WE CARE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

Here is what we are doing at our community:

We are following CDC and local Health Department guidelines for infection control and personal protective equipment for all of our staff.

We are monitoring the CDC and local Health Department guidelines and meeting with our leadership and staff to ensure that all of our employees understand and follow the latest guidelines.

We are disinfecting our facilities and offices using products approved by the CDC, we are making rounds to ensure that our spaces are clean and employees are following the infection control practices recommended by CDC.

We are keeping you updated with Ambassador calls and One Call notifications to our families.

We have set up an email for staff to email questions and concerns and leadership rounds to address questions on the spot.

We are pre-screening our employees prior to each shift using a screening tool that reflects questions that allow us to screen for exposure and temperature checks prior to each shift.

We look forward to when we may have you back in our facilities and with your loved ones. Please call us if you have questions and concerns, we are here for you!

March 15, 2021: Kempton of Jacksonville COVID-19 Update

Dear family and friends of residents at Kempton of Jacksonville,

We recognize the psychological, physical and emotional toll that isolation has had on our residents during this pandemic, and we are excited to share that the Department of Health in the state of North Carolina has relaxed Assisted Living visitation restrictions. Our community has qualified to host indoor visits under the updated guidelines.

Although indoor visits are now permitted, outdoor visits remain preferred when weather permits. Please note that as a precaution, indoor visits are still not permitted if your loved one is quarantined, in isolation or if your loved one is COVID-positive and on transmission-based precautions.

In addition, please be aware that guidance is subject to change and is affected by county COVID positivity rates and facility outbreak status. We are excited to schedule your visit so please contact us at (910) 355-1996.

We look forward to seeing you and the smiles you will bring to our community members. We have missed you!
