Good afternoon,
 
On Monday, August 10th, the New Jersey Department of Health published Executive Directive NO. 20-026 titled Directive for the Resumption of Services in all Long-Term Care Facilities. This 41 page document gives facilities a very specific and detailed path to resume some normal activities of daily living in the long-term care setting which includes indoor visitation, communal dining and small group activities..
 
The directive is broken down into stages and phases and each stage is defined by a certain set of criteria. Our team met this morning to begin the process of creating all of the necessary policies and procedures that must be met in order to move forward. This will take time and all documents will need to be sent to the Department of Health for approval and review before we can began to move through the phases.
 
Please know that we are making this our first priority as we know that you are anxious to see your loved ones on a more regular basis. We appreciate your patience and we will continue to update you on our progress. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions whatsoever.
 
Sincerely,
Lior Benisti

Good afternoon,
 
In order to move forward to the next phase of reopening, our team at Imperial Healthcare is working hard on implementing the new guidelines released by the Department of Health on August 10th .One of the requirements is that all communications, data and information regarding COVID-19 must be displayed on our website. We will be introducing our new Imperial Healthcare website to our families and friends within the next few weeks Here you will find a page dedicated to all recent data and on-goings in the facility should there be a new outbreak.
 
While we work through these guidelines, we need to ask our families and guardians to please click on the link above, complete the Social Media Consent form and return it to the facility via email at admissions@imperialhealthcarenj.com, regular post or on your next outdoor visit. It is also important that we have an email address for at least one family member per resident. In the event of a second outbreak, we will be using Constant Contact and our website to send and post weekly updates.
 
On another note, our Activity Department has an opening for a full-time employee. If you have a friend or know a college student who won’t be returning to campus right away and would like to become a member of our Imperial family, please send an email to actimperial@yahoo.com.

Good evening,
As we work through the new guidelines and prepare to progress through to the next phase of reopening, we will continue to schedule our outdoor visits throughout the next few weeks.
 
As the weather becomes cooler, we are asking family members to bring a jacket, coat or sweater for those loved ones who do not have one at the facility. Our staff will make sure that our residents are dressed appropriately depending on the weather.
 
We will be sending out the information and application next week for a family member to be considered for an Essential Caregiver role. The goal of this designation is to provide supportive and hands-on care to a resident. This would have been the family member who had this role when the resident was in the home.
Please look for more information in the next email.
 
Flu season is fast-approaching and flu vaccines will play a critical role in helping prevent a possible second outbreak in healthcare facilities. Please be on the lookout for consent forms to have your loved one vaccinated for the flu.
 
Thank you for time and attention. Our entire Imperial team has been working diligently to meet all of the new guidelines so that we can move toward indoor visits. We also encourage you to visit our new website at imperialhealthcarenj.com for all of our COVID-19 updates and information.
 
Good evening Family and Friends,
Imperial Healthcare has been diligently working on our COVID-19 Outbreak Plan. This comprehensive plan should be available to access on our website by early next week. You will be able to find this on our COVID-19 information page.
 
As we continue to prepare to submit our plan to the New Jersey Department of Health, we have been actively stockpiling PPE, we continue to screen all employees, vendors and consulting doctors and paraprofessionals at the start of every shift, and we continue to test staff weekly.
 
Flu season is fast-approaching and flu vaccines will play a critical role in helping prevent a possible second outbreak in healthcare facilities. Consent forms will be sent to family members within the next week. Please sign and return these to us at your earliest convenience.
 
Thank you for your time and your patience. Please continue to reach out should you have any questions or concerns.
Sincerely,
Lior Benisti, LNHA
