COVID-19 Update April 2021

Dear Residents, Family Members, and Employees,

As of today there are three (3) different COVID-19 Coronavirus Vaccines.  Our Nursing Home had three (3) Government sponsored COVID Vaccine Clinics.  Unfortunately those are done but the work continues on the vaccination front.  The vaccine is working at protecting residents and everyone at a greater loss of death and severe symptoms of this virus.  The graph below starts at 5/31/2020 and continues through 3/7/2021 and we can see the dramatically positive effect. 

We have advocated the State for several things regarding vaccines:

COVID-19 Update February/March 2021

Dear Residents, Family Members, and Employees,

COVID-19 Update October/November

Dear Residents, Family Members and & Staff,

All of us in the Midwest have had a slowing effect of the COVID virus over the last few months including our home.  Our lives had moved to what we have been calling “our new normal.” Across Illinois and Indiana we had seen a “settling down” if you will, in COVID cases in Nursing Homes.  Our facility has progressed through any outbreaks, if we had one, and all things considered we are back on track to moving closer and closer to again the new normal of our facility’s operations.
