With the impending arrival of Hurricane Ian in Florida, we would like you to know that it is our goal to shelter in place unless ordered to evacuate by authorities. Families will be notified by each community regarding specific plans should evacuation occur. Our communities are equipped with large generators and sufficient fuel supplies in the event of loss of power. Our company philosophy is that residents will be better served, safer, and less anxious if they are able to stay at our communities in familiar surroundings with staff available to see them through the storm. Residents may also want to stay with family members and if this is the case, please arrange with the on-site team at their community. Please feel free to speak with the Executive Director or any of the Senior leadership at the community if you have questions. Best regards and stay safe. We will update after the storm has passed.
