Hello friends and families! We want to express our continued gratitude to everyone for your continued support and patience as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our residents, staff and the Jefferson community.

Today, we finished the second round of the COVID-19 vaccine administration. 92% of our residents were vaccinated and 70% of our employees. It was a very seamless process. A big thank you to Walgreens and our employees in charge of the clinic today. The team did an amazing job with no issues. Now our nursing department will take the lead to chart and do the vitals.  

This is a friendly reminder the vaccination process is a two- step vaccine. We want to remind everyone that we cannot immediately re-open after the second dose.  We do need about 21 days after the second dose to allow for the vaccine to reach its full potential. We will keep the lines of communication open as we follow the guidelines in returning to normal operations.

Last, our world has changed, but our mission has not. Providing an exceptional lifestyle to retirement living in a home like atmosphere with kind, caring, proactive, and dedicated staff members is what we do. We have received our COVID-19 vaccinations and we feel confident in the safety and security of our environment.  

We truly want to thank everyone. We are optimistic as we move forward in 2021. 

Thank you, 

Ali Meiners

Current Visitation Statement - June 2020

The wellbeing of our residents and staff is our utmost priority, and we do not take our responsibility to protect against COVID-19 lightly. While the Governor’s order does take steps to re-open business in Iowa, our mission to protect our residents remains our priority. Many of our residents are considered “high risk” for contracting the virus. Therefore, we will not be able to welcome visitors back into our facility on June 15. 

As a nursing and rehabilitation facility, we are still mandated by CMS to restrict visitation until entering Phase 2 of the Phased Easing of Restrictions for Long-Term Care Facilities plan. The greatest COVID-19 risk comes from the movement of persons into and out of our facility, so until we receive further clarification from CMS, visitation restrictions will remain in place. In the meantime, we will continue to evaluate our residents’ health statuses and needs. We will warmly welcome visitors as soon as the Iowa Department of Health, Iowa Healthcare Association, Department of Inspection and Appeals, our Governor and our medical director all believe it is safe to do so. 

We are very sorry for the prolonged disconnection with family members. We understand this is a difficult time for our residents and their families, and please know we are dedicated to keeping you connected with your loved ones during this time. We are still here to facilitate phone calls or video chats. 

If you would like to schedule a phone call or virtual call with your family member, we encourage you to reach out at the following link or call (515) 386-4107 during regular business hours Monday – Friday.

Thank you for your support and understanding through this challenging time.
