Vibrant Life Senior Living Guidelines for Visiting Families and Guests

Updated and current as of July 14, 2020

Below are Vibrant Life Senior Living Guidelines for Visiting Families and Guests. These rules are based upon Emergency
Order MCL 333.2253 declared June 30, 2020 by Robert Gordon, Director of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Please click here to view the order.

These items have been determined primary from Item #4 in the Emergency Order. The letters of each item correspond with the letters of that Order.

Please note, that based on the Emergency Order described above, we, as a facility, have the right to determine visitation rules for our particular community, based upon guidelines set in the order. Our first priority is keeping residents, staff and families safe. We also understand and respect the importance of family visitation for the well-being of our residents, staff and families. Please work with us and respect our process, as we attempt to balance these two important issues. Please remember, that all visitation rights are granted by the Administrator of the senior community in conjunction with the Director of Resident Care Services. All visitation will be scheduled and be determined on an individual basis.
