Update from Administrator – July 1, 2020


Good Afternoon,

We hope that we find you all in good health,

In addition to ongoing virtual and window visits, we have begun to offer outdoor visits for our residents and their families.  These visits require appropriate PPE (masks) to be worn at all times and a social distance of 6 feet between you and your loved ones for the entirety of the visit. The specific guidelines and details regarding perimeter visits can be found on our website and Facebook page.


Please remember that the perimeter visits must be pre-scheduled to ensure safe and healthy visits for you, the residents, and our staff. You can schedule a visit by calling Sharon Director of Recreation at 203.459.5152 ext. 120 emailing us at


This week, the state DPH and members of the National Guard visited our center for a monitoring visit and found us to be in compliance. We continue to follow all CDC and state guidelines and receive regular updates on new guidelines that are offered.


The recreation team has been hard at work, trying to keep all of our residents entertained, and busy. We are always looking donations of board games and crafting material to use for the residents.


Staff Testing

Staff testing has begun; each staff member who has never tested positive for COVID will be tested on a weekly basis.


Weekly Call

Our next “Town Hall” meeting is scheduled for tomorrow at 4pm.  We will discuss more detailed information during this time. We encourage residents and family members to contact me with any questions you have about the care we are offering. Our commitment is to be as transparent as possible and work to address any issues that arise. This is an incredibly challenging time and we will continue to do all we can to get through this, together. A reminder that resident-specific questions cannot be answered during these calls or on our Facebook page so please reach out to us directly if needed.

Thank you and please stay safe and healthy! Although the weather outside is becoming warmer and sunnier each day, it is important to remember that it is still necessary to be cautious and aware that the risks of COVID-19 are still present.

We hope that all of you have a wonderful July 4th weekend. Stay safe and healthy!

Thank you,

Rita Lynch and the Maefair Team
