(All residents who consented to receive the COVID vaccine have already received their 1st dose)

Miscellaneous information for family/friends of residents:

-End of Life visits are allowed, however, they are highly discouraged. If you decide to come for an end of life visit we will supply you with the required PPE.

-Window visits are allowed. Windows must be closed. Do not use a ladder, stepstool, etc. to access resident window.

-IPHONES are available on each unit. Staff will continue to assist residents with Facetime calls. 

-Family members still may not drop off items for residents. We need to reduce as much human to human contact as possible. Please utilize mail, UPS, FEDEX, etc. to have something delivered. Flower deliveries from florists are acceptable.
