September 2020: Notes from Nursing

During these uncertain times, daily routines have been drastically changed.  However, one thing that has not changed, is our commitment and service for our residents here at Copperfield Hill.   We are happy to report that some things are back on schedule.  Here are a few things to note:

Podiatry feet

Podiatry appointments have resumed for residents in both The Manor and The Lodge.  Residents in The Lodge must sign up with the nursing department.  Residents in The Manor may sign up in the front office with the Concierge.  Please contact our nursing staff if you have questions.

Flu ShotsPicture5

Flu shots will be offered to residents in both The Manor and The Lodge. Sign up will be available with the Concierge.  We are encouraging all residents and staff to get a flu shot this fall.  Please have your insurance information available.

Essential CaregiversPicture4

Based on the guidance of the MN Department of Health, Copperfield Hill is welcoming “Essential Caregivers” on campus.  An Essential Caregiver is a third party caregiver that at this time during the pandemic, will provide in-person care and assistance to a resident of Copperfield Hill.  All determinations are made on a case by case basis.  Determinations are based on an assessment by the RN and a consultation with the Executive Director.

Beginning at the end of July, Copperfield Hill has welcomed a number of Essential Caregivers.  There are very strict guidelines and policies in place for this program.  Please consult your building manager if you have questions.
