We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
People across the globe are navigating through their response to COVID-19, and this of course includes senior living providers like Sunrise, which are committed to protecting the health and safety of all community members – residents, team members, partners, and friends.
Building and maintaining close connections with others is important for everyone. Whether it’s with family members, coworkers, or friends, social engagement can help all of us, even introverts, live a full and healthy life.
When local musicians heard their friends at Sunrise of Dublin might need a little pick-me-up, they loaded up their equipment and worked with the community team to set up an outdoor concert for residents and team members.
While remaining isolated is not something typically encouraged for seniors, there are times when it’s a must. The rapidly spreading outbreak of the novel coronavirus, also referred to as COVID-19, is one such time.
Family caregivers often find themselves navigating unchartered waters. Some learn how to change dressings on a senior’s wound after surgery, while others master tasks like grooming and bathing. Adult children may even learn how to protect a loved one’s dignity when dementia is trying to rob them of it. The newest challenge for family caregivers is among the most serious— the novel coronavirus.
Sunrise continues to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously, and the health and well-being of our residents and team members remains our absolute top priority. Sunrise leaders are closely monitoring the constant flow of updates from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and other government and health authorities to continue supporting our communities. We have enacted several changes to our operating procedures in order to help keep our residents and team members safe.
