Assisted Living Residents and Staff Start Receiving the COVID-19 Vaccine

 

Residents of Central Florida’s assisted living communities are scheduled to begin receiving the vaccine this month. According to CDR Maguire, an emergency services company that was hired by the state to handle vaccinations for assisted living communities, contractors will be giving the vaccine in different counties each day of the week. Many have already begun the official rollout of the covid-19 vaccine as well.

 

As Senior Advisors who work closely with Assisted Living communities, we remain up to date with this information as well. While they have their own individual protocols, each community in Central Florida is set to receive the vaccine from distributors in the month of Jan and Feb. Many of them have already received the first dose and are waiting for the second dose to arrive.

 

Staff and residents will also be the first to receive the vaccine. While many communities are not requiring staff members to receive the covid-19 vaccine, they are highly encouraging it. It is up to the individual company to decide if they will mandate all staff members to get vaccinated. However, information regarding the covid-19 vaccine is provided to employees from the assisted living to make an informed decision on the matter.

 

North Star Senior Advisors also had the pleasure of discussing the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in Senior Living communities in Centra Florida with Josh Freitas from Certus Premier Memory Care. Certus is a memory care community that care for those with Alzheimer’s and other related Dementia’s.

  1. The overall impact of vaccinations in Senior Living

 

  1. Logistics and protocols on how Senior Living communities are approaching the vaccination of their residents and staff members.

 

  1. How Certus is approaching the vaccination for those individuals with dementia.

 

  1. And more!

 

 

As we continue to fight against the virus and ensure the safety of residents, seniors and staff members at assisted living communities, we will ensure we are providing families with accurate information to also make an informed decision regarding senior living. We know this is a very sensitive time so we will not only walk you through the process but work as your advocate every step of the way.

 

With the distribution of covid-19 vaccines across all of Central Florida’s senior living communities, many families have peace of mind their senior loved ones may no longer have to isolate in their homes. Typically, once a senior moved into their new home, some communities required seniors to isolate for a certain number of days. Many families and seniors are hoping the wait is over and we may be able to put this to rest.

 

Visitation protocols in assisted living communities have not yet changed since the last update from the Governor.  Currently, families still have to make an appointment to see their loved one and must wear the proper PPE while also getting their temperature checked upon entry. The duration of the visit is usually no more than an hour at a setting the community appointed as the visitation area. This may all change now that the covid-19 vaccine has arrived.

 

Only time will tell what the future holds. At North Star Senior Advisors, we remain vigilant in helping seniors locate independent living, assisted living, and memory care options in Central Florida at no charge. We will ensure all of your questions are answered surrounding the vaccine and share protocols for interested communities.
