Our Commitment To Safety
Keeping your loved ones safe during COVID-19
Our safety program is grounded on three pillars: precautions, testing, and vaccinations.
Staff and residents continue to wear masks during times of high community transmission and facility outbreak.
We continue to test residents and staff, as needed, based on recommendations from MDH and CDC.
We encourage all staff and residents within our communities to get vaccinated and remain up to date. Opportunities for vaccination on-site are provided routinely.
"The staff has gone above and beyond keeping my mom safe during this unprecedented time."

Each residence’s executive director regularly updates residents and their families. Residents receive print copies.
