Standards of Safety

We Prioritize Safety

By taking a multifaceted approach to preventing the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses, we have made sure that our residents are as healthy as possible. We use routine electrostatic cleaning for their needlepoint bipolar ionization (cold plasma) system which is known to kill bacteria including those associated with infection while also providing protection against future exposure through HEPA air scrubbers installed in all ventilation pathways throughout each facility. It’s important to use this kind diligence when it comes down to protecting our residents.

Our Partnership with Experts

In the early stages of this pandemic, we developed and implemented industry-leading protocols to ensure our best opportunity for disease prevention. Our collaborations include partnering with university experts in epidemiology as well as community based clinical care providers such as SPICE while also following state guidance from CDC.

Some of Our Additional Safety Measures Include:


Following all guidance and requirements for state and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) to ensure optimal patient, family and staff safety


Residents are monitored and screened regularly


Teammates and guests wear masks throughout their shifts/visits when required
