Our amazing caregivers and management teams have worked hard to keep the COVID-19 virus out of our BAKA Communities. Unfortunately, rising numbers in Wisconsin have everyone scared and worried. For this reason, we will post a weekly update every Wednesday on our Facebook Pages and the BAKA website. We will also post the weekly update at the front entrances of our communities. (See the last page of this update to view the visitation status of each community).

The next update will be posted to our Facebook Pages and the BAKA website on Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

Open to Visitation: requires all visitors to comply with the following:

  • Come directly from home wearing freshly laundered clothing
  • Empty bladder/bowel prior to visiting – visitors MAY NOT use public bathrooms or resident bathrooms
  • Be screened at Reception prior to proceeding into the community
  • Be screened for COVID-19 symptoms including temperature
    • Those with symptoms or a temperature over 100 degrees Fahrenheit will not be allowed entry to the community
  • Have bottoms of shoes disinfected (each shoe sprayed for 5 seconds)
  • Wear a mask at all times while in the community, including inside resident apartments
    • Visitors caught inside the community not wearing a mask (including in resident apartments) will be banned from visiting the community until January 1, 2021 when communicable disease status will be reassessed – no exceptions will be made!!
    • Remain at least 6 feet from residents at all times during the visit
  • Go directly from Reception to the resident’s apartment
  • May not be in the common spaces of the community, including hallways, except when going to / from resident apartment
  • Visiting hours are limited to: 10 a.m. to noon AND 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Monday – Sunday)
    • Limited hours are to protect staff from visitor exposure when passing medications or providing cares. Staff will not enter apartments during these hours unless medically necessary or requested by the resident.
    • No visitation is allowed on Housekeeping/Shower/Laundry day to allow staff to clean apartment, strip and re-make bed(s) and complete laundry without exposure to outside visitors.
    • Only two visitors permitted inside of resident’s apartment to ensure safe social distancing

Closed to Visitation: bans all visitors (including therapists) except the following:

  • Hospice: Visits will be conducted via Zoom unless resident is actively passing in which case, Hospice RN must don full PPE (Hospice provides) at the entrance of the community, be screened for symptoms/temp, etc. May not use public restrooms or resident bathrooms other than to wash hands and use single use toweling.
  • Home Health Providers: May enter for life safety (catheter change / wound care) reasons after complying with all bullet statements under “Open to Visitation” above.
  • Visiting Physicians: Must comply with all bullet statements under “Open to Visitation” above.

Resident safety is our first priority and we are doing everything we can to keep COVID-19 out of the communities. We are staying in close communication with local and state health officials and are actively disinfecting all surfaces several times per day. Staff are screened at the start of each shift and those with a temperature equal to or greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, or with 2 or more symptoms, are not allowed into the community. Staff are paid while sick or waiting for test results. This encourages our staff to tell us if they are unwell and to stay home.

If there is an active or suspected case in a community, we will screen residents daily for symptoms, stop all activities and communal dining (in non-dementia units) and we will ask residents to remain in their rooms at all times. Meals will be delivered to resident rooms at no charge.

We understand you are concerned about your loved one, but we must restrict visitation to reduce the spread of the virus. Staying connected with your loved one is important, so we encourage you to call, text and video chat. Our dedicated staff can assist with this.
Some of you may have questions regarding COVID-19. Please email the Community Director with questions and they will respond to you as soon as possible. We ask that you not leave phone messages.

Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times. Take care and be safe!!
Sincerely,
BAKA Management Team

Dear Residents, Family and Friends of BAKA Communities:

Our amazing caregivers and management teams have worked hard to keep the COVID-19 virus out of our BAKA Communities. Unfortunately, rising numbers in Wisconsin have everyone scared and worried. For this reason, we will post a weekly update every Wednesday on our Facebook Pages and the BAKA website. We will also post the weekly update at the front entrances of our communities. (See the last page of this update to view the visitation status of each community).

The next update will be posted to our Facebook Pages and the BAKA website on Wednesday, August 19, 2020.

