New Guidelines In Place For Visiting Our Residents
We have new visiting guidelines effective June 23 at Villa St. Joseph and Marymount Place. Despite Gov. DeWine lifting visitor restrictions in facilities, we are still mandated to follow CDC and CMS visitation requirements.
Visiting hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. Avoid visiting your loved ones during mealtimes and visiting in dining rooms. If you have a special circumstance, then please call and we will try to accommodate within the CDC and CMS guidelines.
Groups larger than three (3) people must make an appointment. Visitors may bring residents food BUT visitors CAN NOT eat with residents. Residents who are not vaccinated and were admitted withing 14 days or are COVID positive, may not receive visitors unless a compassion care visit is scheduled.
All visitors must wait at the door and will be health screened (temperature and health questions) prior to their visit. All items on the information sheets must be completed in case there is a COVID case, and we need to contact you about a potential exposure.
Visitors are required to wear a mask always covering mouth and nose. No wandering throughout the building. Handwashing must be conducted when necessary.
For all compassion care visits, or if your loved one remains in quarantine or is COVID positive, you must wear a surgical mask, face shield, and gown while in their room. Sanitize hands before and after leaving the room.
Social distancing of six (6) feet between you and others in the building must be maintained. If the resident and visitors are fully vaccinated, then they can choose to have close contact with you.
If there is a roommate present, then the facility will obtain consent from the roommate to allow visitors in the room. Should one of the roommates decline, then visits will occur in common area. Please be patient as we as it may take us some time to get consent from all residents or responsible parties.
Outdoor visits in designated areas are encouraged when weather permits. Visitors can take Residents outside. Please social distance.
Compassionate care visits can be scheduled for residents who are at end of life, grieving, need encouragement to eat or drink, or has emotional distress.
If you prefer to visit your loved one in a common area, then call for an appointment.
Visiting can become limited if the facility develops new COVID cases, or if the building becomes too crowded not allowing for social distancing.
If you have questions, then please ask one of our managers or the receptionist. We will place signs reminding what PPE is required in certain areas.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
