Park Manor Dining: Starting Thursday, August 6, the Park Manor dining room will have a soft reopening for independent and assisted living residents with these protocols:

  • Reservations will be required. A reservation form will be delivered to apartments daily, along with a to-go menu. Residents may decide whether they’d like to have their meal delivered or go to the dining room at a reserved time. Residents will be called if reservations need to be moved to accommodate usable space.
  • Masks will be required when going to/from the dining room and until food arrives at the table.
  • Residents will be required to use hand sanitizer before and after each meal in the dining room.
  • Residents will receive temperature checks upon entry to the dining room; these will be logged.
  • Culinary staff will be required to follow infection control protocols, which includes wearing a mask and gloves.

  • Tables will be arranged at least 6 feet apart and each table will not exceed 3 residents.
  • Single-use menus, disposable linens, and washable plates and silverware will be used.
  • Tables and chairs will be sanitized after every seating.

Onsite Podiatry Care:

On Thursday, August 6, Dr. Mackenzi Nelson, DPM, from Preferred Podiatry Group will be in the Abe’s Garden family room for onsite appointments. Only one resident will be permitted in the room at a time. If your loved one has been seen by Dr. Nelson in the past, you don’t need to fill out new paperwork; an appointment will automatically be arranged. If you would like your loved one to begin services with Dr. Nelson, please request the paperwork by emailing Beverly Theis at btheis@abesgarden.org. The form may also be picked up from the Park Manor foyer.

On Monday, August 10, Dr. Nelson will be in the 3rd floor community room for onsite appointments with independent and assisted living residents. Interested independent living residents are required to request an appointment on the sign-up sheet next to the mail room. Assisted living residents do not need to sign up; they will be escorted to appointments in the afternoon. Residents requesting an appointment who have not yet seen a podiatrist at Park Manor must pick up a yellow authorization form from the front desk. Return completed forms to the front desk by August 7. Park Manor residents with podiatry appointments will be required to remain 6 feet apart from other residents, not form a line or gather in a group, and wait outside the community room until the prior appointment is complete. Residents must wear a mask the entire time they are outside of their apartment, including while waiting for - and during – their podiatry appointment.

Dr. Nelson will be wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE) and following our campus-wide infection control protocols, including receiving a symptom and temperature check upon arrival. She will also be following Preferred Podiatry Group’s protocols, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Being tested for COVID-19 every two weeks and self-isolating
  • Disinfecting treatment areas or mobile tables before and after use, and fully submerging reusable instruments for at least 10 minutes in a disinfecting solution proven to be effective on coronavirus
  • Washing hands appropriately after each patient encounter and liberally applying hand sanitizer between patient encounters

Outdoor Visits: Park Manor visit areas have been moved to two covered areas outside the Abe’s Garden entrance. Guests must still sign in at Park Manor’s front desk and follow previously outlined protocols.

Please keep these outdoor visit guidelines, determined by the Tennessee Department of Health, in mind:

  • Visits are limited to 2 visitors per resident (3 visitors were previously permitted, however a limit of 2 visitors will be permitted until further notice)
  • Visits are supervised
  • Visitors must be at least 18 years old; window visits may be arranged for visitors under 18
  • Visits must be prescheduled. We have very limited capacity to accommodate same-day visits. Please schedule visits at least 24 hours prior to the desired time; a few days or a week prior is preferred. To schedule a visit, contact Brenda Nagey at  bnagey@abesgarden.org. If emailing isn’t possible, call 615.733.2687.

GENERAL ABE’S GARDEN / PARK MANOR INFORMATION

We are taking every precaution to protect your loved ones and our team members. Coronavirus remains a threat, and it’s possible it will enter our campus. We know that you and your loved ones are depending on the Abe’s Garden/Park Manor team and we deeply appreciate your continued trust. If you have concerns regarding your loved ones, please let us know.  We are fortunate to have an array of resources to assist them and will do our best to meet their needs.

Not only does our clinical team feel we should maintain our policy at this time, it is still against the Governor's order to allow visitors inside the building. Additionally, Park Manor / Abe’s Garden leadership team members are continually consulting with physician and nursing consultants, as well as respected colleagues, and the entire Park Manor/ Abe’s Garden team is on the same page regarding enforcing restrictions. 

