We remain focused on the safety and comfort of residents and our associates that care for them. We are working as quickly as we can to return to normal.

Residents will remain in their temporary accommodations until officials approve their return. Once buildings can be assessed and are safe for return, we will be able to return residents to their home communities. 

Building Statuses

We are still assessing all of the buildings that have been evacuated. If you have a specific question about a loved one, we encourage you to contact the community directly.

As of Tuesday, we are aware there is water intrusion in several areas of the community. The community is on generator power as remediation contractors and industrial hygienists work to assess the extent of the damage. We expect to receive a report later this week.

The community leadership will be communicating with families directly regarding the status of residents and the building going forward.
