COVID-19 RESOURCE CENTER
Informed by the CDC, WHO, and Federal, state, and local agencies, Sodalis is diligently applying an abundance of caution to proactively prevent infection in our communities for the benefit of the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff. We must take every action that will lower our risk. Sodalis is one of the few senior living operators in the nation led by a team of professionals with experience in population health, public health, and geriatric medicine and we are applying all domains to mitigate risks.
We are also applying our experience in telepresence, telehealth and virtual care teams to support our residents, families and even medical professionals in learning how to leverage virtual communications technologies and telehealth, while mitigating the risk of the spread of infection. To this end, Sodalis is endeavoring to apply all its knowledge, expertise, experience, and judgement to be a proactive senior living operator and a proactive steward of person-centered population health management.
Position on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
March 12, 2020
Sodalis Senior Living is a leader in assisted living and memory care, with a proactive approach to the health and wellness of our residents.
Given the increasing impact of the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) and the particular risk it poses to elderly populations, our leadership team has announced proactive, data-driven, informed plans to take every precautionary measure to ensure the safety of our residents and staff in all Sodalis communities in Texas. We also will strive to be a model for reliable and informed communication for our patients, residents, families, employees, and the broader communities in which we serve.
To protect our residents, no visitors will be allowed access to Sodalis communities for the next 30 days without emergency clearance from the president of the company. New/returning residents will be admitted once cleared through our screening process, in accordance with guidelines issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
In lieu of in-person visits, we are encouraging families and friends to seek other ways to maintain communications with our residents, such as Skype and FaceTime. Sodalis will help facilitate those communications with the deployment of smart devices in our communities and guides to facilitate virtual communications and social connectedness.
Those interested in living at a Sodalis community are encouraged to contact that community to arrange a virtual visit. Move-ins will be accommodated upon successful completion of our COVID-19 screening process.
We will continue to actively communicate the steps Sodalis is taking to protect all of our communities, as well as disseminate ongoing news and updates regarding COVID-19 and guidelines people can use to better protect themselves as a matter of course.
