Update 8/31/21

Rhythms Home Care is pleased to see the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s (CDPHE)latest mandate that all healthcare workers in the state of Colorado receive the COVID-19 vaccine by October 31st. At Rhythms Home Care we are already in process of requiring the COVID-19 vaccine for our team members as Christian Living Communities, our parent company requires our team members to become fully vaccinated by October 1st, a full 30 days ahead of the state mandate. To read more about the new CDPHE mandate please click here. The health and safety of residents and team members are paramount as we continue to battle the COVID-19 virus in our community, especially as Delta variant cases continue to rise in our state. The vaccine is the extra protection needed.

CLC Requires Vaccinations for Team Members

After many conversations with clients, team members, community leaders and tracking the national conversation, the Christian Living Communities (CLC) ownership group is implementing a COVID-19 vaccine requirement. All Rhythms Home Care team members (other than those approved for exemption due to medical or religious reasons) must receive the full vaccine series for the COVID-19 virus by Friday, October 1st.

This is not a decision CLC leadership takes lightly.  Highly contagious variants, including the Delta variant, are exploding across our region and the United States, and COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are rising again. Data from CDPHE indicates that unvaccinated people are most vulnerable to infection and passing the virus to others. Each time a positive case is identified in a community, the community goes into “outbreak” status, which then significantly impacts the quality of life of residents, families, and other team members. Numerous senior living companies, health care entities, and government agencies now require all team members to be vaccinated. Additionally, 56 healthcare associations, including the American Medical Association and LeadingAge, have called for “all healthcare and long-term care employers to require their employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.”

CLC cherishes each team member and their vital contribution to our family of communities and services. We appreciate each individual’s commitment and loyalty during this most challenging time.

We care for the most at-risk citizens and are taking this essential step to require vaccinations to protect our communities including clients, team members, and their families such as young children or others that are unable to be vaccinated at this time.

We are doing our best to accommodate personal choices and individual opinions while taking the necessary steps to protect everyone. One of our central values is We! Care for Each Other; this value is displayed countless times each day in countless ways. Now is the time to show we care for each other by becoming vaccinated.

This requirement is in effect for our CLC ownership group, including Cappella of Pueblo West, Clermont Park, Dayspring Villa, Holly Creek, Someren Glen, Rhythms Home Care, and the Eagle Pointe Support Office as well as CLC-Cappella employees such as Executive Directors who work in our managed communities. In addition, Duet dining and Infinity Rehab team members will also be part of this requirement, and we are working with our other in-community business partners.

Over the next few days CLC leaders, human resources, and community/service leaders will answer questions and conduct training regarding this vaccine requirement.

We appreciate the continued support, patience, and love shown to each other within our CLC family of communities and services. We are committed to doing what we can to balance the health and happiness of everyone who lives and works in each of our communities and in our client’s homes.

Update 3/9/21

“I’m getting the vaccine for Family and Beloved Clients”
Rhythms team member Hadijah Nalumu received the COVID-19 Vaccine (first dose). What a Superhero!
Rhythms very own Janice Crowley was able to get vaccinated through Safeway Pharmacies recently. We are so thrilled that our team members have the opportunity to get vaccinated to keep the people we care for safe.

If you have not yet been vaccinated there are many places to sign up to make sure you can start your vaccine journey. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has a list of where to sign up and who is currently eligible to receive the vaccine.

Update 12/3/20

All 23 CLC-Cappella Communities Prepared to Receive COVID-19 Vaccine

Priority distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine to seniors and healthcare workers who are at the most risk of contracting the virus is welcome news. CLC-Cappella is ready to receive the vaccine to protect residents and associates in all 23 of our communities as soon as it is available. We remain in constant communication with state health departments, the CDC, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as details of the distribution process continue to develop.

Learn more about the COVID-19 Vaccine Plan here.

Update 12/1/20

The holidays have begun and in order to stay safe we highly recommend that everyone exercise caution and take extra safety steps during this holiday season. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued some holiday guidelines for all of us to consider if we choose to take part in a gathering.

  • Take into consideration the local county positivity rate before planning a gathering.
  • Those preparing food should wear a mask at all times.
  • If two or more households are gathering, everyone should wear a mask.
  • Keep the gathering small and short in duration to limit exposure risk.
  • If possible, have a window open or better yet, host the meal outside. Governor Polis has asked for no more than two households to gather together.
  • Attempt to maintain social distancing of six feet or more at all times.

With the surge in cases in our community and nationally, we all must do our part to stop the spread of the virus and protect those most vulnerable to the harsher effectives of this very contagious virus.

Rhythms Home Care’s commitment has always been to be a forward-thinking, company, evolving with the changing needs of our clients. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for older adults, and are proud to be owned by Christian Living Communities where aging is honored and celebrated.

As client and team member safety is our top concern we continue to follow all virus protocols and are monitoring the latest research, recommendations and are talking daily with epidemiologists and medical directors at the state level.
