Vaccination Administration to Begin Soon at Ebenezer Communities

COVID-19: Update

Ebenezer and The Pillars Senior Living’s top priority is the well-being and safety of our residents and staff members who live and work in our communities.

We have temporarily suspended group events that invite people from outside our community in, and we are currently limiting the size of group activities in our community spaces and outdoors for residents. This may be subject to change based on infection control protocol.
