As per Florida SB 988: No Resident / Patient Left Alone Act (04/06/22)
Gold Choice complies with all regulatory guidelines and will follow the regulatory guidelines listed here.
No health care facility in Florida may require a vaccine as a condition to visitation and must allow for consensual physical contact between patients and their loved ones.
Visitation definition and procedures may be altered or changed based on local and state health department mandates.
Gold Choice Senior Living permits IN-PERSON VISITATION. As well as visitation in all the following circumstances, unless the resident, client, or patient objects.
Gold Choice recognizes that family and human connection is one of the most important aspects of physical, mental, and emotional well-being. We are committed to making sure that residents/patients are never again denied the right to see their relatives and friends. Gold Choice recommends families limit the number of visitors to 3 and overnight stays to less than 72 hours. We require a designation of a person responsible for staff adherence to the visitation policies and procedures. We also ask family members and or friends to NOT VISIT if they are SICK as this could be a risk to their loved one. Although we have this recommendation, we would not stop family from visiting.
