How Lifespace Communities is Responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic

The safety of you and your loved ones is of critical concern to all of us at Lifespace Communities. We maintain our focus on keeping our residents and team members safe during this COVID-19 pandemic. As cities throughout the country carefully reopen, we continue to work closely with local, state, and federal agencies to determine the safest way to open our communities’ lifestyle programs and dining venues, as well as expanding our restricted visitation protocols. Below is the latest information on our communities.

Health Centers and Plazas (Assisted Living / Skilled Nursing / Memory Care)

At this time and based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), these areas of our communities continue to operate under a strict no-visitor policy. Exceptions to this policy are only for end-of-life situations.

Residential Living

Lifespace continues to take a cautious, methodical approach to reopen our communities. We have developed a phased approach to reopening and these critical reopening decisions are determined by each community. While carefully following recommended safety protocols, several Lifespace communities are beginning to reopen Residential Living amenities like salons, outdoor dining, libraries, fitness centers, small group activities, and pools; and a few are opening their doors to visitors.

For communities accepting Residential Living visitors, visitors must follow screening procedures, including a temperature check. All visitors must continue to wear facemasks while in the community. Lifespace asks that our residents, team members, and visitors, for those communities accepting visitors, continue to practice social distancing, wear face coverings/masks, and use proper hand hygiene.

Details of Phased Reopening for Residential Living

As Lifespace Communities continues to assess reopening our communities’ services and amenities, we want to share with you additional details of our phased reopening approach for Residential Living.

There are four phases – Phase Zero, Phase One, Phase Two, and Phase Three. As the community begins to meet the phasing criteria requirements, we will reintroduce, with appropriate precautions, limited services, and amenities. In Phase Zero, all residents will shelter in place, with no community activities or events, and meal deliveries to residents’ homes. In Phase One, dining will reopen for carry-out and pick up; visitors may enter the community while following certain restrictions, and limited lifestyle activities will resume. Phase Two will bring seated dining options, small group activities, and increased lifestyle amenities while following certain safety precautions. And finally, in Phase Three, larger group activities will be available, common areas will be open, and we will resume community events, all while continuing to focus on the safety and the health of our community.

Before considering the next phase of reopening, a community must meet local, state, and federal guidelines. We’ve designed a 14-day pause between each phase to carefully assess the health of our residents and team members along with the local community environment. This pause allows us to contain and manage the spread of COVID-19 should our community be impacted between phases. The community may return to Phase Zero if residential living has an outbreak or a cluster of infections.
