What kind of visitation is allowed in Sunrise communities?
We are supporting visits in residents’ suites, common areas, and outside, depending on each community’s operations phase and as allowed by state/provincial and/or local regulations or guidance. Learn about state-specific visitation guidelines.
How is Sunrise handling the Delta variant?
To promote the health and safety of our residents, their loved ones, and our team members, we will continue to follow the evidence-based safety and infection control protocols that we have in place. In line with the CDC’s updated guidance, we are recommending fully vaccinated individuals resume wearing masks when indoors in areas of the country with substantial or high transmission of COVID-19 infection. Masks are required for visitors in all community common areas and are strongly encouraged even when in residents’ suites, regardless of vaccination status.
Are Sunrise residents and team members receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?
The vaccine has been made available to 100% of Sunrise communities in the U.S. In addition, COVID-19 vaccinations are a required and essential job function for all community team members in the U.S. We are supporting all residents and team members as they work to receive the vaccine.
Do Sunrise residents still need to wear masks and practice social distancing?
Masking and social distancing requirements will vary depending on community operating status, community vaccination rates, the vaccination status of each resident and visitor, and state and local regulations. Masks are worn in common areas and may be removed when fully vaccinated residents are together. Our team members are still required to wear a mask and use proper Personal Protective Equipment in our communities.
How are family members being updated and engaged?
It’s never been more important to communicate with our Sunrise families. We’re staying in touch with frequent emails, virtual town halls, and phone calls and encouraging transparent, two-way conversations. In addition, through our family engagement app, family members are able to conveniently view photos, videos, activities, dining menus, and more—helping everyone stay in touch and up to date. They can even share their own pictures and videos of important moments, such as the birth of a new family member. Learn more about our family engagement efforts.
Sunrise has done an outstanding job during this pandemic. I am amazed at the wonderful organization of the team of care workers, health providers and the caring attitude that is always there.
I appreciate the care the staff at Bedford Court has taken to keep residents safe during the pandemic. The communication was frequent and honest and clear. The staff were helpful and caring.
Keep up the great job you are doing keeping staff and residents safe through this pandemic. Special thank you for taking such good care of my mom.
I speak with my mom almost every day and have had a few face-to-face calls. I appreciate ALL that Sunrise staff and caregivers are doing to make my mother's residency at Sunrise as pleasant as practicable. It can't be easy!
