New Federal Directives to Protect Cappella Grand Junction Residents

News

Posted: March 12, 2020

We are now implementing new Centers for Disease Control (CDC) directives as well as regional health suggestions and have upgraded to Restricted Status access for our community during this heightened COVID-19 situation. This means that no visitors will be allowed into the community at this time unless they are part of the required care team for an individual resident. Compassion visits may be accommodated for loved ones of a resident who is actively in an end of life situation. Such visitors will be screened and their temperatures are taken before entering the community.

Additionally, we will no longer host-dining services in our dining rooms starting with breakfast services on 3/19. The resident will have the option of coming to the dining room for a “grab and go” meal or they can choose to receive their meals in their apartments. Life enrichment group activities are also canceled at this time.  Individual life enrichment programs are being implemented.

We know this is difficult news for families and residents. We are doing everything we can to ensure residents are well cared for, but also that they continue to have joy and purpose during these restrictions. These measures are an attempt to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Social distancing and isolation are the only proven way to stop the spread of the virus. We will work with families to help them connect with their loved one via technologies as Face-time, Skype and video conferencing.
