Our Response to COVID-19
A Message from Hidden Springs
Date: May 2021
The past year has proved challenging for everyone, especially older adults. Now more than ever, the residents at Hidden Springs of McKinney are so thankful to be part of a close-knit community. Offering Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care in a rental environment, Hidden Springs may be an option for someone you know and love.
Since March of 2020, we have put into effect infection control procedures and numerous policies to keep our community safe, while balancing the need for continued interaction and socialization. As a senior living community, we were first in line for the COVID vaccine and our rates of vaccination are impressive. You can be confident your loved one is in good hands with us.
The Right Choice Now. The Right Choice Tomorrow
Our S.A.F.E. Together program is our continued commitment to you to put the safety of those in our community first. As Texas eases restrictions, our residents and families are navigating new realities and envisioning new futures with a deep focus on the safety, health and well-being of their most vulnerable members. But here’s a bit of good news: we are turning a corner, and our community is safer than ever.
In March of 2020, we took swift action to address the COVID-19 pandemic and protect our residents, team members and communities from the spread of the virus. We implemented new policies and procedures, increased staff training and education — and we didn’t stop there. Screening and testing are now our safety best practices. Our communities also adhere to all relevant guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as local and state Department of Health guidelines.
We are moving forward with new ways to connect within our community. Beyond the state-of-the-art technology and precautions our transitional “new normal” has brought, we have also supported each other in personal ways. The connections that have come out of this will continue to flourish.
Short-term challenges lead to long-term opportunities. The ingenuity, resourcefulness, support and camaraderie that we’ve seen will have long-lasting effects on our culture and inspire bonds that will define our community.
We’re in This Together
You hear it everywhere: “We’re in this together.” But here it has a deeper meaning. Everyone has gone above and beyond to create appropriate, safe, and in some cases, ingenious opportunities for residents and staff to engage and stay connected. Seeing our team come together, putting in extraordinary effort to support each other and our residents, has been inspirational.
We are happy to announce the next stage of reopening is offering area seniors with dementia the care and services they deserve. Our memory care is open in April and we look forward to sharing our unique Montessori-based programming with those who need compassionate and purposeful care.
