COVID-19 Response and Resources
Our Berkmar office as well as all leasing offices are closed until further notice. Our staff is still available to serve you remotely. Our Housing Counseling team will continue to meet with clients remotely and community managers can be reached via phone and email as well.
What We’re Doin and How You Can Help
- Emergency Assistance Fund. The Emergency Assistance Fund (EAF) was established to help residents meet short-term needs caused by COVID-19. Members of all Piedmont Housing communities can request up to $200 from the fund by contacting Michael Monaco at email@example.com or 434-825-3132.
- S.O.S – Support Our Seniors. If you are looking for a way to impact the life of another individual during this difficult time, consider supporting our S.O.S. program by sending a few kind words to our 55+ community members. Your message will lift their spirits and help them remain optimistic during this challenging time.
- Piedmont Housing Resident Resource Guide. We’ve compiled a resource guide for neighbors at our communities. Download it here.
Precautions at our communities
In addition to the above precautions, the following are being taken at our communities.
- Visitor limitations. Residents at our senior living communities are encouraged to limit the number of visitors they welcome into their home until further notice.
- Entrances/Exits. For the foreseeable future, each senior living community will have one main point of entry and exit.
- Limited use of communal areas. Residents will limit gathering in communal areas such as the lobbies and community rooms of each community. All gyms/workout rooms, community center, libraries and other communal areas are temporarily closed. Laundry rooms remain open.
- Regular Check-ins. We will be conducting regular check-ins with residents at our senior living communities via phone.
- Heightened sanitizing and cleaning. Staff sanitizes our communities once a day and we have contracted a cleaner at many of our senior communities.
These resources will be updated frequently.
