2020 visitor updates

April is National Poetry Month. We invite you to join the Jennings community in writing poetry and prose throughout the month.

Our daily poetry prompts will spark your creativity in the spirit of others involved in Jennings’ Poetry Project. Whether you are a novice writer or a pro, we hope you will consider sharing your work with our community as we write our way through April!

Each day we will post to our web site and Facebook page. Visit jenningsohio.org/poetry-project20 for the prompts and for a journal you can download and print. You can contribute too! Email your work to marketing@jenningsohio.org or post directly to Facebook page at facebook.com/JenningsOhio if you would like yours published too!

March 22, 2020—Governor Mike DeWine announced that the Ohio Department of Health issued an order to stay at home as of March 23, 2020 at 11:59p.m. Please be reassured that Jennings is considered an essential business, and Jennings staff will continue to serve residents with quality, compassionate care. Thank you, Jennings staff, as you continue to arrive every day during this time with your dedication to provide care and services to the most vulnerable Ohioans.

Jennings has also been approved as a pandemic child care service in The Learning Circle, our on-site child care center on the Garfield Heights campus. This means that we will serve children of Jennings staff, local health care staff and emergency responders. This area remains physically separate from where we care for older adults.

We are honored to care for your loved ones, and we thank you for your continued support.
