Health and Safety Update: Oakmont Livonia – November 16th, 2020

November 16, 2020

To Our Residents and Families:

In response to the steadily rising transmissions of COVID-19 in Metro Detroit and following the guidance of our state government and health officials, Oakmont Livonia will be temporarily adjusting our building visitation, departure, and activity protocols to best support continued health and safety measures within our community.

For the next two weeks (including the Thanksgiving holiday), residents will only be permitted to leave and return to our building for essential medical appointments. If you believe you have an appointment that qualifies as essential, please inform a member of our management team at least 24 hours before the appointment. Any resident who leaves the building for other reasons will be subject to a 14-day SMP quarantine upon their return.

Similarly, in-person visitation will now be limited to pre-approved medical, service, and caregiving staff only. Residents and families are still welcome to visit by utilizing one of our outdoor spaces by appointment only.

Effective immediately, all group activities will also be suspended. However, our activities and management staff will continue to keep our residents engaged. Our socially distanced dining protocols will be unaffected. These changes will be rescinded or reassessed on December 1st.

Thank you for your help, concern, and patience as we do all we can to make sure our buildings stay free of communicable disease and our residents stay safe. If you have any questions or concerns about this new policy, please do not hesitate to speak to your Executive Director

Thank you,

Oakmont Senior Communities

To Our Residents and Families of Oakmont Livonia: 

Though we know that this is a trying time for all of us, our activities department is working hard to find unique ways to connect families, enrich lives, and keep our community engaged. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we will begin scheduling weekly Skype video chats until the temporary preventative lockdown has been lifted. 

Beginning this week, families and friends can sign up for private video chats with loved ones inside of our community Monday through Friday via the Skype platform. To sign up for a chat, simply send me an email and be sure to include the following information:  

  • Your Name 
  • Your Skype Username 
  • Resident Name 
  • Timeslot and date you desire to Skype 

I will be sending out a schedule each week to confirm appointments. 

If you’re not a current Skype user, signing up for an account is both easy and free. Simply go to Skype.com or your app store; download the app on your computer, smartphone, or tablet; and create a free account. If you have any additional questions about how to sign-up for or use Skype, please don’t hesitate to email me directly. 

As we band together to keep our loved ones safe, our activities department looks forward to helping families stay connected and sharing smiles and stories.
