Update May 21, 2020

Greetings! We continue to follow all of our implemented precautions. We also encourage residents to only leave the facility for medically necessary appointments. Additionally, residents are encouraged to wear a mask when outside of their apartment. Activities are conducted on a 1:1 basis and some “doorway” activities.

As businesses begin to open up and restrictions decreasing across the state, as a congregate living provider, we continue to follow the guidance of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). At this time MDH continues to recommend visitor restrictions for all congregate living and long term care providers. We look forward to the time we are able to welcome you back into our buildings, but until then, we are happy to arrange phone calls and/or video chats with you and your loved one. Please feel free to reach out to our communities directly to set up a phone call or video chat.

We hope you stay safe and healthy!
