How We’re Touring Guests Safely at RLC

Welcome to Capital Oaks Retirement Community!

You may have heard the phrase, "Worry less. Live more." At RLC, we love that approach to life. We're committed to being a worry-free retirement community so our residents can enjoy their retirement years to their fullest. An important part of that worry-free promise is making sure everyone feels safe. Over the past year, safety has taken on a whole new meaning. We're proud of the way our communities have responded to the pandemic and adapted as needed.

If you're considering a move to one of our independent living communities, we'd like you to know what our response looked like and what safety measures are still in place today. May this article provide added peace of mind for you and your loved ones as you continue with your retirement plans and dreams.

Going Above and Beyond

Right away, when Covid-19 reached the United States, RLC built an incredible safety and wellness plan with protocols in place to ensure the protection of our residents and teammates. Because the corporate office maintains strong relationships with the live-in managers in all of our communities, we can intimately understand the environment – both physically and emotionally – and make informed decisions.

From the beginning, we have done everything required, and then some. Frequent conversations with local health departments kept us current, and we often heard we were exceeding expectations.

We have kept a diligent eye on virus-related symptoms and testing in each of our communities. We continue to provide masks, take regular temperatures, and sanitize high-touch areas. We also maintain control of the front entry in all locations.

When local guidelines closed restaurants, we offered room service and had hallway happy hours, bingo, and exercises classes. We also started parking lot fitness and walking groups in many of our communities. And, understanding the importance of staying socially engaged, we put measures in place allowing friends and family to safely visit while staying properly distanced with our residents and guests.

For families in immediate need of support through a move-in, we worked closely with our seasoned live-in managers to establish proper protocols for a safe and easy move.

Today, we remain intentional about protecting our residents' health and happiness, and we would love for you to come and experience this for yourself. Where it's allowable, and within local guidelines, we invite you to take a tour and see what worry-free, independent living could look like for you.

What to Expect on a Tour

We want everyone who visits our communities to feel as comfortable as possible, the way retirement was intended. With that said, all visitors, including scheduled tours, are temperature-checked, asked to wear a mask, and of course, adhere to standard social distancing guidelines and group size limits.

In the event someone forgets his or her mask, we provide complimentary disposable masks. During visits, we encourage all guests and residents to wash their hands frequently and use hand sanitizer available at various stations throughout the property. You will also see hallway signs, floor markers, and local guidelines posted where necessary to remind residents and guests of the 6ft distancing guidelines. Something else you're sure to discover is just how comfortable and fun it can be living in an RLC community!

Ways to Engage Outside of a Tour

If local jurisdictions don't allow for an in-person tour, we offer personal tours from the comfort of your home. Contact us to learn more about options that are most comfortable and convenient for you.

In addition to a tour, here are three more ways you can get to know us a little better:

  1. Research your community: We suggest finding the RLC community near you, and then visiting that community's web page for information. You can look at floor plans, read reviews, learn about the excellent services and amenities that are part of all-inclusive living, and much more.

  2. Head to Facebook: We continue to offer a robust calendar of socially-distanced events and activities. Many of these are captured on our Facebook pages. Each location has its own page, so you get a true sense of the joy and kinship we've built there. You can find a direct link to your community's Facebook account in the upper right corner of the web page.

  3. Visit the blog. If you're still deciding on the idea of independent living or have specific questions, be sure to check out our blog. It's full of helpful topics and can be a great resource for you!

Today more than ever, it's important for seniors to ask if it's better to live alone at home or in a community setting with access to healthy nutrition, social interaction, and precautions to lower the risk of infection, such as frequent housekeeping. For many, choosing an independent retirement community like RLC has been such a positive move.

 And in other good news, Resort Lifestyle communities have apartments available to rent right now. Call to learn more about the all-inclusive lifestyle and floor plan options. Locate the community nearest you!
