In our continued commitment to keep you informed during this COVID-19 pandemic, we want to update you regarding our work to offer indoor visitations per Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) directives issued in November 2020.
At Sugar Fork Crossing we have met the criteria required for our community to offer indoor visitations. The measurement that continues to be variable is our county’s positivity rate. We are thrilled to share that our county rate has finally gone below the requirement and we can offer indoor visitations in our Assisted Living and Memory Support neighborhoods.
As a reminder, now that we can offer visits, visitors must also meet specific criteria. A COVID-19 test is recommended, but not required.
The following protocols are in place for visitations:
- Visits will be 20 minutes in length and by appointment only in a designated area, which you can schedule by calling the concierge at (765) 233-9360.
- Guests will have their temperature taken, wear masks, and use an alcohol rub before and after each visit.
- Guests and visitors must remain at least 6 feet apart from each other at all times.
Outdoor visits will remain available as the weather allows. We also encourage residents and families to connect via technology, such as video chat, letters, and care packages.
We will continue to do everything we can to offer indoor visitations at this time, but please remember that this can change at any time due to virus activity in our community or an increase in the positivity rate in our county. We will do our best to notify residents and their family members if our visitation status changes.
We know connections with loved ones and friends if vitally important to the health and happiness of those we serve, we will continue to look for creative ways to help preserve precious relationships.
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.

Safe Visit Update
Sugar Fork Crossing is pleased to announce that we will be offering outdoor visitation with up to 2 family members over the age of 12 starting June 15th.
In accordance with all state, federal, and CDC guidelines, certain measures will be taken to ensure safety and sanitation. Visits will be 20 minutes in length and by appointment only, which you can schedule by calling the concierge at (765) 205-2796. Guests will have their temperature taken, wear masks, and use an alcohol rub before and after each visit. Guests must sign our visitor agreement in accordance with the CDC guidelines for visitation in long-term care facilities, and the risks associated with such visits.
Guests and visitors must remain at least 6 feet apart from each other at all times. You may bring items of personal significance, such as food or gifts, and items are subject to being sanitized. In the event of inclement weather, visits will be rescheduled. Demaree Crossing is looking forward to having you visit with your loved ones, but we do ask that you take others into consideration. At this time, we would ask that you schedule one visit per week to allow everyone time. When scheduling, please let our concierge know whether your loved one is in memory care or in assisted living as we have created two visitation areas to accommodate everyone.
Our community continues to operate under the CDC restricted status but a newly formed Health and Happiness committee is evaluating how we can better balance crucial required health protocols with the mental well-being and happiness of residents. We will have more updates soon.

The community is currently working to put protocols in place to be in compliance while implementing these outdoor visitation policies. More information will be forthcoming as we are ready and able to put this into practice.
