Letter from The Administrator 9/11/2020

Dear ORANGE Strong Family,

As we enter September we cautiously report that we remain COVID free both with our beloved residents and our hardworking and dedicated staff. Staff are being COVID tested, under the Governor's Orders, every other week and our facility and its' Infection Control Practices have been inspected by CT DPH (7) times maintaining our CMS 5 Star rating; the highest possible rating obtainable by the Federal Government.

Our staff continues to work diligently toward maintaining our infection control practices both at work and at home. I would like to take a moment to thank them for their diligence and efforts during these stressful times. They continue to work tirelessly keeping in mind what they do both in our facility AND at home effect all of us.

To this end we would also like to thank YOU, our families and friends, for your understanding and compliance with the many guidelines and regulations put in place to help keep our facility and residents COVID free. I have attached our Perimeter Visitation (click here for policy) and Compassionate Care Visit (click here for policy)  policies here for your view once again.

Our residents have been enjoying the outside patio for recreation purposes as well as visits.

The Peterson Garden continues to flourish providing many veggies for salads and side dishes. Maintaining our many flower boxes and pots have provided much exercise and interest to some of our residents while simply being out in the fresh air and talking with others provides a much needed diversion to others.

Again we ask you to stay abreast of our Governors travel advisory ( which requires you to quarantine should you travel to one of the States on the list.
The CT DPH has continued to keep nursing facilities in Phase One of the State's Opening plan for the protection of our vulnerable population. We understand there is guidance coming soon on Phases Two and Three along with a possible timeline for these to be implemented. When this occurs we will certainly let you know. Until then please continue to use the Perimeter Visits (Patio/Window) and the Electronic Visits (Skype/FaceTime) as you desire.

We feel very fortunate for all of your support these many months. We wish you all good health and stay ORANGE Strong!

Most Sincerely, Andree
