With the recent approval by the FDA of two COVID-19 vaccines, assisted living communities will be amongst the safest places to live for seniors in McKinney, Texas. Assisted living communities will have priority access to the vaccine for its residents and team members. The benefits and care of moving to an assisted living may largely outweigh the alternative of staying home.
Vaccine clinics have been scheduled with CVS Pharmacy to administer the vaccine to Texas residents and team members. Vaccination is the biggest step towards protecting our residents and team members to create a safer community.
Additionally, in our communities, residents have limited contact with outside visitors. The majority of visitors to our communities are health care professionals which prevent residents from having to travel in public. Policies are in place to maintain safe visitation from essential visitors as we understand that seeing family is especially important during these times. Visitors to our building are required to submit temperature checks, questionnaires, and must adhere to our PPE requirements.
Finally, since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been committed to increased disinfection of common areas. We continue to have staff dedicated to keeping our senior living community clean. From having priority access to the vaccine to socially distanced companionship to increased cleaning measures, we work hard to mitigate risks to help keep our McKinney residents safe in our communities.
