Visiting a Loved One at MacIntosh

Mother and Daughter Hugging

We are thrilled to help our residents safely visit with their families! Understanding risk, but also recognizing the benefits of visits with loved ones, MacIntosh residents are able to enjoy visitation, with some guidance provided by the CDC and CMS in regards to the core principles of infection control to mitigate the risks to our population. If weather is permissible, outdoor visitation is highly encouraged.

Please note that visitation varies by community, we encourage you to contact your loved one’s community to check their abilities and schedule a visitation time. Communities must adhere to strict criteria and guidance provided by the CDC and Ohio Department of Health (ODH) in order to host visitations during these times.

Scheduling of visits: While scheduling visitation is not required and duration is not limited, we ask that every effort is made to visit during normal business hours, 9:00 am – 7:00 pm. Visitation varies by community, we encourage you to contact your loved one’s community to check their abilities.

Self-assessment:If you are not feeling well, or have had close contact with someone with SARS-CoV-2 infection in the prior 14 days please help us keep our residents safe and refrain from visiting until you are feeling better.

Visiting area: Guests may visit in resident rooms, designated visitation areas or outside, if weather permitting.

Number of visitors: Please maintain adequate social distancing during your visit. If you anticipate a large number of visitors or if your loved one has a roommate, please call the community in advance to make arrangements to visit in a common area that promotes proper social distancing.

During your visit: If your loved one has been fully vaccinated (14 days past their second vaccine dose) social distancing is not required.  Be sure to use proper hand hygiene before and after your visit.

Residents that are not fully vaccinated will be quarantined per CDC guidelines for 14 days upon arrival and not eligible for open visitation. Compassionate Care visits will be available upon requests.

Visitor arrival

  • Upon entry to the community, every visitor must wear a mask, pass our screening process, questionnaire and temperature reading.
  • Before and after your visit, please practice infection prevention including proper hand hygiene, maintaining social distancing with others in our community, and following mask protocols when in any common spaces.
  • Kids and pets are welcome to visit as long as a resident is not within a quarantine period. Kids must wear masks and stay with their family at all times.

If you should have any questions, please contact your loved one’s center. Please keep in mind that the MacIntosh Company is continuing to follow state and federal guidelines to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents and staff.