Open to Visitation: requires all visitors to comply with the following:

  • Come directly from home wearing freshly laundered clothing
  • Empty bladder/bowel prior to visiting – visitors MAY NOT use public bathrooms or resident bathrooms
  • Be screened at Reception prior to proceeding into the community
  • Be screened for COVID-19 symptoms including temperature
    • Those with symptoms or a temperature over 100 degrees Fahrenheit will not be allowed entry to the community
  • Have bottoms of shoes disinfected (each shoe sprayed for 5 seconds)
  • Wear a mask at all times while in the community, including inside resident apartments
    • Visitors caught inside the community not wearing a mask (including in resident apartments) will be banned from visiting the community until January 1, 2021 when communicable disease status will be reassessed – no exceptions will be made!!
    • Remain at least 6 feet from residents at all times during the visit
  •  Go directly from Reception to the resident’s apartment
  • May not be in the common spaces of the community, including hallways, except when going to / from resident apartment
  • Visiting hours are limited to: 10 a.m. to noon AND 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Monday – Sunday)
    • Limited hours are to protect staff from visitor exposure when passing medications or providing cares. Staff will not enter apartments during these hours unless medically necessary or requested by the resident.
    • No visitation is allowed on Housekeeping/Shower/Laundry day to allow staff to clean apartment, strip and re-make bed(s) and complete laundry without exposure to outside visitors.
    • Only two visitors permitted inside of resident’s apartment to ensure safe social distancing

Closed to Visitation: bans all visitors (including therapists) except the following:

  • Hospice: Visits will be conducted via Zoom unless resident is actively passing in which case, Hospice RN must don full PPE (Hospice provides) at the entrance of the community, be screened for symptoms/temp, etc. May not use public restrooms or resident bathrooms other than to wash hands and use single use toweling.
  • Home Health Providers: May enter for life safety (catheter change / wound care) reasons after complying with all bullet statements under “Open to Visitation” above.
  • Visiting Physicians: Must comply with all bullet statements under “Open to Visitation” above.

Resident safety is our first priority and we are doing everything we can to keep COVID-19 out of the communities. We are staying in close communication with local and state health officials and are actively disinfecting all surfaces several times per day. Staff are screened at the start of each shift and those with a temperature equal to or greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, or with 2 or more symptoms, are not allowed into the community. Staff are paid while sick or waiting for test results. This encourages our staff to tell us if they are unwell and to stay home.

If there is an active or suspected case in a community, we will screen residents daily for symptoms, stop all activities and communal dining (in non-dementia units) and we will ask residents to remain in their rooms at all times. Meals will be delivered to resident rooms at no charge.

We understand you are concerned about your loved one, but we must restrict visitation to reduce the spread of the virus. Staying connected with your loved one is important, so we encourage you to call, text and video chat. Our dedicated staff can assist with this.

Some of you may have questions regarding COVID-19. Please email the Community Director with questions and they will respond to you as soon as possible. We ask that you not leave phone messages.

Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times. Take care and be safe!!

Sincerely,
BAKA Management Team

  • Hospice: Visits will be conducted via Zoom unless resident is actively passing in which case, Hospice RN must don full PPE (Hospice provides) at the entrance of the community, be screened for symptoms/temp, etc.  May not use public restrooms or resident bathrooms other than to wash hands and use single use toweling.
  • Home Health Providers: May enter for life safety (catheter change / wound care) reasons after complying with all bullet statements under “Open to Visitation” above.
  • Visiting Physicians: Must comply with all bullet statements under “Open to Visitation” above.

Resident safety is our first priority and we are doing everything we can to keep COVID-19 out of the communities.  We are staying in close communication with local and state health officials and are actively disinfecting all surfaces several times per day.  Staff are screened at the start of each shift and those with a temperature equal to or greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, or with 2 or more symptoms, are not allowed into the community.  Staff are paid while sick or waiting for test results.  This encourages our staff to tell us if they are unwell and to stay home.

If there is an active or suspected case in a community, we will screen residents daily for symptoms, stop all activities and communal dining (in non-dementia units) and we will ask residents to remain in their rooms at all times.  Meals will be delivered to resident rooms at no charge.

We understand you are concerned about your loved one, but we must restrict visitation to reduce the spread of the virus. Staying connected with your loved one is important so we encourage you to call, text and video chat.   Our dedicated staff can assist with this.

Some of you may have questions regarding COVID-19.  Please email the Community Director with questions and they will respond to you as soon as possible.  We ask that you not leave phone messages.

Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times.  Take care and be safe!!

Sincerely,

BAKA Management Team

Dr. Dave Price of Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City shares CRUCIAL information on how we can stop the spread and get back to normal, well, kinda normal. His experience with the virus and people infected for the last 3 months has given him great confidence on how not to get infected. Rules to protect yourself and family. It's a must watch!

