Visitation Update 7/27/2021
I just wanted to send a note to let everyone know that there haven’t been a lot of changes regarding visitation at Alamo. The State Health Department, CMS, OSHA, and every other agency we follow continue to have all kinds of strict regulations preventing many different things.
Indoor visits are still limited to 30 minutes and restricted to immediate family members over the age of 18. You still must contact activities to schedule your visit at least 24 hours in advance and/or by 5pm on Friday for the weekend. This is to allow us to control the number of people in the building at any given time, allow for contact tracing, and to ensure staffing as our priority is care of the residents. We also ask that you not bring food or drinks to share with your loved one during your visit.
Masks are still required at all times during your visit, regardless of vaccination status.
What is changing… If you and your loved one are fully vaccinated (have presented proof) and your loved one is in a private room, you may have your visit in their room. While visits are still restricted to two persons at a time once a week, each adult child of the resident may visit once weekly. (No more having to plan who’s seein’ Mom or Dad each week!)
We ask that you share this information with your other immediate family members. Every situation is a risk assessment for individual residents, the staff, and the facility as a whole. Our primary focus is on the care of our residents. Our policies are being assessed constantly and I will continue to update everyone as changes occur. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
