In our last update, we shared with you the measures Advantage Living Centers have taken to prepare our teams to care for resident who show symptoms of or have COVID-19. Yesterday, we were informed that a resident from our Roseville facility tested positive for the virus while at the hospital. The facility has several other residents with suspected symptoms and the facility activated the isolation unit plan. We have been in contact with the health department and are following CDC guidelines to contain the virus and prevent the spread.
We also called families to keep them up to date about their loved one. We have increased technology so residents and families can connect through facetime and social media. We understand how important it is to stay connected. Residents in all Advantage facilities have been very creative in interacting with one another and families without having in person contact.
A key component of our plan is taking a team approach to care. We have a dedicated team unit that only cares for suspected or confirmed cases of the virus. The team consists of one nurse, one nursing assistant and one housekeeper. They do not care for any other residents except those on the isolation unit. Currently, we have protective equipment to care for these residents. These team members are highly experienced and are working closely with physicians.
We are a company of prayer and 2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of sound mind. Our staff is calm. They have joined together to secure the health and safety of the people who live and work with us. As things change, we will update the information hotline messaging. That number is 248-416-0165.
We are very proud of our Advantage family. Psalm 91 continues to be the scripture we stand on for peace, protection and assurance that God has our backs.
