Dear friends and family members,
Thank you for your support and compassion with our priority to maintain the health, wellness and safety of your loved one.
For Assisted Living and Nursing Home Residents: Effective immediately, Jennings prohibits all visitors from entering every building where we provide assisted living and nursing home care. This is in accordance with a pending order from the Governor of the State of Ohio. We do not currently have any instances of COVID-19 in our residences, and we are making decisions out of an abundance of caution with information that we continuously monitor. If you previously were offered an exception based on your loved one’s needs: we are no longer permitted to make exceptions.
We know that the news of this virus is very difficult. We encourage you to connect with your loved one in other ways, and our staff can help you use technology. We will continue to accept deliveries and mail that our staff can take to your loved one. Please mark the items and make arrangements to deliver such items to our vestibule Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:00a.m. – 2:00p.m.
For Independent Living Residents: we strongly recommend that you do not visit, as residents rely on you to keep them healthy and for the common good of our community.
We will continue to keep you informed. If you have questions, please contact:
