A Complete Guide to
Sonata Safety Practices

WE ARE SONATA SAFE


Well before the pandemic, our signature Sonata Safe programming provided residents and families added peace of mind. Sonata Safe is more than a promise we make to our residents. It’s reassurance that you and your loved ones are cared for in a safe and healthy environment, no matter what conditions might arise in the outside world.

COVID POLICY


Sonata’s focus remains on the health and safety of our residents, families, and team members. We continue to follow all recommendations from Florida’s Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA), the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), and Sonata’s standard infection control policies.

We do not require residents, visitors, and staff to routinely wear masks, but ask anyone who may be immunocompromised to follow their physician’s recommendations regarding mask usage. Learn more about Sonata’s facial covering requirements.

VACCINATION


Promoting and protecting the health of loved ones requires nothing less than a fully coordinated effort that meets the demands of a changed world, including securing Covid-19 vaccines for our existing and future residents!

Many of our residents have received the Covid-19 vaccine and we continue to work with our new residents and their families to secure vaccinations prior to moving into a Sonata community.

SOCIALIZATION

Social isolation has serious health consequences for seniors. Our lifestyle directors keep residents engaged with life enrichment programs that are safe but provide a social outlet.

Even during the pandemic, our life enrichment programming keeps body, mind and soul happy and healthy. Research shows that people who engage in meaningful activities are at a much lower risk of developing the health conditions associated with social withdrawal and loneliness. Learn more about the impact of isolation on well-being.

“Loneliness acts as a fertilizer for other diseases. The biology of loneliness can accelerate the buildup of plaque in arteries, help cancer cells grow and spread, and promote inflammation in the brain leading to Alzheimer’s disease.” — Steve Cole, Ph.D.

EMERGENCIES

Sonata is prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws our way. In the event of a severe weather event or other natural disaster, our first priority is to ensure the comfort and safety of our residents and staff.

Our Hurricane and Disaster Preparedness Plan was developed with input from the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) and includes precautionary guidelines and procedures developed from our own extensive experience in hurricane preparedness. At Sonata, residents benefit from reinforced construction, expanded generator capacity and 24-hour staffing during a storm.

TECHNOLOGY

To complement our award-winning care, built-in safety features and technology have been integrated into the design of Sonata Senior Living. Our sanitation procedures consist of frequent cleaning of commonly touched surfaces using an advanced technology called electrostatic spray disinfection. It’s much more effective than conventional sanitation methods used in most senior living communities.

Safety technology at Sonata extends to our architecture and design innovations, electronic health records, and wireless emergency call system and monitoring devices. Even our newest communities will feature state-of-the-art touchless technology to promote safety in senior living.

EDUCATION


Education is an important part of the Sonata Safe mindset. Senior Management works closely with our associates to ensure safety guidelines are well understood and properly implemented.

Our professional caregivers receive ongoing training and education not only in pandemic illness and infection prevention, but in core competencies and skills necessary to maintain Sonata’s exceptionally high standards of care. Serenades Memory Care, for example, provides ongoing training to help employees grow professionally while applying the latest findings in the field of Alzheimer’s research.
