Eventide Lutheran Home: Our county positivity rate still remains above 10%. With this, CMS does not allow for general indoor visits in the nursing facility. Therefore, we are utilizing this new visitor area just inside our building near the Main Dining Room. DIA has approved this area as an “outdoor window” visit since there is plexi-glass between the visitor(s) and resident. The door to this area is locked so it does need to be scheduled. If you would like to schedule a visit with a nursing facility resident, please call Morgan or Lynette in Social Services, Robin in Activities, or Amy Schultz at 712-263-3114, 24 hours prior. We are anxious to open our doors to general scheduled visits once our county rate drops.
Silveridge Assisted Living: Silveridge also has a new visitor area as well to ensure safe visits between family, friends, and tenants. This new visitor area is just inside our building near the Main Dining Room. This area has plexi-glass between the visitor(s) and tenant. The door to this area is locked so it does need to be scheduled. If you would like to schedule a visit with any assisted living tenant, please call Kim or Kara at 712-263-2639 24 hours prior.
As an assisted living facility, Silveridge follows a different set of regulations than the nursing facility and our visitation policy will change starting Monday. In summary, scheduled indoor visits will be allowed as long as this facility does not have a positive COVID-19 case. Tenants have been made aware of the change so please feel free to reach out to your loved one or a team member in regards to more details on this change.
We realize with continuous change and differences among facilities, it may be difficult to sort through. Please reach out to Administration if you have questions or would like to discuss further. You may also email Mindi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
