Dear Pine Grove Crossing Community,
We are providing you an update regarding our community Covid-19 status. As we mentioned in yesterday’s letter, we were awaiting results from Tuesday’s testing of residents. Based on those test results, three additional Memory Care residents and one associate were identified as positive for Covid-19.
We will continue with testing of all residents and associates twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Fridays, over the next few weeks.
All residents in Memory Care are still considered in isolation with all care being delivered by associates in full PPE. No Memory Care associates are crossing over to the Assisted Living. We are closely adhering to all recommendations from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Tri-County Health Department as well as those of our Medical Consultant, Dr. Gagandeep Singh. We have placed a large PPE order to ensure proper supplies are on hand and will receive those supplies this week.
As we indicated previously, all outdoor visitation for the community is on hold. The Assisted Living dining room will remain closed until further notice and we have suspended small group activities. All residents are encouraged to stay in their apartments. Please consider planning a window visit or Facetime call with your loved one to stay in touch during this time.
Please remember that you can always check our Hotline for regular updates and those can be heard at (720) 874-9097. If you have any further questions, please reach out to Pine Grove Crossing’s Executive Director, Iva Prinsen, at (303) 996-8000.
