At Revel Communities, the health and well-being of residents and team members is our top priority. During these challenging times, we have taken many precautions in addition to the normal policies and procedures to reduce the risk of the spread of viruses.
Residents report feeling safe and connected in their communities, even during quarantine, with less worry than if they were living on their own. “They realized how serious it was at the beginning,” says resident June Saylor, “and took measures to keep everyone safe.”
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Revel team members have created daily social engagement opportunities like outdoor concerts and virtual happy hours to offer residents things to look forward to, while still maintaining social distancing. Exercise classes were moved to video or outdoor spaces, allowing residents to stay active, while residents who enjoy solo activities like walking or biking have been able to continue their routines.
To keep residents safe from having to leave to shop for food, there are multiple contactless options at Revel. Made-from-scratch, fresh meals are available for delivery from our restaurants directly to our residents’ apartments and grocery delivery and onsite grocery shopping are also available.
Revel communities continue to provide high levels of personalized service for residents, even amid the pandemic. Our 24-hour concierge is always available to assist with transportation and any needs our residents have and we’ve maintained services like weekly housekeeping.
Despite missing loved ones, residents have been able to keep their spirits up. The sense of community is stronger than ever, they report, and many are very glad to be weathering the quarantine at Revel rather than alone in a home.
That spirit shone bright when we asked their advice for getting through tough times. “Just do it. You can’t change it so you might as well learn to live with it,” says Wilma Edwards.
And, as Joe Accanero says, “This will end.”
It will indeed end, and our Revel communities will be stronger than before.
