We encourage all residents and staff to get a COVID-19 vaccination to protect each other and help end this pandemic. We have been pleased to host convenient onsite vaccination. For more information about the COVID-19 vaccine and process, visit our COVID-19 Vaccination: Frequently Asked Questions page.

Clean Air

PHS has installed air disinfection and purification equipment. This bipolar ionization technology safely cleans the air inside buildings by using an electronic charge to create a field of ions that kills pathogens, reduces the airborne concentration of the COVID virus and increases the effectiveness of HVAC filtration. This is accomplished without using unsafe chemicals or creating any unwanted byproducts.

Federal and state departments of health have recently issued guidance further easing restrictions in long-term care settings based on vaccination status. Please note, this guidance still requires mask usage for staff, visitors and residents in most areas. Find more information on our COVID-19 information page or contact the specific PHS community to learn more.

Screening & Testing

We have a screening process for anyone entering a community and we assist residents and staff who are symptomatic or have known COVID-19 exposure to be tested. On-site asymptomatic testing is provided when warranted, following confirmed cases or elevated risk from the broader community.

Primary Care Telemedicine

In partnership with your primary care provider, we can help facilitate the use of telemedicine to conduct phone-based visits. This reduces physical contact while maintaining exceptional care.

Cleaning & Disinfection

Protocols for deep cleaning and sanitization are in practice. We continue to take extra measures to clean and disinfect all high-touch areas throughout the building. This includes using electrostatic sprayers and other large scale disinfection equipment. Handwashing stations and/or hand sanitizer dispensers are at all entrances.

It's still a great time to join us. Check out this story about how a new group of residents at Prairie Gate are forming bonds of friendship over conversation and doing good works. They call themselves the Busy Bodies.

Hear from the people we serve

Residents and families are feeling safe and well cared for. Read what they have to say in these testimonials and reviews!

"Towner Crest was the right place for me at this time in my life and I am very happy to be here. I am so grateful for all the new friends I have met, even though I still will keep in touch with my old ones. In many ways, we are a new family learning to live and grow together. With the scare of COVID-19, I am so happy to be here, surrounded with friends and encouraging staff, instead of back in my condo by myself. Although some new guidelines have been put in place, I know they are only trying to protect us." ~ Ginny H., Resident
"I thought that maybe I came here too fast but boy am I sure glad that I did! At my condo, I had no one to talk to and I was completely isolated. Nothing to do! I would not want to be there right now, in the middle of all this pandemic and be totally bored. Here, I can go out of my apartment and there is always someone to talk to – a neighbor or a staff person (they have wonderful staff)! It is so important to not be alone and especially since I cannot drive. I am looking forward to going out on the organized outings when they come back after Covid. The food is really, really, good—they bring it to us now! Right to our apartments! What more could you want? For me, this is the place to be!" ~ Bob J.​, Resident
"EagleCrest assisted living is a great home for both my parents as they age. The relatively small community means they are known well. The staff is caring, capable, and responsive to individual needs and they have accommodated my parents' changing care with compassion. EagleCrest has also met the additional challenges of the pandemic with transparency, taking effective precautions that give us all as much peace of mind as can be had these days." ~ Susan N., Resident family member
"My mom is a very happy resident at Stonecrest. The staff is friendly, kind, caring, and very attentive. Every staff person greets my mom by name. After being in her own home for over sixty years, I expected my mom’s transition to assisted living to be somewhat difficult, but the staff were very helpful in making sure she felt comfortable. The building is clean, the food is fantastic, and they have done a tremendous job keeping the residents safe, and families well informed, during the pandemic. I highly recommend Stonecrest!" ~ Cindy K., Resident family member
"If I could give Croixdale more than 5 stars I would! My aunt moved to Croixdale Memory Care in March 2020 during a pandemic. What would have been a tough transition from living on her own to being in a long term care facility could not have gone any better due the staff at Croixdale being top notch! They ensure all of their residents are happy, loved, well adjusted and busy! My aunt has thrived in this environment and the staff and other residents have become like family! Thank you for all that you do!" ~ Lisa W., Resident family member
