- Visitation Guidelines
Glendale Home recognizes the stress that COVID-19 has brought on our residents and family members. It is our goal to offer visitation to all of our residents and family members in a safe and dignified manner. While the guidelines set forth by the NYS Department of Health, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have eased over the past several months, there is still guidance in place that limits visitation in certain circumstances. If visitation should become limited at Glendale, the facility offers compassionate care visits for residents that meet those criteria.
Please be advised if you are granted visitation the following guidelines set forth by the facility as required by the Department of Health must be adhered to. Failure to follow the guidelines may result in revocation of your ability to visit.
Thank you for assisting us to keep you, our residents and staff safe during this challenging time.
Visitor testing Guidance
Visitation will occur in an outside area on the facility campus, weather permitting. If weather not permitting, visitation will occur at Glendale in resident rooms for residents that have private rooms or the nursing unit in the neighborhood living room for residents that have semi-private rooms.
All visitors must wear a well-fitting non-surgical paper mask or a mask of higher quality (surgical mask, KN95, or N95) at all times during any visitation at the facility. Cloth masks are not acceptable.
All visitors will be screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Visitation will be refused if the individual(s) exhibits any COVID-19 symptoms, or they do not pass the screening process. Screening shall consist of temperature checks and screening questions.
Visitors must provide proof of a negative COVID test result. Test results must clearly state when they were performed. For antigen/point of care testes, results must be within 24-hours of the visit. For PCR tests, results must be within two days of the visit.
If the visitor does not have proof of a negative test result, the facility will provide the visitor with a test kit. If a test kit is provided to the visitor, the following must occur;
- Visitor is screened by reception and completes screening form.
- Visitor signs into the visitor log.
- Test kit is provided to the visitor.
- Visitor should conduct self-test in their vehicle or outside.
- Visitor should wait for results prior to re-entering the building.
- If results are negative, visitor may come into the facility for visitation.
- If results are positive, visitor should call the receptionist to make her aware of the positive test result.
- Visitors should also call the county health department of the county they reside in
- All used test kits should be disposed of in the red trash container in the vestibule.
NOTE: For visitors who visit for multiple days, including a visitor who comes every day, proof of negative testing is required as often as feasible, at a minimum every third day (meaning at a minimum testing is required on day one, day 4, day 7 and so on).
Visiting hours are as follows:
- Monday - Friday, 9:00AM – 6:00Pm.
- Saturday & Sunday, 10:00AM – 4:00PM
