- - - - VACCINE UPDATE - - - -

(1/9/20) Lutheran Home is encouraged by the recent hope in the available vaccines for COVID-19. We have partnered with Walgreens to schedule six different dates for on-site vaccine clinics at Lutheran Home. These clinics will vaccinate all Healthcare Center residents and Healthcare Center team members who elect to have the vaccine. Hearthstone Assisted Living residents, as well as team members who serve only within Hearthstone Assisted Living, will have an opportunity to be vaccinated in the next round of scheduling with Walgreens.

 

Vaccination clinics for Lutheran Home’s Healthcare Center residents and Healthcare Center team members began January 7th. Vaccine clinics will continue January 14th, 28th, February 4th, 18th, and 25th. Lutheran Home will be following up with residents and/or resident representatives regarding vaccine consent. Lutheran Home is required to provide Walgreens an exact number of residents and team members who have elected to receive the vaccine. If individuals want to have access to the vaccine on these dates, confirmation must be received (the Nursing department is recording residents, the Human Resources department is recording team members) by 5:00 p.m. December 29th.

 

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the vaccine for those who have recovered from a case of COVID-19 as well.

 

The Lutheran Home continues to share thanks for the many ways each of you has vigilantly navigated the challenges of COVID-19. The promotion of the collective health of this community has been truly inspiring. The positive response we have seen to this vaccine effort amplifies our hope for the return of connected community life.

Lutheran Home has received test results confirming one short-term rehabilitation patient in our healthcare center has tested positive for COVID-19. This individual’s family, as well as those who had direct contact, have been notified.

At Lutheran Home, we continue to actively follow the strict guidelines for senior living communities as directed by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and IDPH as follows:

 

  • Limit visitation to scheduled window visits and certain compassionate care situations, such as end of life

  • Restrict all volunteers and non-essential health care personnel (e.g., barbers)

  • Active screening of residents and health care personnel for fever and respiratory symptoms

  • Universal masking for all team members and external caregivers

  • Separation and isolation of residents when there are COVID-19 cases within the resident population

 

We know, especially during these trying times, these restrictions are incredibly difficult for everyone. We do appreciate your partnership in helping Lutheran Home to vigilantly navigate the challenges of COVID-19. Thank you so much for your continued prayers, support and understanding.
