Dear Residents, Families and Employees:

We continue to test our staff and personal care residents, and continue to have all negative results.  Our last date for the balance of our personal care residents and the remainder of the staff will be July 13.  We will continue to test new admissions to the health center and expect new admissions to personal care to be tested prior to admission.

As we work through the universal testing, we are also working on the detail around re-opening to visitors.  A copy of this process will be provided to you prior to the anticipated date to re-open.  The process will different than visiting prior to the pandemic.  I assure you that we are trying to make this as comfortable as possible and accommodating while still meeting the stringent parameters around face masks, social distancing, and “crowd control”.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions or concerns.

Warminster, Pa.

And these tours will align with CDC recommended safety protocols.

“Now more than ever, we recognize the need to protect the residents in our care while welcoming new members to our community,” says Shelley Ballet, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “Even during these challenging times, we take great pride in doing everything we can to promote wellness – both physically, emotionally and spiritually – among our residents and staff.”

Executive Director: Weekly COVID-19 Update July 9, 2020

Residents and Families,

The good news continues.  We haven’t had a Resident test positive since 6/18/2020 and the last time an Employee tested positive was 5/20/2020.  The five Residents who remain in our red zone are doing well and their transitioning out of this quarantine zone could begin as early as 7/13/2020.  Testing of all Employees and HCC Residents is scheduled for 7/15/2020.  Required testing of all Personal Care Residents is due to be completed by 8/31/2020.

Our plan for re-opening is included on pages two and three of this memo.  If there are no new cases from 7/15/2020 through 7/29/2020 and Philadelphia goes to completely green, we can begin looking at scheduled visits.  We are currently at a modified green.  A new case, as indicated in the plan, is defined as “Resident contracts COVID-19 within the facility without a prior hospitalization with the last 14 days”.

Apartment cleaning returns to the regular schedule for Independent Living beginning next week.

Please take care of yourselves, and I will be in touch again soon.

CURRENT PHASE:  Modified Green per Philadelphia County;

OPENING DATE:  TBD

Upper Moreland Resident Letter: 07-07-2020

Dear Upper Moreland Residents and Families,

I hope you all had an enjoyable July 4th Holiday Weekend!  I am sure it was quieter than July 4ths of the past; things are certainly more low key these days.  We continue to be COVID free for residents and employees at Upper Moreland and Burholme.  Everyone is doing a great job!  Please continue to wear your masks, wash and sanitize your hands and social distance.  All of these steps are clearly working in protecting you and in protecting our staff.

I have visited the dining room during dinner service. It was nice to see people returning to the dining room, especially with all of our new furniture and artwork in place!  Many of you were surprised to see that.  The number of reservations continues to be moderate and understandably, take out and the Bistro continues to be a preferred option.  We are taking baby steps with dining and will likely make some more changes with opening reservations in the near future.

Tomorrow we welcome visitors for Residents residing in Independent Living into the main building.  We are asking the following of these visitors:

  1. All visitors must wear masks at all times on campus.
  2. Visitors must enter and exit at the Main Entrance to be screened and sanitize before and after visiting.
  3. No more than 2 visitors at a time in an apartment.
  4. Visits must take place in the residents’ private apartments; no visiting in common areas.
  5. Please remind your visitors that there should only be 2 people in the elevator at a time in order to allow for Social Distancing.
  6. Visitors are not permitted in dining venues nor at the Bistro.
  7. Visitors are requested to limit the time spent on campus and there are no overnight guests permitted in the main building at this time.

For residents residing in Personal Care, please have your family call the front desk to schedule a Compassionate Care visit as the Department of Human Services is still restricting visitors.

For Independent Living Residents, please remind your visitors to abide by our protocols as we have them in place to keep you, your friends and neighbors, and our staff safe.  If there are any questions please call the front desk or contact me.

Welcome to your family and friends and enjoy spending time with them.

Be safe and be WEL!
