Following the Lead of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
At Christian Care Communities, the health and well-being of our residents and employees is always our first priority. Therefore, we are taking extra precautions over the coming weeks and months to ensure that our communities across the state remain guarded against the spread of viral infections. We are following guidance from the CDC, CMS, and state officials and have adopted a policy to restrict visitors. Per this guidance, we are able to make exceptions for end of life care through our spiritual care programs. We understand that this is a big ask for our residents and families. As a healthcare provider, it is our obligation to do everything we can to protect those we serve.
Additionally, we are providing our employees, residents, visitors and vendors with ongoing education regarding proper hygiene practices. This includes heightened awareness about the importance of hand-washing, coughing and sneezing etiquette, and the frequent sanitizing of all surfaces.
We understand that we care for our country’s most vulnerable population, and we are committed to ensuring their health and happiness. Every member of our campus team is dedicated to this mission, and we will always operate with our residents’ best interests at heart.

Please allow me to close this important message with a prayer.
Gracious and loving God,
when we aren’t sure, help us be calm;
when information comes from all sides, correct and not, help us to discern;
when fear makes it hard to breathe, and anxiety seems to be the order of the day, slow us down, God;
help us to reach out with our hearts, when we can’t touch with our hands;
help us to be socially connected, when we have to be socially distant;
help us to love as perfectly as we can, knowing that perfect love casts out all fear.
Today and coming weeks calls for signs of faith, hope, and love. We need one another now as colleagues and friends to support one another in the reorganizing of our work, but also we need one another’s support, mentally and spiritually.
God of life, you have promised to be with us every day, also in difficult days, like in times like these.
Give us clarity in our minds, strength in our work and discernment, rest as we sleep, peace in our minds. Be with those who need help more than we do ourselves, help us to see what we can offer from your love.
