The Heritage Downtown Active Senior Living Apartment Homes in Walnut Creek, CA, has just announced they have had zero cases of COVID-19. With over 100,000 positive cases of the coronavirus in the United States to date, their announcement is both significant and reassuring to the senior citizens who reside at The Heritage Downtown, their family members, as well as the Walnut Creek community.
“Our staff has gone above and beyond to carefully follow the CDC, State, and County guidelines by putting into place stringent safety protocols that protect our senior residents. Our persistence and determination to keep our senior community safe has paid off, and we couldn’t be more relieved by this”, says Jenny Shively, Community Relations Director.
The Heritage Downtown keeps coronavirus safety protocols a priority throughout the day - from start to finish. Some of their daily safety routines include:
- Diligently following CDC, State, and County Guidelines.
- Staff member’s temperatures are taken daily.
- Wearing masks and gloves.
- Sheltering in place and social distancing.
- Limiting visitors to “essential visits” only.
- Staff members answer a COVID-19 screening questionnaire.
- Thoroughly clean and disinfect the property throughout the day.
- Delivering healthy meals to its residents in their apartments.
When it comes to preparing healthy meals for their senior residents, they have certainly taken it to the next level. Culinary excellence and farm fresh dining are enjoyed onsite at their very own Newton’s Restaurant. With an ongoing focus on health and nutrition, their Chef JV uses ingredients obtained from local sources - the Walnut Creek Farmers Market and their on-site Chef’s Garden. Newton’s Restaurant emphasizes the fresh cooking philosophy, which is serving locally sourced produce and thoughtfully prepared farm to table meals.
The team members of this San Francisco Bay Area senior community ensure that they maintain a high level of comfort and familiarity while putting their safety precautions into place. “This is an uneasy time for everyone, but more so for those individuals who may be more vulnerable. So not only do we strive to protect our older adult residents physically, but also take steps to keep their spirits high”, states Shively. The caring staff at this Walnut Creek retirement home mitigate the risk of contracting COVID-19 while continuing to provide their 55+ residents with essential programs and activities such as these examples:
- Providing mentally and physically enriching activities to residents via Zoom to stay busy and connected. This includes fitness classes, discussion groups, independent film links, and more.
- Organize weekly special events for their senior residents that are presented to them at their doorways - happy hour, ice cream, birthday cupcakes, crossword puzzles, contests, and the like.
