The policies that we have put into place have proven to be effective in mitigating the risks associated with COVID-19. This includes:
- 6 feet social distancing
- Mandatory face coverings/PPE for all SMMC staff
- Staff temperature screenings at the beginning of each shift
- 3x a day daily resident temperature screenings
- Universal testing protocols
- Increased daily sanititation of high-touch point surfaces
- Hand sanitizer stations
- Limited visitor policy
- Quarantine period protocols
We have been closely monitoring the CDC, DOH, and DHS for daily guidance and have adjusted our protocols to ensure resident safety. We have partnered with CVS Omnicare have completed our Vaccine Clinic.
Our pharmacy partner, Phoebe Pharmacy, is currently in the process of finalizing their vaccine clinic program and we are looking forward to future access to the COVID-19 vaccine. In the meantime, SMMC staff will help new residents who did not receive the vaccine schedule and transport to a local clinic site.
South Mountain Memory Care is currently conducting limited visitation. Please call 610-965-7662 for more information on our visitation policies.
Research shows that Smaller is Safer. Unlike larger senior living facilities, Small-House Model facilities have "not had to disrupt their residents' lifes quite as much when implementing infection control measures", and evidence suggests that small-house facilities are better equipped than larger facilities to prevent COVID-19's spread. South Mountain Memory Care's Small-House Model has allowed us to make the necessary adjustments to successfully navigate through this pandemic. We are confident that the measures we have taken have drastically reduced the risk in spread. Read more HERE
