A Complete Guide to
Sonata Safety Practices

WE ARE SONATA SAFE


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.

As of early May, Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, lifted many remaining COVID-19 restrictions across the state, especially for vaccinated residents. To ensure safety for all, Sonata will continue to follow the most recent CDC Healthcare Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations.

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 current 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.

GUIDELINES


Sonata Senior Living follows all recommendations from local, state and federal agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As guidelines change and evolve due to increased vaccinations, we are set-up to shift with them and comply quickly. Our current practices include:

  • Continued temperature screen for all visitors
  • Continued source control measures (face masks, social distancing, etc)
  • Temperature/symptom screening and testing for new residents
  • Continued sanitation measures and disinfection technology
  • Social distancing and signage

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 a pandemic, our life enrichment programming keeps body, mind and soul happy and healthy. Take a look at the creative ways we’re keeping our residents energized.

“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., Director of the Social Genomics Core Laboratory, University of California, Los Angeles

VISITATION


Sonata Senior Living is continues to welcome visitors and guests into our communities, offering in-person and virtual tours at our independent living, assisted living and memory care communities.

If you have questions related to updated guidelines on visitation, we have the answers! Call a Sonata near you for more information.

TECHNOLOGY


To complement our award-winning care, built-in safety features and technology have been integrated into the design of Sonata Senior Living. Heightened 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 continues to work closely with our associates to ensure safety guidelines are well understood and properly implemented, even as they change.

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.

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.
