Maintenance Man Armando has been hard at work on projects designed to keep residents and family members safe and comfortable during visits.
He used Somerset’s plexiglass table top covers to build a visitation shelter at our sister building, New Westside Terrace Retirement and Assisted Living Longview WA.
The visitation shelter keeps visitors warm and dry while they safely visit (separated from our seniors-residents by plexiglass).
Somerset and New Westside Terrace (NWT) Retirement Homes each have a visitation shelter. The photos above are of the NWT shelter. Photos of Somerset’s visitation shelter were posted last month.
Our goal is to provide as much comfort as possible for residents and visitors while keeping them safe.
Our maintenance man Armando worked hard and fast building a see through door to make Winter visits from family and friends comfortable for family members.
This plexiglass door allows family members to enter a vacant apartment where they can be indoors, warm and dry while safely visiting their senior relative(s) who will be on the other side of the door. Everyone on both sides of this visiting door will be warm and dry indoors this Winter while visiting.
Many other facilities don’t have something like this and so visitors must shiver in the rain and cold while visiting through an exterior Window, or they are allowed inside without this level of protection for seniors.
We wanted to make it comfortable for visitors in any weather and keep it fully safe for our seniors. This, along with our other safety measures have been working well. We recently tested everyone and all staff and residents still test negative for COVID.
With the cooperation of visitors we will continue to do everything possible to keep our staff and residents safe. The staff at Somerset Retirement Home and Assisted Living thanks all our wonderful visitors for your cooperation!
