A Message to Oaks Families and Friends

Tomorrow, as we pause to count our blessings and reflect on the many reasons we have to be grateful – even in this time of global pandemic – we are most thankful for our residents who call The Oaks of Louisiana home. We are thankful for our Oaks employees who daily provide dedicated and compassionate service to enhance the quality of life for independent, assisted living and skilled nursing residents. We are thankful for everyone who has and continues to work tirelessly to maintain a safe and healthy community. These past months have not been easy, especially emotionally as residents and families have been kept apart by governmental restrictions. Separation during the holidays will be even more emotionally difficult because holidays are for families. We understand residents and families want to be together. Our residents, however, are the most vulnerable to this virus.

One Savannah resident has plans to leave campus for the day and will be required per CDC guidelines to quarantine for 14 days upon return to The Oaks. All Health Center residents will remain on campus. Tower and Garden Apartment residents have been encouraged to stay on campus, but may spend the holiday off campus if they choose. Depending on the type and size of gathering they attend, they may be asked to self-quarantine for 14 days as well. Residents throughout campus will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Day lunch and all the trimmings.

As always, we will continue to follow CDC and Louisiana Department of Health guidelines and take all the necessary procedures and protocols, including regular screening. The continued health and well-being of our residents is our top priority as always. Thank you for your support and understanding. Have a healthy and happy Thanksgiving.

Nearly one month has passed since our last update and, as they say, no news is good news. Actually, it’s GREAT NEWS!

The visitation schedule is quite full on most days and the beautiful weather we have had has made visits outside quite pleasant.

To schedule a visit at Health Center, call Clara Wilkinson at 212-2000. To schedule an outdoor or conference room visit at Savannah, call  Adam Phillips at 455-5023.

During his press conference last week, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced a pilot program will soon be launched to allow managed visitation in a small number of skilled nursing facilities. The facilities eligible for the pilot program will be in parishes that have a positivity rate of 5 percent or lower AND the facility has not had a case of COVID-19 for the previous 14 days. More details will be forthcoming from the Louisiana Department of Health.  LDH will contact facilities eligible for the program. At this time, Region 7, which includes Caddo Parish, is not eligible. 

When the Louisiana Department of Health announces changes to the visitation restrictions to skilled nursing facilities and provides new visitor regulations, we will announce new changes through our website and on social media.

Updated – September 10

As Gov. John Bel Edwards and his medical team continue working out details of the new proclamation advancing the state to a Phase 3 reopening beginning Friday, we are cautiously optimistic about what that means for visits to Health Center at Live Oak and Savannah at The Oaks. It has been a challenging time not only for residents and their families but Oaks staff who have provided great care and shown great compassion to residents who have missed their families and their visits terribly these past six months. It was a such a boost to their spirits when window visits were allowed with Phase 2. While Phase 3 states that “visits to senior care facilities and hospitals can resume,” the Louisiana Department of Health has not yet released any information about resuming visits. Therefore, visitor restrictions mandated by the Centers for Disease Control and the Louisiana Department of Health will remain in place until notice is received that restrictions are relaxed or lifted. What we do know at this time is that when visitations resume, they will be limited and expand gradually based on LDH guidelines. Please know we will resume visitations as soon as possible following whatever mandates issued by the LDH. We ask for your continued support and patience. We will update on our website, oaksofla.com, and our Facebook page.
