We know many people are concerned and wondering about the spread of COVID-19 and how that impacts Lakewood Health System; in particular, our care center and residents.
To keep the families and friends of our residents up-to-date on our residents’ activities, we will be adding weekly family updates to this page. Please check back often! (Click on Documents to the right to view our weekly Chronicles.)
We are also working to find other methods for communicating with your loved ones. If you’d like to set up a virtual face-to-face visit with your loved ones, click to email.
July 15, 2020: The Minnesota Dept of Health (MDH) recently released guidance that allows facilities the option to implement a program to allow Essential Caregivers (EC) to come into the facility to visit and/or care for residents. This may include family, friends, volunteers, or other community contacts. There are multiple requirements that need to be followed in order to ensure safety and oversight of these visits. Lakewood Health System Care Center and Senior Housing are working on a possible implementation plan, using guidance from MDH and Care Providers of MN. We anticipate more information will be released from our facility next week. Thank you for your patience as we work through this new guidance!
