Coronavirus Update (COVID-19)

Vaccine Clinic at The Reutlinger

Vaccine Clinics are rolling out across the Eskaton’s Family of Services

The Reutlinger Community continued response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Eskaton began scheduling COVID-19 vaccine clinics in our communities as soon as the opportunity arose.  This process was accomplished through the state pharmacy program in collaboration with CVS and Walgreens pharmacies. We have also had county public health and a private health system reach out to assist our staff and residents to obtain a vaccination.

Our first clinic was held at Eskaton Care Center Fair Oaks on Dec. 30th where staff and residents received the first of two doses from Walgreens staff.  Since then, other communities have either finished their first clinic, or are scheduled for their first clinic in the next three to four weeks.  This includes affordable housing, residential living and care centers. We are very excited to add this option to our toolbox of interventions designed to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  We are hopeful that the vaccines will bring us a step closer to opening our communities to family and friends once again.

For more information on the vaccine schedule where your loved one resides, please contact the community directly.

Communications

We deliver communication updates twice per month to our residents and their families. We provide weekly communications to our staff via letter, phone or email. These communications are provided below for residential living, rehabilitation and skilled nursing.  Virtual tours, and on-site visits, can be scheduled directly with loved ones by contacting our community.

Live Well at Home – Non-Medical Home Care

For Older Adults and their Families

For Clients and Caregivers

 

We continue to follow diligent infection control protocols in each of our communities per CDC and CDPH guidelines.

 

Protect yourself at home and in the community:

  • Practice social distancing (6 feet or more distance from others) when possible. Stay away from anyone coughing or sneezing – particularly, if you do not know the person.
  • Practice good hand washing/ hand hygiene frequently.
  • If you are sick: Stay home and self-isolate if you have flu symptoms or a fever.
  • If you are sick, call the physician, clinic or hospital before you visit them. Do not go to a clinic or hospital with symptoms without calling first – they will instruct you on the proper procedures.
  • The CDPH and CDC now recommend the use of a cloth face covering when in public places to limit transmission of the virus.
