Covid 19- situation in Helsingin Seniorisäätiö 14.9.2020
There are currently no cases of coronary infection in the Helsinki Senior Foundation. We have managed to keep the corona away from our nursing homes throughout the summer, thanks to responsible and professional hygiene and adherence to guidelines.
The masks have a good availability situation and are used by the nurses in all contacts and treatment situations in strict accordance with the instructions.
At the Senior Foundation, we are happy that the good corona situation provides an opportunity for family reunions and we welcome relatives to meet their loved ones. Family meetings are of great importance to the well-being of the resident during these exceptional times, when the participation and movement of the residents is less than normal times. As long as the autumn weather permits, family reunions are recommended in outdoor. In the Senior Foundation, the meeting time is about 1 hour and up to 3 guests at a time, both outdoors and indoors. This is our standard, because family meetings for as many residents as possible can be arranged safely. The resident has the opportunity to meet their relatives once a day. Visits related to the anniversaries will be negotiated separately with the ward care staff.
With these measures, we continue to work more effectively to protect our residents from corona infections. Therefore, it is important to follow the safety instructions.
Events and activities are here again. In the spring, we hoped to get to a new normal. Fortunately, this wish has come true!
We have been able to organize a programs, events, performances and recreation for the daily lives of our residents during the summer and fall. Without compromising on safety, residents have enjoyed a variety of joyful events and have been able to participate in dances as well as circus and theater performances in our various nursing homes. You can follow these on Facebook and social medias channels like Instagram also.
Let's still fight and keep Korona away from our Nursing homes.
