We invite you to visit with your loved one by scheduling a video visit (online) or an outdoor tent visit (onsite). Please review our HELPFUL HINTS and GUIDELINES below, prior to scheduling your visit. This face-to-face opportunity will lift spirits and renew souls, we can’t wait to see you.
A video visit is an opportunity to visit with your loved one face-to-face, through a computer. Using Zoom, our preferred platform, you can visually connect from your computer, tablet or mobile device. Our Miravida Team Member will assist your loved one with a tablet to visually interact with you.
Zoom is our preferred platform to visually connect you to your loved one. This is a free service and our team will send you the meeting invite at the time of your scheduled call. This will link you into the system and works from your computer, tablet or mobile device. If you’d like to run a test meeting to ensure your device is ready, click here.
About 15 minutes before your meeting time, our Life Enrichment team member will send the Zoom link to your provided email. This will give you time to launch the meeting, and allow our team to prepare your loved one. You are not required to sign in or make an account. The link should take you directly into the meeting.
At the scheduled time, our Miravida Team Member will connect to the Zoom link which was sent to you shortly before. Please join that meeting link as well. Miravida Living will be using a tablet so your loved one may hold it close and interact well with you. Please be patient if we connect shortly after the scheduled time, our first priority will be to make sure your loved one is comfortable and ready.
Our Life Enrichment team member will work specifically with you to launch the meeting. Zoom can accommodate many participants and you are welcome to invite others to your call by sending on the link or sharing the meeting ID. Each meeting has a unique 9, 10, or 11-digit number called a meeting ID that will be required to manually join a Zoom meeting. If you choose to invite more family and friends, please be mindful that this sort of technology can become overwhelming when too many faces and voices are coming through. You know your loved one best and we trust you’ll make a the right decision for them, relative to how many additional participants to invite.
A tent visit is an opportunity to visit with your loved one face-to-face, through the safety of a clear, plastic tent. Miravida has prepared a visiting tent at each location with a seating area on the outside, and space for your loved one to comfortably sit on the inside, just behind the clear shield. Our team member will assist your loved one to the tent at the time of your scheduled visit and ensure you are all comfortable and able to communicate with one another.
In addition to counting down to the visit (we, too, are incredibly excited to see you exchange face-to-face smiles with your loved one), we want you to be prepared. To honor the number of visit requests, we will ask that you are respectful of your 30 minute timeline. You will need to be wearing masks as you approach the tent and therefore we ask that you make sure you have those in hand. Also, this visit is outside – so please dress accordingly. Unfortunately, we cannot allow visitors into our building, so please be sure to use the restroom before you arrive.
And we know the excitement of a tent visit makes it tempting to invite the neighborhood… however, our hope is that you pause and consider what is in the best interest of your loved one. Remember how overwhelming large conversations can be and try to consider more frequent visits with fewer people. For this reason and to follow the guidance of our professional partners, tent visits recommend a ratio of two visitors at a time per elder.
Please review the remaining information here and you should be prepared!
BETHEL HOME: The visiting tent will be located just off the front doors. Family and friends can park in the main parking lot which offers direct access to the tent. Please keep in mind, Eagle Street is currently under construction! Our Bethel parking lot connects (with a bit of winding) to the Simeanna Apartment parking lots, so feel free to enter from N. Westfield St. and work your way to the front of Bethel. Here’s a link that may be helpful.
EDEN MEADOWS: The visiting tent will be located on the Bistro Patio. Guests can park in the rehabilitation parking lot and proceed to the Bistro Patio.
ELIJAH’S PLACE: Guests can access the visiting tent out front and walk directly toward the front of the building. Family and friends may park in the adjacent parking lot to the west side of Elijah’s Place.
GABRIEL’S VILLA: The visiting tent will be located on the front patio just off the front entrance. Guests are invited to park in the main lot for visits.
Allowing these tent visits is a privilege that we don’t take lightly. It is important that all parties respect the guidelines so together, we can continue this opportunity while keeping our residents, our team and you safe. Please respect our non-negotiable guidelines throughout the duration of your visit:
Upon arrival, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire and take your temperature. If you have ANY of the symptoms listed below, an in-person visit will not be allowed. Here are the symptoms… if you find yourself feeling any of these, please stay home and reschedule your visit to a later date. And until you’re feeling better, consider scheduling a video visit!
If a building has had a positive staff or resident case in the last 28 days, tent visits will be postponed until we are 28 days with no positive cases. Each building is treated individually. If a building is NOT allowing tent visits, the option will be UNAVAILABLE in the schedule.
Our scheduling system now houses BOTH options for visits; Video (using Zoom) and In-Person Tent Visits (on-site). You can expect to see similar confirmations and reminders just as you had before. You will now be able to cancel or reschedule directly through your email reminder. Please be respectful of others and the capacity of our team by scheduling once a week. Enjoy the new features and ENJOY YOUR VISIT!
Reminder: To successfully schedule a visit, your selections of STAFF and the BUILDING WHERE YOUR LOVED ONE LIVES must match to ensure our team is available at your preferred time (selecting a staff appears optional or that you can choose anyone, but it is actually required). If you prefer not to schedule using this system, please feel free to call us at (920) 235-3454.
As this difficult season is upon us, we are encouraging you to be innovative in staying in touch. Consider sending a written (typed) message to your loved one through our website – don’t forget you can upload a photo too! We will be doing mail-calls daily and would love to delivery your message!
