INTRODUCTION

Whether you have just moved to Butterfield Trail Village or have been here for some time, we are glad you have chosen BTV to be your home and we are confident that you will find our community to be a rewarding place to live. This handbook has been developed to serve as a quick reference to your residency at the Village. The BTV Resident Handbook was developed to define and clarify general items and services for BTV Residents. It is our intention to cover as many questions or concerns affecting life at the Village as possible. However, addressing every situation that may arise is impossible. Additionally, circumstances and changes may dictate the need for the CEO or designee to interpret this handbook and any other item contained therein to set policy not yet defined. This handbook will be reviewed and amended from time to time at the sole discretion of BTV to reflect the needs and changes of the Village. If you have any questions about any item contained in this handbook, please contact the Senior Director of Resident Services or the CEO.

Thermostats should be set to 60 degrees in the winter and 80 degrees in the summer. • A meal credit may be given to a Resident who is absent for seven or more consecutive days. See “Meal Adjustments” under Dining Services for more information. Adherence to Policies • Butterfield Trail Village expects every Resident to abide by the policies and procedures of BTV as set forth in the Residence Agreement, the Resident Handbook and any subsequent amendments to those documents. • These policies provide for the orderly operation and management of the Village and for the comfort, safety and security of all Residents and Employees.

The cost of repairing any damage to BTV property is the sole responsibility of the Resident. • Users of motorized devices should drive in the center of the halls to allow other Residents to safely enter hallways/commons areas. • Extra caution should be used while entering and exiting the elevators in a motorized device. • Outside use of motorized devices should be restricted to sidewalks and pavement. • Motorized devices must not exceed the speed of pedestrians and drivers must yield the right of way to pedestrians. Complaints of excessive speed or recklessness may result in prohibitive use or in a governor being placed on the motorized device, at the sole expense of the Resident. • Fire code prohibits motorized devices, walkers and canes being left in the residential halls or the main entrance at any time. When leaving the Village through the main entrance for a short period of time, the ambulatory device may be left in the Cart Room. If necessary, and if BTV personnel are available, Staff will valet park the device for the Resident. • Residents with ambulatory devices should use the north side (Dining Room side) of the buffet line, or the Resident may be seated and request table service. • Fire code mandates that all ambulatory devices not used as seating at a dining table must be stored elsewhere in order to provide a clear egress from the Dining Room. The assistive device will be stored by Dining Room Staff, and will be returned to the Resident at the completion of the meal. • Residents with mobility limitations may enter the Dining Room fifteen minutes prior to serving times to receive additional assistance from Staff. • BTV reserves the right to deny any Resident the privilege of operating a motorized device on the BTV campus if it is determined by Administration that the Resident is not using the device in a safe manner or is not complying with the requirements set forth in this handbook. 01.01.2019


5 Animals, Birds and Wildlife • BTV has a no-pet policy; however, the Village does comply with all federal laws regarding therapy animals, emotional support animals and service animals. • Feeding wildlife or feral animals is not permitted. • Birdfeeders are allowed outside the Cottages, Village Homes, Assisted Living, Health Care Center and Special Care Center. Birdfeeders may only be placed in grass areas and not within six feet from the bed edging. Only non-seed feeders are allowed outside Apartments. Any unapproved feeders placed in commons areas will be removed. Automobile Registration and Parking • All Resident vehicles must be registered with BTV’s Facilities Department. A BTV Resident parking sticker will be issued and must be placed on the inner left side of the front windshield. • An RFID sticker will also be issued for placement on the vehicle windshield below the parking sticker. The RFID sticker will trigger the main gate to open when entering the campus after the gate has been closed at 10:00 p.m. • One vehicle per Resident is allowed on the campus. For short-term additional vehicle parking, contact the Director of Facility Services for overflow parking information. • Handicapped parking is provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and is available throughout BTV. • Covered parking for Apartment Residents is limited and will be assigned on a wait-list basis by the BTV Facilities Department.

6 Balconies and Patios • Every BTV independent-living home has a balcony or patio. These areas are for the personal use of Residents and should be maintained in a manner that is appropriate to BTV, and that is pleasant for others to view. • These areas should be kept neat and clutter-free, and should never be used for storage. • If a patio is not easily accessible due to Resident furniture or other items, Horticulture Staff will be unable to use the leaf blower to clean the area. • Exterior decoration should be seasonally appropriate and in good condition. BTV reserves the right to request any item(s) be removed from a balcony or patio. Bicycles • Outside bicycle storage is provided for BTV Apartment Residents by contacting the Facilities Coordinator. BTV Resident Association and Resident Council • All BTV Residents are members of the BTV Resident Association. The purpose of the Association is to provide communication among Residents, the Administration and the Board of Directors. Resident Association officers and area representatives are elected annually by the Residents. The BTVRA also has a representative on the BTV Board of Directors. • Area meetings are held monthly to discuss various issues, changes and policies. Area representatives then present residents' concerns at the monthly Resident Council meeting. The Resident Council meets with the BTV Board of Directors quarterly. • All Residents are encouraged to attend the monthly Resident Forum where the Resident Council will share reports and actions of the previous month.

