Health Care Community – The Haven, Assisted Living, and Memory Care

"The only way you give yourself a chance to find your good days is by showing up every day.”

Chesterfield County transmission positivity rate decreased slightly to 17.7%, HIGH status.  

We had two positive results from today’s testing. One resident in the Haven and one team member in Assisted Living. All residents in Assisted Living and Memory Care tested negative. We continue to contact trace and test as required. The Department of Health has been informed and continues to approve of the steps we are taking at this time. We continue to follow the latest guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).  

We will continue to serve meals in residents' rooms and do one-on-one activities. If taking a resident to an outside MD appointment we encourage you and your loved one to wear a mask even if it is not required by the office.

Please stop and answer questions at the kiosk located at the Haven and Assisted Living entrance, we need your help to stop the spread of Covid-19. Continue to wear well-fitting masks, surgical or KN95 at all times, perform hand hygiene, and practice physical distancing. Do not mingle in the common areas of the community. Please do not visit your loved one and contact your doctor if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: sore throat, severe lingering headache, sinus/head pressure, head congestion, runny nose, nausea, cough, and fatigue.  

Visitors who are unable to adhere to our core principles of COVID-19 infection prevention that are consistent with the guidance for nursing homes will not be permitted to visit or should be asked to leave.
