Important Update

As our nation, state and local community cope with the novel coronavirus pandemic, we want to provide you with this update regarding its impact on Turlock Residential. We share this information because we believe it is important to everyone’s health and well-being to keep our residents, families, staff and the public fully informed.

We are pleased to report that our facility currently has no active COVID-19 cases within our resident or staff populations at this time.

Over the course of this pandemic our facility has had:

  • Four residents test positive for COVID-19. We are grateful to report that all four of these residents have recovered.
  • Four staff members test positive for COVID-19. We are grateful to report that all four of these staff members have recovered.

To add an additional level of protection we are committed to facility wide testing on all residents and staff in collaboration with, and as recommended by, local public health departments.    We understand the importance of knowing the status of our residents, employees, and essential health care providers.   If a resident should test positive for COVID-19, the resident will be isolated immediately, while arrangements are made for transfer to the most appropriate level of care for additional monitoring.

In this new world of COVID-19, rest assured we are aggressively treating and responding to potential community exposures by conducting routine testing of all our residents and staff until such time as a vaccine becomes available or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) instructs otherwise.

We are working closely with the state and local health department and continue to follow their guidance, as well as guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

We have, and will continue to purposefully augment our systems with new ways to operate that will enhance protection and prevent the spread of the virus to both staff and residents by doing the following:

  • Screening staff and essential medical personnel prior to entry and continuing to follow CDC guidelines of prohibiting visitors into the facility.
  • Providing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) based on the staff’s respective roles and assignments within the facility.
  • Initially, all new admissions are admitted to their specifically designated apartment within the facility, where the resident can be quarantined, tested and closely monitored for any signs or symptoms associated with the virus.

Providing for the safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our paramount priority.  We especially wish to commend our staff for their steadfast commitment to the care and safety of our residents – we truly are “family serving families.”

We would also like to thank our local hospitals, managed care organizations, local police departments, fire departments, transportation companies and local businesses for the tremendous support we have been given as we navigate through this pandemic together.

Please be assured we will continue to provide you with regular updates when we have new information to share.  As always, we encourage you to contact us directly if you have any questions or concerns.

We value the trust you place in us to care for your loved ones and greatly appreciate your continued support and understanding during these unprecedented times.

Thank you,

Turlock Residential
