Our Response to COVID-19

This is where you can find the latest information relating to our response to COVID-19.  This is an ever changing situation and we are monitoring developments daily.  We are following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and public health officials and our decisions are based on their guidance combined with the expertise of our teams. 

Daily life has been transformed for everyone as a result of COVID-19. This crisis has made it necessary to look out for those who are closest to us. As a family-owned and operated company, we consider each of our residents as part of our family. To us, family means never withholding information, and even over-communicating whenever possible. It means always leaving our door open for questions, or just a voice of comfort. We believe it’s never been more important for seniors to love the communities they call home, and we’re committed to doing everything possible to achieve just that.

Our Protocols

Since the beginning of the pandemic, our teams have been focused on limiting the spread of the virus at our communities and to date 98% of our residents have remained COVID-19 free.  

Protecting the health of our communities is a responsibility our dedicated teams don't take lightly. We’re putting our extensive experience (decades, for most members of our team) to work right now as we strive to keep residents comfortable and secure. We’re continuously adapting our protocols to stay ahead of the virus, and the team is committing to strict codes of conduct inside and outside of work. It’s a constant effort to do whatever is necessary for our residents’ health and peace of mind.
