- - - - VACCINE UPDATE - - - -

 

(1/4/2021) Pleasant View is encouraged by the recent hope in the available vaccines for COVID-19. We have partnered with Walgreens to schedule dates for on-site vaccine clinics at Pleasant View. The first clinics will vaccinate all Healthcare Center residents and Pleasant View team members who elect to have the vaccine. 

 

Vaccination clinics for Pleasant View’s Healthcare Center residents and Pleasant View team members will begin January 8th. Vaccine clinics will continue January 29th, and February 19th.  Pleasant View will be following up with residents and/or resident representatives regarding vaccine consent. 

 

Residents of Hearthstone Assisted Living, as well as those living in our residential villa homes, will have an opportunity to be vaccinated on the scheduled date for  January 22nd.

 

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.

 

Pleasant View 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.

Pleasant View has received test results confirming one team member positive for COVID-19. Those who had direct contact with this individual have been notified. The return-to-work procedure and timing for team members who test positive for COVID-19 follows LaSalle County Health Department guidance and Pleasant View policy.

 

At Pleasant View, 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 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 team members for fever and respiratory symptoms

  • Universal masking for all team members and external caregivers

  • Separation and isolation of residents when there is 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 Pleasant View to vigilantly navigate the challenges of COVID-19. Thank you so much for your continued prayers, support and understanding.
