Preventing the spread of COVID-19 has become such a large part of our daily lives. Through it all, our commitment has stopped at nothing and we remain vigilant in ensuring our residents are safe while living well. We’re excited that we’re approaching times where vaccines are on the verge of FDA approval.
With that said, Cascade Living Group is proud to announce that all residents and associates will be among the very first to receive a vaccine once it’s ready and approved.
“For several months we have been engaged with an invisible enemy. Our teams have been on the front lines of a very important battle for the well-being of all our residents, our associates and their families. Like so many, we are so pleased to hear the exciting news that a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine will soon be available,” says Debbie Walker, RN, BSN, Chief Wellness Officer. “We’re excited at this prospect of an approved vaccine – especially because it will create a safe haven of sorts for residents and families. This will ensure they feel safer, more secure and continue living a life they truly love in the place they love to call home.”
Plans are underway to receive the first dose of a vaccine and we are excited to begin administering it to anyone who wishes to have it once it’s approved and has reached our community. “There will be no more noble effort this year than getting vaccinated,” says Walker, “to protect ourselves and to protect each other.”
Until then, and even afterwards, we will remain vigilant in keeping our communities safe with continued use of PPE, updated resident safety protocols, safety standards and new-resident safe transition periods. We will continue to work with the CDC and reinforce their infection control and safety practices
