Today (3/17/21), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) updated its Residential Care Facilities Order to reflect recent changes in Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services guidance for visitation. The state recently rolled out an expanded visitation program, using a testing protocol to keep residents and staff safe. The updated order and accompanying guidance continues to support visitation and improve quality of life for seniors while maintaining precautions to help keep residents and staff safe. Testing is strongly encouraged prior to visitation, particularly in counties with medium or high positivity, but not required. The order goes into effect immediately.
Facilities must meet criteria specified and including having no new Covid-19 cases within the previous 14 days in order to host indoor and/or outdoor visitation.
Our facility’s current visitation status is available on our Nursing Home Visitation Tab. The clinical and operational teams at our facility complete a daily self-assessment to determine our ability to accommodate these visits based on the criteria established by state and federal guidelines. We will communicate any changes to our visitation status on this website.
Visitors should in most cases be immediate family members (spouses/significant others, children, siblings, parents) of a resident. If a resident does not have immediate family in the area, visits with close friends or extended family will be considered. We ask that residents limit their visits to one per day whenever possible out of consideration for others and limited scheduling opportunities.
Please know there is a possibility our visitation status could change! All nursing homes will be required to constantly assess and reassess their visitation status. Our eligibility for hosting visits will be determined based on our ability to meet the standards outlined by the MDHHS.
