have instituted a variety of procedures and protocols to facilitate new resident move-ins while continuing to protect our community’s health and well-being. •Any assessment of new residents will include a COVID-19 test, among other requirements to confirm the resident is COVID-free. •New residents who are COVID-free will not be quarantined. Temperature and oxygen saturation levels will be tested daily and residents will be monitored for any symptoms of the virus for 14 days. •Potential residents that test positive will be admitted once their quarantine outside of our community is completed, with the stipulations that they are symptom-free for at least 72 hours without the use of analgesics and that their COVID-19 test result is negative.

Virtual Screenings/Virtual Tours

Obtaining virtual assessments is quick and easy, due to our longstanding relationships with hospitals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, geriatric care managers, physicians, and visiting nurse associations. With today’s technology, we don’t skip a beat when touring individuals and families. Virtual Tours using Face Time, Skype, or Zoom let everyone discover our beautiful private apartments, gracious common spaces, and lush outdoors.

Visitation

Outdoor visits are now permitted, according to the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA). Strict infection control protocols are in place to maintain everyone’s health and safety and to ensure healthy in-person reunions.
