Dear Residents, Family Members, and Friends,
As we have been seeing rising coronavirus cases here in Massachusetts and across the country in the last several weeks, Cadbury Commons has decided to take some proactive step measures to protect our resident population:
While we will continue to allow visitors to the community we feel it is prudent to alter several of our current policies. Effective immediately:
- Indoor visits to resident apartments are now restricted to 30 minutes with no more than 1 outside visitor allowed into anyone’s apartment.
- All indoor visits must be completed by 7 pm sharp.
- The total number of visitors to our community on any given day cannot exceed 15. We generally see an average of 7-15 visitors daily.
*This does not include private aids, hospice nurses, or other health care providers.
- For compassionate care or end of life situations, visitors are limited to the resident’s room and must follow all former protocols. Decisions on these situations will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
- Visiting remains only from Tuesday to Saturday and no more than 3 times per week per resident family member
- Family members who want to take a loved one out or off property, we ask for your cooperation in calling ahead.
We will continue to screen all visitors for temperature and Covid Symptoms, require masks at all times, and require visitors to perform hand hygiene upon entry.
If anyone intending on visiting our community feels the slightest bit ill, we urge you to postpone your visit.
We will also continue to offer our designated shared indoor space (Library) by appointment. As you know supervised outdoor visits end this week.
Cadbury Commons reserves the right to adjust visiting restrictions going forward based on a range of public health metrics for our area, or guidance from a local public health or governing agencies.
*Just to be clear, at this time Cadbury Commons has no confirmed cases of Covid-19 in either our staff or resident population. We are simply taking these small steps out of an abundance of caution, as the vast majority of deaths in Massachusetts and across the country involve senior citizens.
Your understanding and cooperation are greatly appreciated.
