We are grateful for your outreach of support during this challenging time. We continue to follow CDC, State of Michigan and local recommendations to reduce exposure to the COVID-19 virus. As always, our priority is the safety and well-being of our residents, family members, staff and volunteers.
At this time, until further notice:
We are allowing only 2 pre-approved immediate family and essential healthcare workers to enter the house between the hours of 11:00am – 5:00pm. If you have a question as to whether you are an essential visitor, please reach out to us by phone at (906) 482-4438.
