Coronavirus and Visitation

June 26, 2020

Dear Residents & Family Members:

We realize that in the midst of a pandemic it is still important for family and friends to visit and socialize. With that in mind we have set up visitation on the outside courtyard on the East Side of the building for Assisted and Retirement Residents and in the Memory Care Courtyard for Memory Care Residents.

We need to continue to be cautious and follow all rules set to make these visits possible. I have outlined below the rules we are asking you to follow during these visits:

Visitation Education/Rules: Daily 9 am to 7 pm by Appointment Only

  • Everyone must screen at the front entrance BEFORE a visit. (This includes a temp check, asking questions of possible symptoms, asking questions of possible exposure.)

  • You must do a 20 second Hand Hygene with Alcohol Based Rub (ABR) and wear a mask.

  • Social distancing must be maintained during the visit. This always means 6-10 feet must be kept, ensuring safety for the resident(s) (No touch rules apply.)

  • We will do up to 4 visitors per visit.

  • You must call and make an appointment; You will not be allowed to visit if you “just show up.” We must be mindful of others and their needs and visit appointments. Appointment times will be 30 minutes per visit.

  • Do Not Come if you are Sick or If you have a known exposure! If you are not sure of these two conditions, please call and speak to a manager or infection control nurse at our facility if you are in doubt or have any questions.

  • We have the right to refuse visitation if we feel that criteria set by the facility is not being met by residents and their visitors.

Sincerely,

Lauri Yelenich

How we’re monitoring the Coronavirus
(Covid-19)
And taking precautions

May 12, 2020

It is hard to believe we have completed our eighth week in lockdown due to COVID-19. Although the Governor has started with Phase 1 of relaxing the safeguards in place, Big Sky Senior Living will continue to be on lockdown.

We have been following the recommendations of the CDC and will continue on the same path until the CDC advises that we can start to relax some of the necessary precautions. These precautions have worked for us as we have zero cases of COVID-19 in our building to date. We will do everything possible to keep it that way, but the risk of exposure is still very real.

Some of what we have been doing in these eight weeks following the lockdown are;

  • cancelling communal dining

  • cancelling all public or non-essential group activities and events

  • limiting visitors to essential medical visits

  • cleaning and disinfecting of common areas and shared facilities

  • encourage personal protective measures for residents and staff

  • screening essential visitors and staff each and every time they enter our building.

I appreciate your understanding and support of the measures we have in place to keep your loved ones safe. These are difficult times and the separation from your loved ones is difficult but what we are doing is working and we will be continuing these safeguards until further notice.

If you would like to communicate with your family member via electronic methods, our Activity Department would be happy to help with that. Call Kelly Masom at 406-494-4900 and Kelly will set that up for you.

Our Front Desk is staffed 7 days a week from 6 am to 8 pm for any pick-up or drop offs that you need to make. We have volunteers that have done shopping or errands for residents and I thank our volunteers for that help. I also thank our staff for working hard to keep our residents safe.

Thank you again for your support in these uncertain times. I will continue to communicate with you as changes occur. Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Sincerely,

Lauri Yelenich
