Morning Pointe COVID-19 Response Update
April 1, 2020
At Morning Pointe Senior Living, protecting the health and safety of our residents, families, and associates is our top priority—especially now as the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to shape our world. It is important that you know what Morning Pointe is doing to keep our resident communities safe.
Our number one goal is to prevent infection. We are working diligently with our associates to strictly adhere to all CDC guidelines on infection prevention through actions such as handwashing and sanitizing, as well as monitoring the health of residents and associates.
Currently, Morning Pointe has restricted visitation at all resident communities as required by state health agencies until further notice, with the exception of end-of-life situations.
Should the need arise, our corporate coronavirus task force has prepared an emergency response protocol to support our senior communities that is in full compliance with recommendations from the CDC and state health authorities.
While actively safeguarding our residents and associates from infection, we also recognize our residents’ desire and need for an active lifestyle. It is critical that we closely monitor resident mental health during this pandemic, and Morning Pointe has taken the following responsive measures:
- Encouraging the use of video conferencing technology such as Skype or FaceTime
- Frequent communication with residents and associates
- Providing meaningful engagement opportunities that follow recommended safe distancing guidelines
Morning Pointe Senior Living extends its thoughts and prayers to those who have been affected by this pandemic. You can find more information on COVID-19 from the CDC website.
