Hello residents and families,

March just started and we are excited to welcome a new season with warmer weather and brighter days. It is one of our favorite times of the year.

This month, we will be celebrating the women in our community. Our residents are predominately women and we are proud to celebrate them along with our staff. 

We want to thank everyone who has elected to receive the COVID-19 vaccine! We know it was not an easy decision for many, but it is an important step to protecting yourself and the entire community. Please note that although we are all vaccinated, this does not mean more relaxed safety protocols. Our enhanced infection control protocols will remain in place until public health authorities advise us that they are no longer necessary. This means we continue to wear masks, practice social distancing, quarantine for new residents, and more.
