Update: Tuesday, January 26, 2021


Good afternoon Victorian Place of St. Clair Family:

We completed our whole house testing on 1/25/2021 and are happy to report today that all residents and employees tested negative for COVID-19.    

I wanted to share the good news.  We will lift our in-room quarantine on 1/27/2021 which represents 14 days from possible exposure and we are now allowing inside visits to be scheduled again. 

I am very proud of our team here at VP of St. Clair.  We lived our philosophy every day by putting our residents first. 

Thank you for your support, thoughts and prayers during these challenging times.  

Sincerely,

 

Kim Wilson

Update:  Friday, July 3, 2020

To our Americare Families:

Our communities recently shared their plans to open visitation for residents and their loved ones.   Some communities have already started and others are set to start. 

 As you know, the states in which we operate are experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases.  This is prompting states and counties to issue additional guidelines on when senior living communities can start guest visits (outside or inside).  

We ask that you contact your community directly prior to your scheduled visit to determine if visits have been temporarily placed on hold.     We still welcome window visits (providing windows remain closed).   

We too want to reunite our residents and their families.  Doing so in a responsible manner will help keep our residents and employees safe.  We appreciate your continued support during these challenging times.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Clay Crosson
