Keeping residents, resident families and staff members safe is our number one priority. We are actively monitoring the outbreak of the coronavirus (termed “COVID-19”), as well as its continued impact locally and nationally.   will communicate any changes and updates as they become available. We understand that this is a very challenging time for all and we are committed to the care and wellness of all those who live, work and visit our communities.  

Below are some of the precautions we have implemented and will continue to have in place until further notice:

·         Following and adhering to the relevant CDC and local and state Department of Health guidelines & Implementing stringent infection control policies

·         Prohibiting non-essential visitors inside the community.

·         Conducting communal dining  with social distancing for residents.
