Masks now required at all times when visiting our life plan communities!

Before entering, please note that our masking policy has changed, effective September 3, due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in our county and surrounding areas. The positivity rates throughout our service area are near or above 10%, causing great concern about the continued spread of the virus and its variants.

Out of an abundance of caution, we are now requiring all family members, vendors, contractors and other visitors to wear a face mask at all times, regardless of vaccination status, when in any of our personal care/assisted living residences and skilled care centers. This includes private visits in resident rooms and assisted living apartments.

We will continue to monitor the positivity rates and adjust our visitation policy once we feel it is safe to do so. Thank you for helping us stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
