COVID-19 and Nursing Homes/CCRCs: A Cautious Return to the “New Normal”

As much of the country looks to get back to normal, nursing homes, personal care homes, and Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) face a different timeline and set of circumstances on keeping residents and staff safe.

Dir. of Resident Communities at Messiah Lifeways to discuss the topic and our ongoing approach to fight COVID-19.
