We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
Two years ago, when much of the world shut down with the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sunrise team members stepped up in such a significant way.
The holidays have arrived. Along with the excitement about gathering again with family and friends, the emergence of the Omicron variant introduces the latest health threat to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic: a potential for rapid surge of COVID-19 cases in the coming days and weeks. The Sunrise leadership team continues to follow and share expert guidance from Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO), and other state/provincial and local health authorities in an ongoing effort to keep our residents, team members, partners, families and friends safe. Until Omicron is fully understood, the CDC recommends using all appropriate resources available to protect yourself and others.
There’s no denying the COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on people’s lives. And it’s not just fears about our physical health and safety that makes the days so difficult. The emotional rollercoaster we’ve all lived through as the coronavirus surges and recedes has been significant.
Flu season is upon us and brings with it complexities given the ongoing pandemic. With the abundance of information circulating around these questions, the Sunrise leadership team continues to turn to expert guidance from organizations like the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and the World Health Organization as we navigate the newest layer of education related to COVID-19.
Sunrise Senior Living remains prepared to keep our residents, families, and team members safe and informed with the most current information regarding COVID-19 and the Delta variant. We firmly believe that receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is the most effective method to combat the spread of this deadly virus. In addition to providing the COVID-19 vaccine to our residents and team members, our infection control protocols remain in place.
A message from Michelle Minor, Vice President of Engagement and Program Services, about the "new normal" for Sunrise programming, events, and activities as we welcome Brighter Days.
After more than a year of challenges, changes, and disruptions to our daily lives, we’re thrilled to welcome brighter days at our communities! Sunrise has recently rolled out new operating guidelines, compliant with the latest guidelines, that will allow for more activities and in-person visits, which we know our residents and families have longed for.
An update from Sue Coppola, Chief Clinical Officer, and Jenifer Salamino, Chief Operating Officer, regarding updates to visitation, dining, and activities at Sunrise with the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine.
