Family Information

We will be posting information here for families during the COVID-19 crisis.

 

Important Notice- July 3,2020

It saddens us deeply that yesterday, July 2, we were informed of a positive Covid-19 test of one of our staff members, and now  we must inform you that this morning we were received test results that a first floor Nursing Home resident, has tested positive for Covid-19.   We have other resident test results pending.  Families of residents who are on the same unit will be notified by phone sometime today.  All residents will be re-tested next week and all test will be tested next week.

We have isolated that resident and  full  infection control measures in place to hopefully contain any spread.  Our staff has been and continue to be committed to the safety and protection of our residents and each other.  We know that the risks for our country, like so many places in the whole country are increasing as people are moving around more in their social circles, shopping, going to restaurants, etc.  We re-emphasize the need to take personal precaution since so many people may carry the virus but not have any symptoms.    

I  ask you to pray for the protection of our staff, residents and yourself. 

God Bless you and Stay Safe!

"It's very hard to place a loved one in a nursing facility, but we had the utmost confidence she would be well cared for. All the staff treat the residents like they were their own family."
