Nazareth Home is a great place to continue the journey we call life. An integral part of our person-centered approach to care is our diverse activities program for residents and their families. We combine pastoral care and activities to enhance elder’s spiritual and emotional fulfillment.
Our programs are designed to enrich the body, mind, and spirit. With opportunities for group outings to many local sites, such as Slugger Field and Churchill Downs, our residents have lots of fun. We also partner with The Kentucky Center for the Arts, participating in their Arts in Healing Program, bringing talented and unique artists to our home. The Louisville Free Public Library provides elders with large print or audio books, and we offer iPads for our residents use. These are just a few of the activities we provide to meet our elders’ diverse hobbies and interest.
The past two weeks have been filled with news, guidance and change. I want to speak with you about how Nazareth Home has met the challenges of new information and separations that have come with our required responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With a national emergency now declared, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has restricted ALL skilled nursing visitors except in end of life situations.
Nazareth Home is taking precautionary measures and restricting visitors from visiting both campuses due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Nazareth Home strives to make the move from home to long-term care as simple as possible.
