Update 7/25 & 7/26 - I am so excited to share our Christmas in July photos with you. I cannot thank everyone enough for the outpouring of love and support for our Christmas in July - every resident was able to receive a gift. Thank you to everyone who brought in a present(s) for your loved one and for those who donated many more. At one point my office was completely filled with presents and they just kept coming in. Starting tomorrow - July 27, 2020 - the front parking lot will be blocked off as the roofers will be completing this side of the building. All staff and visitors will have to go around the building towards the left. Right behind the front parking lot is the back parking lot. Please enter this door for check in process. Everyone must wear a mask when in the building and when walking to the visitor booth. This should take about a week and then we can reopen the front lot. Saturday reported an additional 1,438 cases of COVID and 0 deaths. Praise God for that. One of last weeks updates I shared that the state would now be focusing on resident testing. A late Friday night email came out stating the Ohio Department of Health is shifting gears and plan to retest staff and not residents at this point. The administration's thought process, for now, is staff testing will begin again on August 3 and then we will repeat the process every 2 weeks until eventually we will test staff every 10 days. I've had a few questions regarding visitation in Independent Living. While our county is a Level 2 we feel comfortable in allowing Patio Visits. We still recommend limiting your exposure to other people and wear a mask. If Summit County increases to a Level 3 or 4 then we will have to halt visitation again. Couple other things to keep in mind. If you travel to or from from one of the hot states as listed by ODH then it is recommended you self-quarantine for 14 days; we agree with this recommendation. In addition for visitation to occur the visitor must not live or work in a Level 3 or 4 County. There are screenings in place to monitor. Thank you for helping us keep the residents and staff safe. #stowglenstrong #stowglencares #allinthistogether
Update 7/23/20 - It is so hard to believe that July is almost over. As long as this year has been on one hand, on the other is feels like we're flying through. Today's coronavirus reported 1,444 new cases of COVID-19 with 21 death, both numbers greater than the 21 day average. Ohio is now in a statewide mandate for wearing masks and not just the red or purple alert levels. But the best news I'm sure is that Summit County is now an Alert Level 2. Alert Level 2 is defined as a an "increased exposure and spread. Exercise high degree of caution. Follow all current health orders." With this definition we will again allow Assisted Living visitation. You can sign up online at www.stowglen.com/visitors or call 330-819-0362. Visitation will continue at the previous established days and times. If you made a reservation before, it should still be in the system unless you cancelled it, If you would like to confirm please call 330-819-0362. Residents & Families of the Nursing Home - the best news in 4 months I'm sure. Scheduled outside visitation will begin on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. Initially there will be one visitation booth set up in the parking lot where you enter the green door. We will have our schedule completed tomorrow and will be able to accept reservations, you will have the ability to self schedule as well after the website is set up properly. Please call 330-819-0362 for reservations. Nursing Home visitation days will be Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Visits will occur at the top and bottom of established hours for 20 minutes, leaving 10 minutes for cleaning and sanitation. We are required to monitor the visitation so times are being finalized but will probably occur 9:30-11:00; 2:00-4:00; and 5:30-6. This will allow for 12 visitors, 4 days a week. Each resident can up to 2 visits per week. Husband and wifes can visit family together (if one is in AL and one in nursing - please sign up for the nursing home timeslot) Rules for AL and Nursing Home Visitation 1. All visitors MUST sign in 2. Complete the screening check in, please allocate time for this. 3. Masks must be worn by the resident and the visitor until they are separated by the clear protection barrier. 4. No touching, hugging, kissing or holding residents hands during visitation. 5. Nothing can be given to the resident during the visit, please continue to bring items to the front office for delivery. 6. Be respectful of your time slot. 7. No more than 2 visitors at a time 8. Must be 18 years and older 9. No visitation permitted if from one of the current states listed in the Governor's order requiring quarantine until after that quarantine has complete. 10. No visitation permitted if you live or work in an Alert Level 3 or 4 County. Please remember that visitation can and will be reviewed daily and can be revised at anytime depending upon the Governor's orders, County Alert Level, Facility COVID cases, Facility staffing levels, Facility ability to test individuals and the Facility's ability to obtain proper PPE. There has been so much confusion amongst staff, residents and families regarding the 'rules'. To help with clarification please refer to the chart below. On another note, Christmas in July is almost here. Santa will be visiting on Saturday and will have presents for all. His elves are on vacation so he could use a hand with extra presents if you want to bring something specific in for your loved one or send in extra "universal" gifts so we can be sure everyone gets a visit from Santa. #stowglenstrong #stowglencares #allinthistogether
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Scroll through to see some familiar faces. See some making tshirts, decorating face masks for tomorrow’s dress up event. Then others taken by the Christmas tree. My personal favorite is the one that says “my roommate did it”. Love all these residents.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas..... if you have any Christmas decorations, including trees, ornaments, wall hangings, etc that you’d be willing to donate please drop it off at the facility. Please place it in a bag or box with “Cindy” name on it. Thanks!!
