COVID-19 Status Update

From safe dining to vaccine booster clinics to transparently sharing team member vaccination rates, our communities and management company, Cappella Living Communities, continue to support residents’ purpose-filled lives while taking steps to increase resident safety from COVID variants.  While the larger community wonders if restaurants and shops will require masks or shut down again, our residents are empowered daily to learn and grow with the added security of neighbors and team members they know are vaccinated.

Demaree Crossing is getting ready for some wonderful family reunions! Yesterday the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) released new guidance that communities like ours, can offer responsible and safe visit options regardless of the vaccination status for families and residents. CMS put in place some restrictions, and this has been the case throughout the pandemic, we must receive the green light from the Indiana health department before we can actually host more indoor visits. Read the specific information on our Cappella Living Solution’s website.

Past Updates

2/11/21

In our continued commitment to keep you informed during this COVID-19 pandemic, we want to update you regarding our work to offer indoor visitations per Indiana State Department of Health directives issued in November 2020.

At Demaree Crossing we have met the criteria required for our community to offer indoor visitations. The measurement that continues to be variable is our county’s positivity rate. We are thrilled to share that our county rate has finally gone below the requirement and we can offer indoor visitations in our Assisted Living and Memory Support neighborhoods.

As a reminder, now that we can offer visits, visitors must also meet specific criteria. A COVID-19 test is recommended, but not required.  

The following protocols are in place for visitations:

  • Visits will be held in the discovery room and will be twenty minutes long.
  • Our visitation hours will be 10:30 AM and the last visit is 6:30 PM, Monday through Friday, and 10:30 AM and the last visit is at 4:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
  • To schedule an indoor visit please call the community at (317) 316-8380, and you can schedule with the concierge.
  • We can accommodate four family members during each visit, with one visit per resident per week.
  • All visitors must wear a mask, have their temperature taken and sign an acknowledgement form.

Outdoor visits will remain available as the weather allows. We also encourage residents and families to connect via technology, such as video chat, letters, and care packages.

We will continue to do everything we can to offer indoor visitations at this time, but please remember that this can change at any time due to virus activity in our community or an increase in the positivity rate in our county.

We will do our best to notify our Demaree Crossing family if our visitation status changes.

We know connections with loved ones and friends if vitally important to the health and happiness of those we serve, we will continue to look for creative ways to help preserve precious relationships.

New Visit Protocols to Start Next Week

Demaree Crossing is pleased to say that we continue to be free of Covid-19 in our community!
After review of the Indiana State Department of Health guidelines, we will begin offering indoor visitations rather than outdoor visitations starting on July 22 for the health and welfare of all during these hot summer days. Visitations will be in the Discovery Room just inside the front lobby. You will not be able to have access to the residents’ apartments or the other common areas. We will follow similar guidelines as we did with the outside visits, including all visits being supervised, a 20-minute time frame being enforced, virus screenings will be completed and social distancing protocols will be followed. All guests are asked to bring their own masks and are required to wear them. You are welcome to schedule the visit through the concierge by calling 317.316.8380. Previously scheduled outdoor visits will be transferred to indoor visits.
A friendly reminder that residents and families must continue to wear their masks and continue to follow social distancing protocols at all times when visiting each other. While we understand the desire to hug and see each other’s faces, the use of face masks and social distancing has shown to be very effective at preventing the spread of the virus. With the increase in active Covid-19 cases in the surrounding areas, we are very concerned that this action puts others at risk and we are trying very hard to keep everyone who lives and works at Demaree Crossing well. If we have an active case, we will have to quarantine all residents due to the exposure. We ask that you exercise patience in your desire to spend time with your loved one in order to help us protect your loved one as well as others.
We thank you for your patience with us and with this process as we continue to strive to keep

Demaree Crossing COVID-19 Status Update

Demaree Crossing is pleased to say that we continue to be free of Covid-19 in our community and would like to thank you for your part in that. 

This week we have had the opportunity to open our beauty salon for limited services.  We want to start small to allow the beautician an opportunity to familiarize herself with the sanitation requirements needed in order for us to operate in compliance with the State Board of Health guidelines.  She will resume normal operations and appointments next week.  We have also been asked about manicures and pedicures.  We will be reaching out to inquire about starting those services in the near future. 

In addition, many of you have inquired about visits with residents within Demaree Crossing.  With our proximity to Marion County and the high incidence of Covid-19 within Johnson County, we are erring on the side of caution with visitations.  Our goal is to have a plan for visitation to share with each of you next week, allowing us to take into consideration the next steps taken by the State Board of Health with Marion County and the pattern of new cases within our immediate area.

We thank you for your patience with us and with this process as we continue to strive to keep our residents safe and healthy.  

Update 6/19/20

Updates on Outdoor Visitation

Demaree Crossing is pleased to say that we continue to be free of Covid-19 in our community and would like to thank you for your part in that.

We will continue to the outdoor visitation for all residents but we again ask that you limit this to once per week to allow all of our residents and families a chance to visit. Please contact the concierge to schedule an appointment.

In addition, we are now able to allow window visits with the window open. We do ask that you please remain 6 feet apart to avoid the transmission of the disease through the screen.

Lastly, we will also begin expanding our resident’s ability to move through the community this week. Residents will no longer be asked to stay in their apartment as long as they are wearing masks, remaining socially distant and using proper handwashing or use of hand sanitizer. We will also be working on a plan for some small group activities to begin this week as well. We will, of course, remain socially distant, wear masks and not use any shared materials or equipment.

In order to allow our residents more freedom within the community, we would ask again that families use masks, social distancing and refrain from touching residents when on appointments. All residents who go out on appointments and for visits with families will be asked to quarantine in their apartments for 14 days following the outing.

We thank you for your patience with us and with this process as we continue to strive to keep our residents safe and healthy.
