October update. Residents are enjoying safe social distancing activities again on campus. Utilizing proper safety guidelines, Bingo games, Stretch exercise, movie watching and other fun has returned to campus living. Outdoor BBQs and Grab & Go foods in the Bistro are all part of the steps to help residents feel more connected.
A walk in the Japanese gardens or along the nature trail is always a refreshing break as well. The 29 acre campus has many places to find outdoor enjoyment in a beautiful setting.
Original post and May update. In order to protect residents, staff and others of our Beaumont Commons, Dearborn community during the COVID-19 outbreak, we are following guidelines as recommended by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help reduce the potential of spreading the virus.
We are restricting visitors to our campus with the exception of essentials-only visitors. For family members making deliveries to residents, items may be dropped at our entry, and we will gladly deliver them.
Signs are posted on entryway doors to notify visitors of the current policy, which can change daily, and we are actively screening individuals, including staff, who need to come into our community.
As always, any restrictions are subject to change.
In addition to staff training and safeguards, residents are being advised about the steps they can take to help prevent the spread of the virus including strict hand washing procedures. We will continue to stay up to date with CDC recommendations.
As we continue to adhere to the sanctions of the CDC, we encourage all to do those little things to help our residents feel connected. You can truly make a big difference with every virtual touch.
