Fairmount is currently offering visitation in our Health Care center only. Wheat Ridge Personal Care and Farm Crest Personal Care have suspended visitation and both were required to revert to pre-reopening stage. The Personal Care areas can reenter the opening stage when two weeks have elapsed with no new positive COVID-19 cases. Visits must be scheduled in advance and are limited to one visit per resident per week to ensure all residents have an opportunity to visit their loved ones.

At the heart of Fairmount’s mission is to enrich the lives of those we serve. As we are in the midst of an unprecedented season, where viruses such as Influenza and COVID-19 (Coronavirus) can radically spread out of control and grow exponentially, Fairmount is actively taking vigilant measures to keep our residents and team members healthy and safe.
Some of these preemptive actions may be uncomfortable in the short term, but we pray, will fully protect us from having any virus enter our halls. Our leadership team continues to meet daily to assess the situation, monitor the outside state of affairs that affect our community, and implement strategies that will keep our residents and team safe.
Please visit our website regularly to stay up-to-date on recent changes, cancellations, and additional efforts to promote safety at Fairmount.

Update March 16, 2020 | 3:30 pm
Fairmount is taking precautions, in keeping with Centers for Disease Control and the Department of Health guidelines regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), to keep residents and team members as safe as possible. Therefore, until further notice, beginning on March 17 at 7:00 a.m., Fairmount is no longer permitting visitors into our Residential Living level of care. Residential Living includes the apartments and common areas of the Wheat Ridge Apartment Building, Crest View Apartment Building, Farm Crest Apartments and all of our cottages. This means family members will not be allowed on campus, although end-of-life situations will be addressed individually. All approved visitors will be screened for respiratory signs or symptoms and temperature screenings upon entry.
If you have personal items that you’d like to drop off for your family member or loved one, please do so in the apartment building lobbies or cottage doorway. We are encouraging visitors to not enter our buildings.
Fairmount team members, vendors and contractors will be screened for symptoms and temperatures upon entering our buildings, as well.
