At Life Care Center of Aurora, residents are – and have always been – our highest priority.
We are working closely with the Colorado Department of Health, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the local health department to ensure we are taking the appropriate steps at this time. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, we have been following the latest guidelines, from both state and federal authorities, including the CDC.
Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our residents, nursing staff and other care providers. They are on the front line of this unprecedented outbreak. Our staff is trained in the proper use of PPE and are following all relevant guidelines in infection control. Our associates are the true heroes, and I am amazed by them each and every day as they show up to care for the residents as they would their own family members.
We'll continue to provide regular updates to loved ones and to state and local officials. Here are the latest details from our facility:
In addition to reaching out to us, the ombudsman is available should families wish to speak with her:
