Working with Memory Care Patient

Memory Care

If you’re caring for a mother, father, husband, or wife with memory loss, you’ve probably noticed that their personality changes day to day, hour to hour, or even minute to minute. We don’t believe in “good days” or “bad days” when it comes to caring for those with memory loss. Our Memory Care program focuses on meeting a person where they are intellectually and emotionally at each point throughout the day.

Respite Care

For a lot of caregivers, taking care of their mom and dad is a full-time job. The idea of going out of town for a weekend or an unexpected short-term change in care needs, like doctor’s orders after being discharged from the hospital, are serious stressors for caregivers who already feel worn thin. If you’re a caregiver who needs some extra help for a few weeks or days, respite care might be the perfect fit.

A few updates and requests….

I am still waiting on the timetable for mass testing of residents and employees. As soon as I know more, I will send that update. My understanding is that all employees and residents will be initially tested followed by weekly testing of employees and testing of residents only if they leave and come back into the community.

The CO Department of Health has left it up to AL communities to determine isolation protocol upon resident return to the community following medical appointments and other outings. We feel confident that we can require a 3-day quarantine as opposed to the 14-day that has been in place thus far. We know that medical offices have strict protocols in place to prevent contraction or spread of the virus.

Regarding other outings, we still ask that residents follow the safer at home guidelines and wait to return to hair salons, shopping, and other outings that may increase risk. We want to be notified if residents are going out and will determine the isolation protocol on a case by case basis. A risk assessment of new residents will also determine isolation protocols upon move in.

If an employee goes out of state by air or ground transportation, they will be required to submit a negative Covid test before return to work. If that employee tests positive, they will need two consecutive negative tests before return to work. We will perform the test if we have the supplies, otherwise that employee will need to go to a designated testing site.

For memory care families, we ask that you plan and schedule your window visit outside of mealtimes. Now that we have two seatings for each meal to ensure social distancing, the best times for visitation is between 9:30 am and 11:00 am, 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm and after 6:00 pm. We also ask that you call and speak with a lead to ensure availability of the apartment designated for window visits.

Please reach out to me with questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Update from the Executive Director

Greetings all,

To date we remain Covid free in our community. I am grateful to be able to continue to share that good news. With your help in wearing masks, keeping your distance, quarantining after appointments, we are keeping the virus out of RCN.

I have had conversations regarding testing and current restrictions with state and local officials.

As far as testing, as a community with over 100 residents, we are on the list to receive test materials as soon as they become available. We asked for personnel to train our nurses to test, upon which they would administer the tests going forward.

It sounds like when the testing begins, it will take place every week for several weeks. All residents and employees will be tested. I have been told that everyone will need to consent, so when we receive the materials, you will be notified.

Regarding lifted restrictions, the State Health Department and Governor’s office are working on allowing a “48-hour pass” for visitation after a negative Covid-19 test.

Resumption of communal dining with distancing and salon services are both addressed in the same guidance and protocol document that was sent over to the Governor’s office yesterday. I have been told we should hear something soon.

We know this isolation is affecting the mental health of our residents. Please know that in addition to the medication and ADL assistance administered by our care staff, we as RCN employees are taking extra time to visit residents and make sure their social needs are met the best way possible during the restrictions.

Michelle is making Skype and Facetime calls almost daily. Please reach out to her if you have not already.

Thank you for wearing masks, keeping your distance during porch and window visits, and adhering to other CDC guidance.

We sure hope to get back to some sense of normalcy soon and I will update you with information as soon as I become aware.

In the meantime, do not hesitate to call or email with any questions or comments you may have.


Mary, ED
