Update: March 19, 2020

We want to thank our families, health care providers, and staff who are working so hard to comply with our visitation limitations. I assure you this is not easy for anyone.

We are increasing our Facebook postings so you can see your loved ones smiling faces! Phone calls and FaceTime are other great options. I want to remind you that staff are still taking care of the needs of the residents, so please call during the time that your facility has designated.

Our number one priority is keeping everyone healthy. We will continue posting updates on the web page viciniagardens.com. We are praying that this ends soon, but until then enjoy the pictures of your loved ones smiling on Facebook!

Dear Family Members and Visitors,

As you know, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has created new and unfamiliar health concerns for all of us. Effective immediately, we are suspending all visitation into our facilities with exception of essential health care providers. This policy will remain in place until further notice in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to our residents, who are most at risk.

Our staff at Vicinia Gardens is taking additional precautions to ensure the health and well-being of our residents. This includes more frequent cleaning of common areas and hand sanitizing stations at our entrances. We also have cancelled all resident outings.

Additionally, as a precaution we are encouraging families to reschedule any resident doctor appointments that are non-essential or emergent.

In response to these temporary safeguards, beginning on Monday, March 16, we will have iPads available to our residents for anyone who wishes to visit via Facetime.

If you have an emergency situation that requires an exception to these visitation restrictions, please call us to make arrangements. We will not be allowing anyone into our facilities if they had any symptoms of illness or traveled to an affected region within the past 14 days.

While these safeguards are not convenient, our residents’ health and well-being is our priority at Vicinia Gardens. We will continue to monitor the Center for Disease Control and will communicate any other policy changes if needed. Please check our website – ViciniaGardens.com – for up to date information and policy changes.

Thank you for your support and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 810-577-2153.
