Our response to COVID-19
A letter to the Riverdale Center family:
In addressing the Covid pandemic, our priority at Riverdale Center continues to be the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff. We share your concerns and value the trust you place in us to care for your loved ones.
Therefore, we designed a multi-pronged approach that goes above and beyond state and federal Covid-19 executive orders and public health measures.
Riverdale Center's Wrapped in Care™
I. QUALITY OF LIFE
Ensuring our residents' mental and physical health by facilitating video calls with family and friends, engaging them with socially-distant activities and entertainment—while continuing to provide top-quality medical care with virtual doctor visits (Telehealth).
II. ON THE OFFENSE
- Safeguarding residents and staff by continuously training our team with the latest protocols, testing staff for COVID twice per week, and implementing PPE and sanitizing practices.
iii. SWIFT RESPONSE
- Reducing the spread of COVID-19 with steady disinfecting measures and creating specialized isolation units for suspected and confirmed cases.
Our facility currently has 2 residents and 1 staff members from the facility that have tested positive for COVID-19. These patients and all patients with presumptive positive symptoms, will remain in isolation/observation units. The center has been in communication with the affected individuals' family, physician and local health officials.
