Visitation to Skilled Nursing and Personal Care:
Dunwoody Village strongly discourages unvaccinated individuals from visiting due to increased risk to themselves and our residents. Currently, the number of visitors residents may have at one time will be limited to (2) related to COVID positivity in the Care Center. Visitors must wear their masks at all times when visiting, including while in resident rooms. No food or beverages should be consumed by visitors while visiting. Children ages 6 and up are permitted to visit so long as they can properly wear a mask and follow infection control precautions. Children ages 5 and under will be allowed to visit through pre-approved compassionate visits, which can be scheduled through Jackie DellaVecchio or Beth Powers at: (610) 359-4504. Skilled residents may visit relatives and friends off-site, in their homes. Taking residents off-site to crowded or public places is highly discouraged. If a resident is not staying the night off-site, they will not be required to quarantine upon return from their visit. If a resident chooses to stay over-night off-site, they will be required to quarantine until the resident receives two negative Covid-19 tests. The first test will be administered the day that the resident returns to Dunwoody and the second test will be done on day 5 of their return.
Visitors should sign in at the Care Center Reception Desk.
For our independent residents in the apartments, East and West Country Houses and Penrose Carriage Homes, visitors should sign in at the Main Building Lobby and complete the screening process.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
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.
