How We Are Protecting the Wickshire Family

One of the core principles at Wickshire Senior Living is transparency. Accordingly, below is a summary of actions we are taking at our communities to prevent the spread of any virus, including COVID-19:

  • We are actively communicating with residents and associates regarding precautions and best practices they should take to protect themselves
    • Hand hygiene (frequent washing, use of gloves, and use of hand sanitizers). Clean hands often by washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol- based hand sanitizer that contains 60%–95% alcohol immediately after coughing, sneezing or blowing nose. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty
    • Respiratory hygiene / cough and sneeze etiquette (use of disposable tissues, or elbow when tissues unavailable).
  • We continue to be diligent in maintaining a clean environment to help reduce the spread of the virus
  • We continue to follow our policies and procedures related to preventing the spread of communicable disease and virus among residents and associates are being in-serviced on protocols for handling communicable diseases
  • As a precaution, we have increased the purchase of certain medicine
  • Partnership with local health department and hospitals for cooperative coordination
