Last week, the Centers for Living and Rehabilitation (CLR) was able to begin allowing residents to receive visits from family and friends.
“First of all, we are so excited to reunite our residents with their family members,” said Suzanne Anair, the facility’s administrator. “This has been a long and difficult time for many of them, and we are grateful for any visiting that can happen safely. We know our residents and their families are very eager to see one another again.”
Suzanne took a few minutes to answer questions about what families and friends of CLR’s residents should expect.
When are visits permitted?
Visits are being scheduled in 15-minute increments 1 – 4 p.m. daily, but we will very gladly extend and adjust as necessary to allow families to see their loved ones.
Do you have a specific area within the CLR grounds in which the visits are to take place?
We do have a specific area. In accordance with state guidelines, our visiting area is outdoors in a pleasant spot behind CLR. It is near the handicapped parking, so it’s easy for families to access.
What's the procedure for making an appointment for a visit?
To make an appointment, families should call 802-447-1547, the main number, and the person answering the phone will be able to assist them with complete scheduling and meeting place instructions.
What important reminders or instructions do you have for visitors?
To follow the state’s guidelines, only two visitors are allowed per visit. They need to wear masks at all times. They will be screened when they arrive. The screening includes answering questions about exposure to COVID-19 and symptoms and having their temperatures taken. All visitors must also provide contact information for tracing purposes.
