A global crisis like today’s pandemic presents a scary situation for seniors. Everyone you go you risk finding the virus whether it be the grocery store or package carriers. At retirement homes, like Sarasota Bay Club, we’ve worked hard to ensure a safe and healthy environment can be given to all our residents and to make our community the safest place to be.

The Benefits of Living in a Retirement Home During a Pandemic
Not only do we offer a wonderful retirement lifestyle, we believe we have multiple benefits to combating a pandemic. We're happy to share these benefits to help other retirees realize it's so much more than having fun. It's the excellent care we offer at Sarasota Bay Club.
Controlling Your Environment
The number one benefit a retirement community offers its residents during times like these is the ability to control everything within their environment. You have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that each and every guest and visitor has been checked and cleared and all the staff is consistently tested before coming to work.
Up to Date Information
From the moment we knew of the dangers of this quickly spreading virus, the urgency of educating our staff, residents, and visitors became a top priority. The immediate communication to everyone involved is key to keeping every person aware of the seriousness a pandemic can bring.
Retirement communities have been on the forefront of the most up-to-date information and guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone who visits.
Food Delivery Services Help in Social Distancing
We make sure every resident gets their meals. From quick "grab and go" continental breakfasts to lunch and dinner deliveries, resident club members do not need to worry. The logistics are our responsibility so you don’t have to worry about going out to get food or groceries, just have them delivered right to your doorstep.
Transportation is Available and Disinfected
Although we may institute limited transportation, residents will have transportation to grocery, pharmacy, and financial institutions. When special needs arise, our Concierge Services is here to assist. A disinfecting process is set for all vehicles.
To keep our residents safe as possible, we take advantage of those grocery stores and pharmacies offering early access to seniors 65 and older. We provide transportation during these exclusive hours.
Residents Find Strength in Community
Just like other difficult times in life, relying on your friends and family around you helps ease the burden. Our residents have found strength in the community during these trying times. They’ve rallied around each other for safety, socialization, and friendship which has made getting through each day easier and safer for everyone.
