To all our residents and vistiors; the management of The Pines want you to know that we continue to take the threat of COVID-19 very seriously and are following the instructions as per the United States and Maine Centers of Disease Control to help prevent its spread. We appreciate and thank our staff and residents for all the work they are doing to keep everyone safe! Everyday we learn something new which, at times, requires us to adjust how we take care of our residents and property. In accord with current State and Federal CDC advice we have implemented the following:
Effective Thursday March 19, 2020 – Until Further Notice
Visitor Restrictions - As per CDC recommendations, any visitor that must interact with a resident or staff should wear a mask.
We have made the difficult decision to limit visitors to only those necessary for resident care and community operations, such as caregivers and aides, or visitors for loved ones receiving hospice or end-of-life care (who must clear our screening processes). Private aides may only be allowed in the building if they are pre-registered by a resident and if the aide is approved (meaning they are deemed to be absolutely necessary) and successfully screened (please call the Business Office with the name of your aid’s place of employment). Access is restricted only to the resident’s apartment home. Friends and family are not considered essential visitors.
Deliveries of supplies, groceries, or any other item by individuals/vendors from outside the community (such as UPS, FedEx, grocery store or a pharmacy) must be left at the front door of Pinewood Manor (the vendor can call you on the phone system to let you know it is there) or at the front doors of apartments at The Pines at Ocean Park. Residents at Pinewood Manor should not buzz people in from outside the community to make deliveries to individual apartments.
The Business and Facilities Offices are closed to unauthorized visitors.
