COVID-19

During the past year, the top priority at all Solera Senior Living communities across the U.S. has been the health, safety and security of our residents and staff. The COVID-19 pandemic presented us with unprecedented challenges, and we are greatly appreciative for the day-to-day support and dedication shown by our residents, families and team members as they followed the protocols set forth by local, state and federal health authorities.    While so many of our residents and loved ones have patiently held off on scheduling personal visits, offsite excursions, group gatherings, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations and other meaningful occasions, we are optimistic at the chance to restore a sense of normalcy thanks to the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccination.  Solera is pleased to announce that we are among the first senior living communities to receive vaccination prioritization thanks to the U.S. Government's Emergency Use Authorization of multiple COVID-19 vaccines. Additionally, in an effort to meaningfully increase safety and peace of mind, Solera has mandated that both residents and team members receive the vaccine (outside of exceptions for health or religious reasons).  Solera is targeting 90 percent-plus participation, well above the industry norms of 50-60 percent.  Solera team members, as well as our assisted living and memory care residents, have already begun receiving the vaccinations in the comfort of our communities — at no cost to them. Plans for the rollout of vaccination clinics at all of our communities are well underway, and we are in continuous contact with federal health authorities and designated pharmacies to ensure a smooth rollout of the vaccinations. As part of the vaccine prioritization, all of the Solera properties had their initial clinics scheduled for January 2021 in addition to offering ongoing clinics monthly through their preferred pharmacy.  While we are elated to near this vaccination milestone, we realize the importance of maintaining our diligence in preventing COVID-19. We will continue to follow the many safety protocols in place at our communities, including the use of personal protective equipment, rigorous testing as directed by local health authorities and enhanced cleaning measures. We will, as always, follow the direction of health authorities to ensure the wellbeing of all residents and staff throughout the culmination of this pandemic.  If you have any questions regarding Solera’s COVID-19 safety, prevention and vaccination protocols, please speak with your Health and Wellness Director or your Executive Director. ...

Aspyre has no known cases of COVID-19 among our residents or staff at this time. To help our residents and staff remain healthy, we’ve established precautionary guidelines that include limiting visitors. We strongly encourage all family members, vendors and non-essential personnel not to enter our community. These restrictions are in place to prevent community-associated infection or communicable disease transmission from those who may possibly be infected prior to becoming symptomatic. Signs and symptoms are similar to that of a common cold and allergies so it makes it difficult to differentiate.  Aspyre is following all Colorado Department of Health & CDC guidelines to protect our residents.  In addition to limiting visitors, Aspyre has implemented the following safety precautions: Screening of all visitors at the front desk before allowing entrance into residential areasEncouraging family members not to take residents out of the community where they may be at risk of exposure to the virus, and then potentially bringing the pathogen back to infect other residentsRoutinely applying hospital-grade disinfectant throughout the communityMandating that any staff member with symptoms stay home and self-quarantineTaking temperatures of all staff members at the beginning of their shiftsTaking residents’ temperatures throughout the day Cancelling all entertainment and outingsMandating that deliveries be dropped directly inside the vestibule, which is separated from the front desk area and the residential community   All Aspyre residents are under the watchful eye of our Community Wellness Director and registered nurse, Nancy Hewitt, who is coordinating the above health checks, which are carried out by medical technicians. We want you to stay in contact with your loved one.  If you have a concern about your family member, please call 970.372.5838 and ask to speak to an Aspyre medical technician, RN Nancy Hewitt or Executive Director Tyler Trum. We will do our best to get back to you promptly, but ask for your understanding during this extraordinarily busy time. Aspyre also has Skype video conferencing in place for families to communicate directly with residents. If you wish to set up a video conference, please call us at 970.372.5838. The health and safety of our residents and staff is paramount. Given the pace at which the disease is spreading and the health risks to our resident population, we believe that it is important to exercise significant caution. We are very sensitive to the impact on the family members and encourage anyone to contact us to discuss further if you have any concerns. Thank you for your understanding and supporting these precautions. I will send updates as they develop and get direction from the CDC. Sincerely, Tyler TrumExecutive Director ...
