Senior Living communities get a boost from technology
Innovative solutions support residents and help them stay connected with loved ones during the pandemic.
In March of 2020, when the world was in the thick of understanding the effects of the coronavirus, everyday life for thousands of Minnesota senior housing residents immediately needed to change. With guidelines put into place requiring masks and social distancing, and stay-at-home orders…
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 are following the guidelines and restrictions of the Center for Disease Prevention (CDC) as well as the Minnesota Departments of Health and Human Services. 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.
