How Alcoeur Gardens Has Managed the COVID-19 Crisis
Coronavirus pandemic and the effects of COVID-19 have had a devastating effect on seniors, especially in nursing homes and memory care facilities. During the pandemic, the numbers of who have been affected were devastating. Alcoeur Gardens was certainly not unaffected, but both homes are now COVID-19 free for both residents and all staff. We wanted to share with you how we have been handling pandemic life in our homes.
Small Numbers – Both of our locations are small homes with only nineteen residents in each, all with private rooms, unlike most memory care facilities. With such small numbers we can better protect our residents and staff.
Visitors – Visitation is permitted in our facilities. You must complete a screening upon arrival before entering the facility and masks must be worn. Please call to notify the facility of the time and date you will like to visit your loved one at 732-244-1915.
Amazing Staff – Our three to one ratio has remained the same throughout the entirety of this pandemic. With our amazing and loyal team, they have gone above and beyond at every chance to care for our residents. Covid-19 testing is being implemented to ensure safety for all regardless of vaccination status. Our staff also completes the COVID screening upon entering the facility.
Healthy Diet – As always, we believe that a healthy diet and good nutrition helps to not only promote overall health, but to combat cognitive decline. While the pandemic has been going on, we have upped our menu with even more vitamin rich foods, as well as immunity boosting healthy drinks.
