Thanks to a U.S. government program, our residents were among the first group to be vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration. Hosting on-site community vaccination clinics in partnership with CVS Health provided an opportunity for our residents to get vaccinated and 90 percent of our residents participated. While helping protect our residents and associates from Coronavirus (COVID-19) remains a priority, Brookdale’s vaccination rate, enhanced cleaning protocols and infection-control measures mean that we’re looking forward to a recovery phase.
Touring Your Brookdale Community Virtually or In-Person
Good news! Our communities are open for scheduled visits, subject to local and state regulatory guidance, and we would love to give you a taste of the lifestyle our residents experience every day.
To tour your future community in person, reach out via phone or email to arrange your visit. When you speak with a local community advisor, they will help you reserve your personalized tour time, answer any questions you might have and inform you of the latest health and safety protocols in place at the community.
On the day of your personalized visit, we ask that you adhere to certain basic health and safety standards, including:
- Wearing a mask
- Social distancing
- Participating in a Coronavirus (COVID-19) screening process
Being vaccinated is not required to tour a community. However, the CDC does recommend people age 75 and older get vaccinated. If you haven’t received your vaccination yet, you likely have a few different options available to you. If you require additional assistance or information, you can ask your Brookdale community contact for help, as we have 90% of our residents company-wide vaccinated, thanks to recently completed on-site clinics in partnership with CVS Health.
Moving in to Your Brookdale Community
If, after your tour, you decide to make our community your new home, congratulations! We are excited for the opportunity to serve you. Your local community team will be able to assist you with the particulars of your move-in logistics, but in general, here’s what you can expect during move in now that we have completed the vaccination clinics at our communities.
Residents do not require testing or quarantine upon move in, except under limited circumstances. If you have had a direct, known exposure to COVID-19, we will ask you to settle into your new apartment and remain isolated for 14 days from the date of your last known exposure. Additionally, some state and local regulatory guidance mandates that all new residents be tested and/or quarantined for a period of time before they engage with the wider community. For the health and safety of everyone in the community, we will abide by local, state and CDC guidelines as we welcome new residents.
We ask that all new residents choose to follow the health and safety protocols that are in place at each community while focusing on getting connected to your community.
A note on vaccination: New residents are not required to be vaccinated to make our community their home. We do recommend that residents choose to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, and we are working diligently to create a culture that promotes universal adoption of the vaccine with the recent completion of on-site vaccinations clinics as part of a US first priority program in partnership with CVS Health.
If you have not been vaccinated prior to your move, we ask that you consult with your physician to make the choice that is appropriate for your particular situation. And if you need any additional help or information specifically regarding vaccination, you can reach out to the Health and Wellness Director at your community.
