We are happy to announce that our residents residing at the following Dove Healthcare assisted living locations are now able to schedule outdoor visits with their loved ones:

  • Dove Healthcare - Orchard Hills Assisted Living (Eau Claire)
  • Dove Healthcare - Osseo
  • Dove Healthcare - Rutledge Home (Chippewa Falls)
  • Dove Healthcare - South Eau Claire

After taking into consideration DHS' guidance to assisted living residences for implementing and conducting safer visits, these locations created and implemented a Safer Outdoor Visiting Policy and Procedure. If you have a loved one residing at one of the location's listed above, please call the director / administrator for more information on how to schedule your visit. We look forward to hearing from you.

Our six skilled nursing facilities located in Bloomer, Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, Osseo, and Rice Lake are actively using the guidance recently released by CMS and DHS to develop a policy and procedure - specific to their location -  for safe outdoor visits. As soon as all of the systems and protocols are finalized and ready to safely implement, the administrator will notify the families and residents at their respective location. We are hopeful these visits will begin soon.

Please do not hesitate to contact the director / administrator with any questions or concerns. We are here to support you.

It has been almost three months since visitor restrictions were implemented. We know how challenging these unprecedented times have been for everyone, and we want to thank you for your continued patience and support as we begin to carefully navigate towards reopening to visitors.

Understanding the vulnerable nature of the population we care for and our responsibility to protect them, it requires ongoing, aggressive efforts to prevent COVID-19 exposure. As such, Dove Healthcare will use guidance and criteria specified by CMS, DHS, and local public health departments for creating and implementing a multi-phased plan to relax certain restrictions and mitigate the risk of COVID-19 resurgence.

CMS recently released preliminary guidance that included multiple criteria that must be taken into account prior to reopening:

  • Case status in community: This factor will vary for each county. We do not have public health guidance yet, likely because they are awaiting DHS guidance.

  • Case status in location: At this time, we do not have any known active cases of COVID-19 (residents and employees).

  • Adequate staffing: All of our locations are fortunate to have adequate staffing.

  • Access to adequate testing

  • Access to adequate PPE (personal protective equipment) for employees

  • Universal source control (includes visitors and residents wearing face coverings, social distancing, and hand washing/sanitizing).

It is important to understand that each of the above criteria has yet to be fully defined by CMS. For example, we do not know what "adequate testing" means as far as frequency required for both residents and employees. Before we can proceed with implementation of a reopening plan, we must be able to meet the ongoing requirements of adequate testing.

Again, we are fully committed to reopening safely and in compliance with CMS and DHS, as well as the local public health department's community specific requirements. Unfortunately, we have yet to receive specific guidance from DHS or public health, and so at this time, we are unable to fully prepare or provide you with a detailed plan for reopening.

We will keep you informed in the weeks ahead as we continue to receive communications from federal, state, and local departments. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. We are here to support you.
