Covid-19

How We’re Dealing with Public Health Concerns Due to COVID-19

As the Coronavirus pandemic reaches a recovery phase, the health of our residents and staff remains a top priority. We are building on our enhanced safety and cleaning protocols to create an environment helps residents and staff manage chronic conditions, like heart disease, diabetes and COPD, based on the latest research into COVID-19 and its lingering effects. All our residents – current, new or returning – can anticipate receiving a high level of care based on guidelines established by the medical community and our own clinical experts.

What Are We Doing?

  • With resident health and well-being in mind, Robin Run is now requiring associates to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Associate vaccination will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among residents and associates in our community, as well as the community at large.
  • We are using our decades of senior-care experience and nationwide clinical reach to gain insights on how seniors experience COVID-19 recovery. In addition, we have worked directly with the CDC during the pandemic to keep them informed of the many impacts to seniors over the last 18 months.
  • Our clinical teams are trained to identify many post-COVID symptoms and what to monitor, potential interventions and when to notify physicians.
  • We have created dementia-specific post-COVID protocols in partnership with national experts to help those with dementia cope with the unexpected changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • We have created additional resources for enhancing a culture of emotional and social well-being for both residents and associates.
  • We are producing training materials to share with associates to help residents focus on self-care, including emotional well-being.

Friends and Family Are Welcome!

Family and friends are an invaluable part of our residents’ lives, and there’s nothing that can replace visiting a loved one in person. When state and local restrictions allow, friends and family are welcome to visit their loved one at our community.

What Cleaning Measures Are in Place?

Robin Run refined its long-established cleaning protocols for infection control specifically to target the COVID-19 virus, based on scientific and healthcare recommendations. We use products that are certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to both clean and disinfect and have been deemed effective against the virus that causes COVID-19. Associates are trained specifically on these products to understand usage and swell times (i.e., how long a product must be in contact with a surface in order to property disinfect it.)
