Hope is on the way!  Residences Senior Living announced being among the first to offer priority access to the Covid-19 vaccine at clinics beginning Jan. 18 for residents and staff at Residences at Deer Creek, Schererville, and Residences at Coffee Creek Chesterton.  As licensed memory care and assisted living communities, we have been given the opportunity to partner with Walgreens to be able to provide the priority access. January 18 was the first of three vaccine clinics, additionally scheduled for February 15 and March 15.

The Moderna vaccine process requires participants to receive two shots spaced approximately 28 days apart. Executive Director Kaitlynn Redmon, Residences at Coffee Creek is hopeful that the introduction of this vaccine will enable a pathway back to normalcy for the senior living community in Chesterton as well as for the town and surrounding communities served. As she reflected. “It’s been a long and winding road with many new and unprecedented curves. Without the co-operation of our residents, dedicated staff, families, partners in care and essential vendors we could not have built the bridge essential to arriving at this point, nearly a year later.”

Swift action and determination, focused on an abundance of caution, has been the muscle used by Residences at Coffee Creek to combat the threat of COVID-19 from overtaking the health and safety of our residents and staff. Redmon lauds the team dedication and cooperation for the successes to-date.  Technology, but above all the staff, residents, partners in care, and now the hope of the vaccine clinics for residents and staff, are constantly improving our environment.

As soon as COVID-19 was designated as an airborne transmission disease, Residences Senior Living invested immediately in Oxy4 Air Purifier systems making a significant difference in ventilation and air quality, killing organisms, sterilizing and purifying the air continuously. Additional equipment and supplies added to the arsenal combatting the spread. Foggers are used in our resident apartments and even vehicles. When safe, housekeepers, trained to safely use a compatible solution registered with the EPA, complete the process. Apartments are sanitized for all new and existing residents.

Implementing procedures such as daily temperatures of visitors, vendors and staff, using protective equipment properly, and monitoring for possible symptoms of Covid, stops spread.  Staff knowledge of possible symptoms of COVID-19 – when to stay home and what to report, have also proven how essential staff education is in prevention.

There is a growing sense of relief, and most importantly hope through this early availability of the all-important vaccines.  We will stay solid on our bridge efforts, wearing our masks, and continuing all the efforts that helped us reach this next path on the journey. Vaccines are now part of the arsenal to combat Covid-19 and we are so excited to offer them this early.
