TEMPORARY VISITATION SUSPENSION effective 3/14/2020
St. Andre Health Care is temporarily suspending all visitors at the facility effective immediately for the safety of your loved one.
Ill visitors and healthcare personnel are the most likely sources of introduction of COVID-19 into a facility. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends aggressive visitor restrictions even before COVID-19 is identified in a community or facility.
Given the congregate nature and residents served (e.g., older adults often with underlying chronic medical conditions), nursing home populations are at the highest risk of being affected by COVID-19. These actions being taken are preventive measures at this time.
In addition, all of our employees are being screened daily for any exposure and symptoms.
Please note that there are other ways to communicate with your loved one during this period:  telephone calls, Skype, Facetime, etc.  If you would like assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to our staff and we will assist in the connection.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any other member of management at 207-282-5171

The only exception will be in compassionate cases where a resident in in his/her last stages of life on Palliative or Hospice Care and will be limited to the resident’s room only.