Bulletin boards located in the commons area near the Dining Room have daily updated announcements and information on activities, as well as information about the BTV Board of Directors, Foundation Board of Directors and Leadership Staff. The Information Center, located on the wall across from the bulletin boards, contains current Dining Room menus, Transportation schedules, lecture series notes and other pertinent information. The Resident Directory is updated periodically and made available to Residents at the Front Desk. The directory lists Residents both alphabetically and numerically by Apartment, Cottage or Village Home number. Resident phone numbers, Resident email addresses, Resident Association information and committee assignments are provided. Staff phone numbers and email addresses, as well as departmental information, are listed. The Cox TV channel directory, a Transportation schedule and recycling information are also included within this directory. Old Resident Directories should be shredded. A daily activities listing is provided on the BTV in-house TV channel. Administration shares pertinent information at the monthly Town Meeting, which can also be viewed on BTV Channel 1961. The current Dining Room menu, the monthly Butterfield LIFE Calendar of Events and current Butterfield LIFE magazine can also be found at www.butterfieldtrailvillage.org.

Have a current inoculation for influenza or a waiver from the Arkansas State Department of Health (during flu season); Update background checks, health cards and inoculations annually; Wear an identification badge at all times; Have a BTV parking sticker affixed to his/her vehicle windshield; Park in areas designated for Employees – not in Resident parking areas, including covered parking; Sign in and sign out at the Front Desk or in AL/HCC/SCC at every visit; and Abide by the policies and procedures of BTV as set forth in the Care Companion Handbook and any subsequent amendments to that document.

Confidentiality • Butterfield Trail Village is committed to maintaining the privacy of all Resident information and adheres to the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for safeguarding each Resident’s protected health information. • It is BTV's policy that all information considered confidential will not be disclosed to external parties or to Employees without a “need to know.” • To this end, Butterfield Trail Village requires all Employees (as well as privatelypaid companions) to sign a confidentiality agreement as a condition of employment due to the possible knowledge of information that is confidential or intended for organizational use only. • As a result, Employees are limited in sharing information about Residents. Residents are asked to be respectful of the restriction placed on Employees. Death of a Resident / Memorial Services • BTV pays respects to every deceased Resident at the time of passing by posting the Resident's picture and service information. This will remain posted until after the service has taken place. • BTV provides transportation to local funerals when scheduling permits. Transportation is not provided to graveside services or visitation services. • The Programs and Events Department will assist families with memorial services held at BTV. Deliveries • Delivery personnel must report first to the Front Desk. The Receptionist will call Residents for permission to deliver large items to the home. • Flowers and smaller items may be left at the Front Desk for pick-up. As time allows, Staff will deliver packages to Residents needing assistance. 01.01.2019


9 Dress and Attire • BTV Residents should be dressed and in appropriate attire when outside of their homes or when Staff is working in their homes. • Night clothes (gowns, pajamas, robes, etc.) should not be worn in commons areas, including halls. • Bathing suit cover-ups and robes, with a minimum of knee length, are permissible going to and from the Aquatic Center. Driving • Residents are required to adhere to the posted 12 m. p. h. speed limit throughout the BTV campus. • Residents must always yield to pedestrian traffic. Elevators • In the event of a power outage, the North and South Lobby elevators will operate, but the elevators on the corners of the Apartment wings will not. • If the fire alarm is activated, do not use the elevator. The elevators will go to the first floor and remain there with the doors open - unless the alarm is on the first floor. In that situation, the elevators will go to the second floor, where they will remain with the doors open. • The elevator shafts for the elevators on the Apartment wing corners have smoke doors that will close in the event of a fire alarm. • In the event that the person in the elevator is physically unable to open the smoke door to exit the elevator, the person should use the phone in the elevator to call for help. • If trapped in an elevator in a non-fire event, the passenger should immediately depress the white alarm button that is located to the right of the “bell” emblem, and below the buttons for Floors 1, 2 and 3. This will activate the bell ring, which will notify those in the vicinity of the problem. • There will always be adequate airflow in the elevators. Emergency and Non-emergency Medical Transportation • BTV does not provide emergency transportation to the Emergency Room. • In the event of a medical emergency, BTV Nursing Staff will arrange transportation with Central Emergency Medical Services (CEMS) to a hospital. • Non-emergency situations in need of transportation to the Emergency Room may be handled by use of personal transportation. If that is not available, Nursing Staff will contact a non-emergency medical service. • Paramedic Ambulance Membership Plan (PAMP) is offered by CEMS to offset the cost of emergency transportation by an ambulance for Residents who do not 01.01.2019

have a secondary insurance or in the event of denial of payment by Medicare. Membership applies to emergency ambulance transportation only. Applications and information are located at the Information Center. Questions may be directed to the Senior Director of Resident Services. Residents or applicable insurance will be responsible for the cost of all emergency or non-emergency transportation.

