Since our last communication a few days ago, we have had a second resident who has tested positive for the virus.  This resident is currently receiving treatment outside of the facility.

We will continue to contact families if there is any change in the health condition of their loved one, whether COVID related or not. Read more

COVID-19 Update

7/6/20

 

Dear Patients and Families,

Sherwood Village is committed to keeping you updated about our response to COVID-19. We’re providing this update to describe our practices relating to COVID-positive patients.

As I am sure many of you are aware, Arizona is experiencing an increase in the reported COVID cases.  We have just learned that one of our residents has tested positive for COVID.

We are in close contact with the state health department concerning this resident and are following their guidance. This resident has been isolated from other residents, and the clinicians and other staff assigned to care for the resident will be using heighted infection control measures before, after and during care and, regardless, will limit their exposure to other residents as much as possible. No equipment or supplies are shared between providers caring for a positive resident with other staff. Read more

Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
