At Brookhouse Home, families of our residents are a very important part of our community. We are committed to keeping you informed about current activities and things that may change from time to time. The ultimate example is during these times of COVID concerns. Although our restrictions have relaxed somewhat, we are cautiously moving forward and staying on top of the changing guidelines from the MA Dept. of Public Health. If you or your loved one have any questions, encourage them to talk with me or with RN Paul Murray, Clinical Director. Recognizing that each one of our residents is unique, so are the rules as they apply to each person and her abilities. Email [email protected] or [email protected] or call 978-740-2493.

Warmest regards,

Updates to Families

December 2022

Dear Brookhouse families,

December is a festive month. It may be full of gatherings with family and friends. In addition to COVID-19, other respiratory viruses, like the flu and RSV, are circulating in Massachusetts and other states at high levels that we haven’t seen in several years. At Brookhouse, we are still diligent about mask-wearing and hand hygiene for all employees and residents. In our most recent communication from MA DPH, we have been issued clear guidance specifically for holiday gatherings and visitors to our facility.

Our goal at Brookhouse is to take a thoughtful approach by asking all visitors to wear masks and hand sanitize upon entering. In addition, we would encourage all visitors to test yourselves at home prior to your visit to Brookhouse. If you feel you would like us to test you, we can offer that but it would need to be outside with a wait of 15 minutes for test results before you may enter. Please stay at home if you have any symptoms of illness or are not feeling 100% well. For families who will be taking their loved one out for the holiday at any time, please limit the group to a small number and avoid taking the resident to a restaurant or anywhere people won’t be masked. And, as always, please share your plans with us if you are taking a resident out at any time for any reason. We appreciate the good communication we have with you!

We at Brookhouse wish you a very happy holiday season and a healthy new year!