Emergency Pendants and Pull Cords • Each BTV Resident is issued one emergency pendant to be used on the BTV campus. Pushing the pendant alerts Nursing Staff and/or Security of the Resident’s name and general location so that they can respond promptly to provide assistance. Lost pendants may be replaced at the Resident’s expense. • Pull cords are located in each residence and in all public bathrooms throughout BTV. Pulling the cord will alert Nursing Staff at all times. • If leaving the Village for more than 24 hours, the pendant should be left in the home. This avoids setting off an additional alarm. Financial Assistance • BTV will not terminate a Residence Agreement based solely on a Resident's inability to pay the Monthly Service Fee due to circumstances beyond the control of the Resident, and that are not the result of the intentional conduct of the Resident. • If the need for assistance arises, the Resident should present supporting documentation to the Senior Director of Resident Services. The Village Administration will determine if the facts justify a partial or whole subsidy to the Resident's expenses. All determinations made by BTV shall be confidential between the Village, the Resident and any necessary regulatory bodies. • If a Resident is approved for financial assistance, the Resident may be asked to move to a smaller living unit. The cost of the move will be the sole responsibility of the Resident. Fire Safety • The Main Building and Village Homes are protected by smoke detectors, heat sensors and automatic sprinkler systems. Cottages have smoke detectors and heat sensors, but do not have sprinklers. • The smoke alarm in each Apartment, Cottage or Village Home is connected to the emergency alert system to notify the proper BTV staff and/or emergency personnel. • Smoke detectors will sound an alarm if smoke and/or fumes are sensed. If the fire alarm is activated, elevators are automatically out of order. If an evacuation is 01.01.2019


11 required, the stairs must be used. Evacuation chairs will be used to assist those unable to use the stairs. If the fire is in your Apartment: • Leave the home immediately and close the door, leaving it unlocked. • There are at least two red fire-alarm stations located in each section of the hallways: one by the stairwell door and one located near the middle of that section of hallway. Go to the box nearest the Apartment and pull the handle to activate it. This will alert Staff and the Fayetteville Fire Department. • BTV Staff will respond immediately, followed by the Fire Department. • Wait by the pull box, if safe, until Staff arrive. • Inform Staff of the location of the fire. If the fire is elsewhere in the Main Building, but not in your Apartment: • Remain in the Apartment with the door shut until notified by BTV Staff or the Fire Department to evacuate. • BTV will issue an all-clear notice over Staff radios when it is safe to leave the Apartments. • If the fire alarm sounds while you are in the Main Building, but outside of your personal residence, seek a safe area or exit the building. • In any fire emergency, each Resident should take steps to ensure his/her own safety, as well as the safety of others. If the fire is in a Cottage or Village Home: • Leave the home immediately and close the door, leaving it unlocked. • Notify adjoining Cottage or Village Home neighbor(s). • Use a cell phone to call 911 and/or push the emergency pendant to notify BTV Staff. Fire drills are not conducted in Independent Living, but are conducted on a regular basis in Assisted Living, the Health Care Center and the Special Care Center. Firearms and Concealed Weapons • BTV discourages Residents from housing firearms in their homes. However, if the Resident(s) wishes to have a firearm in the home, it must be registered with BTV at the time of move-in or at the time it is brought into the residence. • All firearms should be kept in a safe, preferably locked, area in the home. • Firearms should not be visible in the home. • BTV is not an open-carry campus and firearms are not allowed in the commons areas. 01.01.2019


12 BTV reserves the right to request the weapon(s) be removed at any time from the campus, or services to the Resident could be restricted. Front Desk/Receptionist A Receptionist is on duty at the Front Desk from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily to assist in resolving problems and providing information. The services provided by the Receptionist include: • Keeping the sign-out registry of Residents absent from BTV; • Announcing the arrival of guests; • Overseeing guest check-in and providing guest badges; • Handling emergency calls; • Completing work orders; • Notifying Residents of packages or other deliveries; • Handling mail and faxes; • Making copies; • Selling guest meal tickets; • Maintaining a lost-and-found box; and • Cashing checks. Front Door Decoration • Wreaths, pictures, plaques and other items hung from a front door should be seasonally appropriate, in good taste and in good repair. • Nothing on display should cause damage to the door, protrude beyond six inches from the door or have a motion sensor that causes noise. • No decorations may be hung on hallway walls. • No nails, pins, tape or other adhesives should be used on doors or paper holders. • For Apartment doors, decorations must be hung on the provided hanger. • Decorations for the mail holder must be attached with a clip. • BTV reserves the right to request any item be removed from an exterior door. Golf Carts Any Resident utilizing a golf cart on the BTV campus must: • Have a BTV parking sticker on the cart; • Follow the posted speed limit; • Yield to pedestrians; and • Park in parking spaces, and not the grass or sidewalk.
