Here at St. Anthony’s and Guest Services Senior Living, we are committed to providing our residents with the highest caliber of care and safety. As we work through this unprecedented situation, we are taking precautionary measures to keep our residents, staff, and families safe. We are following the recommendations and guidelines set forth by the state of Missouri, as well as the CDC. At this time we are limiting access to our community for all visitors and non-essential 3rd party providers. Essential healthcare providers will still be permitted into the community as a means to continue necessary supporting services for our wonderful residents. We have done this to minimize any potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus). We are also practicing social distancing and providing social support in smaller groups while keeping our residents separated by an appropriate distance. We are taking steps to monitor both residents and staff for any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. We are pleased to announce that at this time, we have no known or suspected cases within the community. Any staff that shows an indication of fever, respiratory symptoms, etc., will be asked to stay home and refrain from work. We have ample supply of both personal protective equipment for our staff, and food for our residents. We are in regular communication with our food providers to help ensure that there is no disruption of deliveries. As we move forward, we will continue to work with local and state officials, in coordination with the CDC, to stay informed and ahead of the situation.
We would also like to offer the most sincere appreciation for our incredible staff for everything that they’re doing to keep our residents safe and healthy. We can never thank our healthcare workers enough, especially in times like this.
Thank you for standing with us as we do whatever is needed to care for our amazing residents.