3/19/2020:

As you are aware, Personal Protective Equipment is extremely difficult to find. Most supplies are being alotted to hospitals (where they need to be); however, as healthcare providers with a high risk population, we are finding ourselves unable to locate PPE through our normal vendors and other providers. The Strategic National Supply has been opened, but unfortunately, assisted livings will receive minimal PPE from this release.

Therefore, we are seeking donations of the following items:

  • N95 respirators or other masks used in construction or by painters, automotive personnel, etc.
  • Isolation Masks (Surgical Masks)
  • Isolation Gowns ( as well as disposable painters coveralls with hoods or reusable rainsuits with hoods)
  • Shoe Covers (these can be painters, plumbers, etc. shoe covers)

We would like to thank all those in the community for your understanding and assistance during the unprecedented time.

Sincerely,

Barbara A. Bittner,
Chief Operating Officer
BAKA Enterprises, Inc."

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread throughout the world and begins to impact our surrounding communities, we want to assure you that BAKA Enterprises is taking all the necessary precautions to ensure the safety and well being of the residents and staff in all of our communities.   Even though COVID-19 can infect anyone of any age, it is especially dangerous for those with living with a compromised immune system, as well as our elderly population.  For these reasons we are taking special precautions with all visitors and residents in the upcoming weeks.

We are committed to protecting the health of our residents and staff, which is why our team has been working tirelessly to review, discuss and implement suggestions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The World Health Organization (WHO), Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WisDHS), and The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

As we continue to protect our communities from potential exposure to COVID-19, we are implementing the following  - effective immediately:

    • Restrict community entrance to only:
      • Medically necessary personnel
      • Facility staff
      • Those entering to assist with end of life care
      • Implement a Facility Staff / Visitor Questionnaire
    • Restrict resident non-medically necessary outings until further notice:
      • No resident outings, unless medically necessary
      • If resident leaves for a non-medically necessary outing, re-entry to the community may be refused.
      • Review and print “Resident Acknowledgement of No Outings” for additional details.
    • Pandemic Plan
      • Plan consists of four phases
      • Developed based on recommendations from the CDC, WHO, and WisDHS
      • Review and print “Pandemic Plan” for additional information
      • All BAKA communities are currently in Phase 1: Precautionary Measures (No active cases)
    • Volunteer Recruitment
      • We must be prepared for potential staff shortages should COVID-19 reach the Pandemic Phase in a community
      • Seeking Lead Volunteer to coordinate all volunteers
      • Seeking volunteers ages 16 or older to assist in daily, non-medical community tasks should we experience a staff shortage due to COVID-19
      • Review and print “Volunteer Recruitment Form” for additional information.

We truly appreciate your understanding and cooperation, as we work together to ensure the safety of everyone residing or working in one of our communities.  We will let you know when these precautionary measures are no longer necessary.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact us directly at [email protected]

Helpful ways to protect you and your family

Stay safe and prepared with these simple tips

      • Wash your hands with soap often and for at least 20 seconds
      • Avoid heavily public areas and touching eyes, nose, and mouth
      • Stay at home even if you develop mild symptoms like a headache or slightly runny nose until you recover
      • If you develop a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, call ahead to your local MD or Clinic, make them aware of your symptoms and request guidance.

Dear Residents and Family Members:

The Coronavirus (COV-19 Virus) is now active in the U.S., including cases in Wisconsin.  Coronavirus is similar to other communicable diseases such as Influenza and Norovirus in the way it is spread and in the way we can slow or prevent the spread.

To protect the residents and staff in our community, we are requiring all visitors and employees adhere to the following precautionary measures:

      1. COVER your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Immediately discard the tissue in a trash receptacle.
      2. WASH your hands with soap and water for a minimum of twenty seconds. Especially after you cough or sneeze.
        1. CDC also recommends frequent use of hand sanitizer (keep it in your vehicle, at work, home).
      3. AVOID contact with ill people.
      4. STAY HOME if you feel sick or are experiencing symptoms provided on the enclosed checklist. This reduces the spread of the virus to others.
      5. DO NOT TOUCH your eyes, nose, mouth or face unless you wash your hands immediately after.
      6. NOTIFY our community immediately if you have visited within 14 days and develop symptoms (see checklist) or are diagnosed with Coronavirus.
      7. DO NOT VISIT the community if you feel ill, have a fever, are coughing, sneezing, short of breath, feel extreme fatigue, or have experienced diarrhea and/or vomiting.

In case you become ill, the Department of Health Services advises everyone to prepare for home isolation by purchasing enough supplies for 14 days including food, water, comfort medications, etc.
