Is it the Right Time to Move?
Many people and their families are questioning if moving to a senior living community is the right choice at this time? For many people, it is still the safest option.
When you consider the measures that senior communities are taking, such as enacting strict social distancing rules, implementing mask-wearing and other safety protocols, and the fact that residents do not need to leave for essentials, you or your loved one may be safer there right now. Long-term care communities also have several caregivers on staff, ensuring that residents will not have to go without care.
Prairie Ridge of Galena has been working very hard over the last few months to be able to provide anything and everything to residents safely within the campus to minimize exposure to Covid-19 like grocery delivery, pharmacy delivery, dry cleaning drop-off and pickup, assist with telehealth appointments with physicians, zoom meetings with family and friends, etc. In addition to the expansion of amenity and service offerings, the community has been following guidance from CDC and local health departments to help prevent transmission of the the virus.
"I'm very proud of our team here at Prairie Ridge of Galena! In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been able to quickly and successfully implement enhanced safety measures and procedures for our residents and employees while still providing exceptional service, care and company for the residents."
Megan Kaiser, Executive Director of Prairie Ridge of Galena
