Update Regarding Restrictions of Visitation at the Villas of Guerin Woods
Pursuant to the most recent guidance from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Medicaid and Medicare Services, ALL visitors are now prohibited from entering the Villas of Guerin Woods.
Those for whom a very narrow, “end-of-life,” compassionate exception is permissible have already been contacted directly by management. If you have not been contacted directly by management regarding end-of-life visitation you may not visit at this time.
Based on the progression of the COVID-19 disease, we will revise or suspend this policy of exclusion.
Thank you very much for your understanding. I encourage you to visit the websites of the CDC and CMS if you have questions regarding the rationale for this latest change to our policy.
Your assistance and cooperation are essential to protecting our elders, employees, and the community. Thank you for your support.

MORRIS: Elder care with a twist
In this business, some phone calls spell trouble or problems. Someone is upset about a story that has been written, or maybe we didn’t cover an event they thought we should have. Then there are the Sister Barbara Ann Zeller phone calls. And suddenly, all is right again in my little neck of the woods. Read More
