Our Response to COVID-19

November 28, 2020


To Our Residents and Family Members:

We know some of you may be concerned about the spread of COVID-19 (the new coronavirus) being reported in the media and how it may impact us here at the center.

Our top priority is keeping our residents and Care Team Members safe and we feel these measures are needed to ensure their safety. We understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important and there are a variety of other ways you might consider connecting with them. These may include telephone, email, text or through Skype or Facebook. Our Care Team Members are happy to help facilitate these alternative methods.

Our center is following the recommendations of the CDC on prevention steps, including following strict hand-washing procedures, and in many circumstances, wearing gowns and gloves when interacting with residents who are sick. We also are staying up-to-date with the CDC recommendations as they are updated. In addition, the center is in close contact with the local and state health department and are following their guidance.

We will notify you if any residents or Care Team Members are diagnosed with COVID-19. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Executive Director.

As part of the โ€œSeneca Place Defenseโ€ program, we follow a scientific approach using rigorous measures and our industryโ€™s best products. We closely monitor recommendations from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our extensive efforts include:


Weekly COVID-19 Testing: All Care Team Members are tested at a minimum of every week.

Sign-In Kiosks and Temperature Monitoring: We utilize a digital system to screen guests and Care Team Members for symptoms of acute respiratory illness (e.g., fever, cough, difficulty breathing) before entering our community.


Personal Protective Equipment: Care Team Members and residents have access to masks (surgical, N95), gloves, gowns, face shields, and hand sanitizer. Care Team Members are required to wear a mask at all times.


Recycled Air Ionizer: Air Ionizers are installed directly into air ducts, producing positive and negative ions that neutralize harmful pollutants and odors in our buildings.

Plexiglass at Check-in and Nurses Stations: Plexiglass Shields at reception and nurses stations provide a physical barrier to reduce exposure and cross-contamination.


Electrostatic Sprayers:ย Sprayers provide a uniform and wraparound layer of germ-killing power, providing maximum efficiency disinfecting surfaces.

Deep-Clean Sanitization: Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level.

Daily Communications with Families: Our automated system keeps families and loved ones informed on COVID19 cases.

How to Properly Wear a Mask

November 13, 2020


COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets. Respiratory droplets travel into the air when you cough, sneeze, talk, shout, or sing. These droplets can then land in the mouths or noses of people who are near you or they may breathe these droplets in.

Masks are a simple barrier to help prevent your respiratory droplets from reaching others. Studies show that masks reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth.

Your mask should:


โœ”๏ธ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils
โœ”๏ธ Fit snugly against the sides of the face
โœ”๏ธ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through
โœ”๏ธ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape
๏ปฟ

Do not buy surgical masks to use as a mask. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders.

If these tips don’t help or you have concerns about wearing a mask, talk with your doctor about how to protect yourself and others during the pandemic.

โ€œI have greatly enjoyed my stay at Seneca Place, all of the staff are so kind and accommodating.  The therapy department has been so patient in working with me in order to get me stronger that I may return home. I would recommend Seneca Place to anyone who needs therapy!โ€

Great job, Mr. Osborne!

Resident Success Story: Mrs. Triplett

โ€œUpon admission to Seneca Place, I was unable to put weight on my left side and needed two people to help me stand. I was also unable to walk or complete activities to get ready for the day. After participating in therapy, I was able to walk over 400 feet with a walker before needing to rest and complete all of my basic needs without anyone helping me.”

Congratulations to Mrs. Triplett! We are so happy for you!

We are so proud of Mr. Effinger on all of his Successes!
