Dunwoody Village takes seriously its responsibility to its residents to ensure a safe environment in which to live. It is with that responsibility in mind that we continually communicate current measures, together with resources, activities and opportunities available for our residents, as we work together to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
We continually assess our protocols, taking into consideration the recommendations of medical experts and governmental agencies, and we continue to keep staff, residents and families updated. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding; it is only by working together that we can reduce the risk.
Current Visitation Policies
Effective February 15, 2021, Dunwoody Village will begin to allow visitors to our personal care and skilled nursing residents in specially designed “Safe Visiting Areas” by appointment ONLY. Visitors must follow the following protocols:
Visitors in the designated Safe Visiting Areas must show proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken within 7 days of the scheduled visit (within 72 hours of the visit is preferred). It is the visitor’s responsibility to obtain their own Covid-19 test and present proof of a negative test.
- Those visiting residents who live in the skilled center should follow signage near the Care Center entrance to the Pavilion/Patten “Safe Visiting Area” entrance.
- Those visiting Cedars East, Leeland and Woodlea residents in personal care should report to the Cedars Reflections Safe Visiting Area located on the West side of Cedars. Please follow signage.
- Those visiting residents who live in our Cedars West unit should report to the Avalon patio where a Dunwoody liaison will meet you and conduct screening.
- Visits in the Safe Visiting Areas will be limited to one 30-minute visit by a maximum of two visitors (16 years or older) every 7 days.
- Visitors will be required to wear a surgical mask, disposable gown and nitrile gloves, which will be provided by the visitor liaison at the time when the visitor is screened for temperature and signs and symptoms of Covid-19 by the liaison.
- For weekend visits in our Safe Visiting Areas, we are limiting the number of weekend visits per resident family to ensure that every resident has an opportunity to receive visitors on the weekends. If additional time slots are available on weekends and we are able, we will offer additional visits.
For those wishing to visit a Care Center resident, but who don’t want to get a Covid-19 test, we are offering supervised window visits by appointment, weather permitting.
To schedule a visit in our Safe Visiting Areas or to schedule a window visit please contact Jennifer Barrall at 610-359-4503.
