COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information


As the coronavirus continues to spread, health care professionals across our country and around the world continue to work on the front lines of the fight.  Please pray for all doctors, nurses, and other essential personnel as they continue to care for those most vulnerable, and for the health and safety of patients, residents, and anyone affected by Covid-19.


We appreciate your support and prayers during this unprecendented time.  We want to assure you that our number one priority is to keep our residents and our healthcare team protected from this highly contagious virus. This requires our continued strong protective measures that greatly reduce the potential of infection. We continue to restrict visitors pursuant with local health department directives.  It is crucial that we restrict visitation to reduce the spread of this virus. Family members and friends of residents are encouraged to utilize video chat, calling, texting, or other social media formats to stay in touch during this period. We appreciate your patience with these restrictions. We are doing everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19 from entering our facility, including staying in very close communication with local and state health officials to do all the precautionary steps we can.  Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other websites linked below to learn more about the ways in which you can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community. We know this is a difficult time for everyone and we appreciate your assistance in protecting our residents.
