Clarendale at Bellevue Place Hosts first Covid-19 Vaccine Clinic

By COVID-19

On 1/20/2021, the first residents at Clarendale at Bellevue Place participated in the first of three Covid-19 Vaccine clinics held on-site at the community. Through a partnership with Moderna, our residents and staff received priority access to the vaccine, leading a strong step forward for our seniors and team members to continue to focus on resident safety during the pandemic.

In December, as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines received emergency approval for distribution, Clarendale at Bellevue Place partnered closely with our management company, Life Care Services® to prepare for on-site clinic opportunities in which residents and staff can receive both doses of the critical vaccine. This clinic marks the first of the three opportunities to receive doses of the vaccine.

Future clinic dates will align with the necessary dose timing, as indicated by the vaccine manufacturer. We are proud to provide priority access to our residents and look forward to sharing future updates with residents and families on all anticipated clinic dates as they become available.

Call us today to learn how you or a loved one can receive priority access as a resident at Clarendale at Bellevue Place prior to our second clinic date in mid-February!

The Dangers of Seniors Living Alone

By Senior Living Options

Independence, freedom and self-reliance are woven into the fabric of American culture. There are scores of movies, books and songs about the loner who relies on their wits and skills. As teenagers, most of us couldn’t wait to be out of the house, making our own decisions. But as we grow older, what was thrilling in our teens and adulthood can start to become dangerous and risky.

The truth is, as much as we value our freedom, humans are highly social, and even the most introverted of us need some form of human interaction. And while we might like to think of ourselves as self-reliant, we need others for our physical, emotional and psychological well-being. As we age, our circle of friends can start to dwindle, and it can become difficult to make new ones.