To more effectively keep primary family member contacts and team members updated, Abe’s Garden / Park Manor is partnering with Dialog Health to implement two-way, critical information, text messaging. If you are a member of one of these constituencies, you should have received an introductory text from AGPM. If you haven’t received an introductory text and would like to opt in or are a Park Manor resident who would like to opt-in, please call 615.997.3026. Primary family member contacts are responsible for sharing relevant updates with other family members.

Critical or End-of Life Situation: If there is a critical or end-of-life situation, please notify Walter Wilson (wwilson@parkmanorapts.com or 615.733.2701) or Donna Finto-Burks (dfinto-burks@abesgarden.org) so we can be of assistance.

In-Home Care: Now more than ever, we recognize that residents may need extra assistance in order to remain safe and independent during these challenging times. Independence Plus offers additional in-home support services, such as activities of daily living assistance, medication reminders, hair washing, supervision and companionship. If you would like to learn more about our onsite care program, please contact Kylie Stratton, Senior Director of Home Care, at kstratton@abesgarden.org or 629.800.5295.

Disinfectant: Residents and team members may have seen members of the housekeeping team using the unfamiliar, and somewhat formidable looking, Clorox 360 machine. Park Manor and Abe’s Garden team members have been using this innovative and very effective cleaning technology for over a year to prevent the spread of a variety of illnesses. The use of the machine is not evidence of Coronavirus on our campus. It’s simply one of the numerous strategies being implemented to keep you and all of your neighbors healthy.

Physical Therapy: In keeping with Tennessee Department of Health recommendations, beginning Monday, May 18, 2020, Total Wellness Therapy will resume providing physical therapy services at Park Manor and Abe’s Garden. In conjunction with these services, and until further notice, the following standards and protocols will be maintained by all therapists working on our campus:

  • Test negative for COVID-19
  • State in writing that they are providing services exclusively to individuals on our campus
  • Successfully complete COVID-19, infection control, in-service training
  • Continue having their temperatures taken upon entering the building
  • Continue wearing gloves and masks while in the building
  • Continue disinfecting equipment following each therapy session

CDC AND TDOH RECOMMENDATIONS AND GUIDELINES

Visitation Guidelines: On June 10, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee released new guidelines for limited, safe visitation options at Tennessee’s long-term care facilities, while keeping their resident populations safe from COVID-19.

The Park Manor /Abe’s Garden community has met all the following safe visitation prerequisites:

  • Testing of all staff and residents at least once
  • No COVID-19 case in residents or staff members in the previous 28 days
  • Compliant with Board for Licensing Health Care Facilities regulations and infection control guidelines
  • Overall stability of the disease burden present in the community where the facility is located

CDC recommendations regarding cloth face masks: To safely remove a used cloth mask, be careful not to touch your eyes, nose, and mouth when removing your cloth face covering; and wash hands immediately after removing it. Face coverings should be routinely washed in a washing machine and dried in a dryer. Washing frequency depends on how frequently it is used.

If you don’t have access to a washing machine, you may handwash your mask.  You can handwash a fabric mask the same way you would handwash delicate items with liquid detergent, you may also use any hand soap. 1.) Wet the mask and rub vigorously with soap to lather.  2.) Soak the mask in hot water and soap for 30 minutes to ensure you’ve killed all the germs. 3.) Rinse, and line-dry or dry on a sanitized surface.

Nebulizer Guidelines: CDC guidelines for using nebulizers have changed. Residents, or family members of residents, receiving nebulizer breathing treatments, please contact Donna Finto-Burks or Walter Wilson for current guidelines.

ABE’S GARDEN HAPPENINGS

As with everywhere else in the world, the last few months at Abe’s Garden have been challenging in ways no one could have anticipated; and the nature of what we do has changed dramatically. Through it all, residents and team members continue to embrace joy.

We’re extremely honored to care for our residents. We spend time with them outside, in their suites, or in common areas at least twice daily to ensure they’re shown a lot love and know how much we enjoy their company. Each day, Abe’s Garden LECs and care partners are visiting individually with residents, providing engagement items that can be recycled or sanitized.

