Enlivant and the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) announced that Enlivant has become the first senior living provider to earn the WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management for its entire portfolio of 215 senior living communities. The rating recognizes Enlivant's commitment to promoting a safer and healthier environment for its employees and residents.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all new and existing building and space types focusing on operational policies and maintenance protocols to address health and safety challenges during COVID-19 and beyond.
"We are proud to be the first senior living portfolio recognized for our ongoing commitment to providing healthy and safe environments where our employees and residents can thrive," said Dan Guill, Enlivant’s chief executive officer. "Due to our vaccination and safety programs, our communities are among the most protected against COVID-19 in assisted living and memory care, and we're thrilled to receive this validation of our leadership from IWBI."
Enlivant has implemented several programs and initiatives to promote healthier environments in their communities, including a vaccination program with nearly 95 percent of employees and residents vaccinated against COVID-19, enhanced cleaning and sanitization efforts, emergency preparedness programs, and health service resources to support the physical and mental well-being of their people.
