To our Blakeford community:

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 situation, we are committed to keeping our community informed every step of the way. We know that you may have many questions during this unsettling time.

Like many senior living communities, we are prepared and well-equipped to handle situations like this. We are taking the highest level of precaution to keep our residents, patients, and employees safe. Please visit this link to see the protocols we have put in place.

Our team is meeting several times a day to assess the situation and adjust our plans accordingly. We are closely monitoring recommendations from the CDC and the Tennessee Department of Health. Though our protocols are changing rapidly, we can assure you of the following:

  • We are enforcing a no-visitor policy across all parts of our community, except for those with extreme circumstances.
  • All residents, patients, and employees are being screened regularly, and appropriate steps are being taken to address any possible risk.
  • Measures have been put into place to maintain the highest level of care for our residents and patients, while minimizing all outside contact.

We understand that this is undoubtedly a scary time for all, and we thank you for your continued trust. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this unprecedented challenge together.

If you have any specific questions or concerns, please contact Julie Dowd.