While in-person visits with loved ones have been restricted in the last few months, team members across culinary services, direct care, leadership and life engagement have embraced one-on-one time with residents as extra opportunities to not only socialize, but to monitor physical and mental wellbeing. These interactions have strengthened relationships and provided residents and team members with countless stories, laughs and treasured moments.

We’re also very grateful for your patience, perseverance, and understanding as we continuously adapt and seek to elevate the care of your loved one.

Wondering how we’ve been keeping your loved one purposefully engaged?  In recent weeks, we have:

  • Danced
  • Received and answered letters from Ensworth 3rd grade students
  • Celebrated Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day and birthdays
  • Laughed every day
  • Shared visits with you via video calls and window visits
  • Watched the Blue Angels fly overhead in recognition of us and our fellow essential workers
  • Enjoyed Zoom and other technology-enabled musical performances by cellist Nicholas Gold and Blair School of Music students ages five through seventeen
  • Started planting in the garden
  • Soaked in sunshine in the courtyard
  • Enjoyed drinking lots of plain and flavored water daily. LEC Shawn made a cool hydration cart. She and her fellow LEC’s are visiting each Abe’s Garden resident to encourage them to increase their fluid intake and see if they can assist in any other way.
  • Receiving cards with encouraging messages from West End Community Church members. Residents really appreciate these!
  • Enjoyed hair and nail pampering
  • Gardened and planned additional vegetables to plant 
  • Shared, reminisced and laughed a lot

Resident quotes:

  • “I could just sit here all day.” ~ a resident while in the courtyard listening to Elvis songs
  • “That was fun. Can we do it again?” ~ a resident after walking around the courtyard for the fourth time…and then she went around a fifth time
  • “Look at all those birds, guess they like it here as much as we do.” ~ a resident while observing winged visitors at the birdfeeder
  • “That was a great lunch. I love the food here.” ~ a resident who compliments the food every day
  • “I want to hear them again.” ~ a resident after a Zoom performance by the young students at Blair School of Music. (She also enjoys Nicholas Gold’s weekly Zoom performances
  • You don’t have to do a lot to show you care, just talk to me.”

Hair Salon: The Abe’s Garden hair salon is open. Hair stylists do not work at other salons.  The salon is disinfected thoroughly between appointments, and the stylists wear masks and gloves.

PARK MANOR

RESIDENT PROTOCOLS AND REMINDERS

Our organization is continuing with the conservative approaches that contributed to the wonderful, COVID-19 negative test results and the 0 known cases on the campus to date. Leadership and clinical team members meet daily to develop a thoughtful plan to phase in “new normal” campus operations and look at a phased reopening including Park Manor meals being served in the dining room, the return of live musical performers, and most importantly, when friends and family members may visit. We’re not there yet, but we will be.  For now, please continue to support your loved one in staying safe at home on our campus.

We will continue keeping you informed weekly, at a minimum. Residents may anticipate printed updates in the mailbox by their door every Wednesday, with similar information available on Message Now TV/ Channel 100. Residents' primary family contact and this web page will be updated weekly, as well. 

Residents, remember to check Channel 100 for health and safety updates, trivia questions, riddles, etc.

Resident Requirements: To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and maintain health and social connections, we recommend that Park Manor residents continue to:

  • Maintain 6 feet physical distancing
  • Properly wear a cloth mask over nose and mouth at all times outside of apartment
  • Exercise and walk in the courtyard
  • Wash hands frequently
  • Schedule Facetime or Skype calls, requesting assistance when needed

Cloth masks:  It is understandable that wearing a protective mask may be uncomfortable. However, safety remains our top priority.  There are fabric masks available for independent and assisted living residents that tie in the back of the head. If residents would like one of these masks, they may request one from a concierge team member.

Team members are wearing masks at all times when on the campus, except while eating or alone in their office.

Transportation and Exiting the Community: At this time, transportation is only provided for independent and assisted living residents needing transportation to a physician. We continue to recommend using virtual communication such as phone calls and video conferencing to contact doctors whenever possible. If an in-person doctor’s office appointment is needed, transportation is now available to drive residents to/from essential medical visits Monday through Friday. Only one resident or one married couple will be permitted in the vehicle with the driver during each trip. Please contact the front desk to reserve transportation as soon as a doctor’s appointment has been scheduled.

Residents may only leave Park Manor in a car for essential doctor visits. Currently, most visits are NOT considered essential and many doctor visits are being conducted remotely. Prior to appointment dates, residents or their designated family member should call the physician's office to confirm that the appointment is essential. If assistance contacting a physician's office is needed, please notify the concierge desk. 

Doctor visits will not result in a 14-day isolation. Only a hospital visit or overnight stay off-campus results in a 14-day isolation.

The elevators to the parking garage are locked temporarily with no key card access. This new process is being implemented temporarily to reduce the possibility of bypassing the Park Manor front door, health safety screening process.

Each time a resident leaves the building, they will be asked to sign out and will have their temperature taken upon their return.

Hospital overnight stays: If your loved one goes to the hospital for any illness or injury, they are required to:

  • Sign out at the front desk before leaving the building
  • Contact Walter Wilson or Donna Finto-Burks prior to returning    
  • Have a COVID-19 test prior to returning
  • Have a 14-day isolation period upon their return

Visitors: Until further notice and for the safety of residents, family members are not allowed in Park Manor or Abe’s Garden buildings. See “Park Manor Visits” for virtual, window and outdoor visit scheduling and protocols. If you have questions about a medically necessary family visit, please contact Beverly Theis at btheis@abesgarden.org or 615.997.3038.

Grocery Orders: Park Manor residents should now bring their grocery list, including name and apartment number, to the front desk by 4:00pm on Monday. Groceries will be delivered to their apartment the next day. Note: paper products should still be purchased from the Park Manor cart store.

Medications: If your loved one is an independent living resident who requires a family member to refill their medication reminder boxes, we have notified them to bring their empty box to the front desk before you arrive at Park Manor and a team member will return the filled box to them. To facilitate this process, please buy an additional box, write your loved one’s name on it and fill it at home. Then, bring the filled and labeled medication box in a bag to the Park Manor front door vestibule. We check this area often as well as immediately after we see someone leave an item there.

Hair Salon: The Park Manor hair salon is open. Hair stylists do not work at salons other than those on our campus.  The salon is disinfected thoroughly between appointments, and the stylists wear masks and gloves. Park Manor residents are required to wear masks.

Following is information from Hearthstone® As you may know, John Zeisel, the founder of Hearthstone® Institute, serves on the Abe’s Garden Board of Directors. Additionally, numerous care and engagement approaches integrated at Abe’s Garden, including Hearthside Book Club®, were developed by Hearthstone®. Finally, Abe’s Garden and Hearthstone® are continuing to collaborate to develop innovative approaches to support people with Alzheimer’s disease and their family and professional caregivers.

Hearthside Book Club stories are evidence-based, engaging, adult appropriate books designed for people living with cognitive challenges. They are created and field- tested through a grant from the National Institute of Health by the Hearthstone Research Team. One of the books is brand new and is called “Staying Healthy.” This book includes easy-to-understand tips for staying healthy and engaged during this trying time.

 Simply CLICK HERE to Access the Free Content Now

Hearthside Book Club® stories can be downloaded as PDF files, so you can view them on any tablet or smartphone. Or if your loved one prefers paper, you can print out hard copies of the booklets for them.

Watch and listen to the stories by using videobooks. These can even be accessed on any Smart TV or streaming device (like Roku or Apple TV) by using your YouTube app and searching for "Hearthside Book Club Videobooks." View All Videobooks

You can use this versatile activity in a variety of ways:

  •  You can print a copy of the story for your loved one and encourage them to independently engage in these evidence-based stories (or download the PDF version of the book to a tablet).
  • You and your loved one can read the story together and discuss it. We have included a few discussion questions within the stories to get you started.
  • Your loved one can watch and read along to the "video book" versions of the stories.
  • Your loved one can just enjoy listening to the video book (like an audiobook).
