WesleyLife and COVID: Vaccine/Reopening Updates
** UPDATE **: As COVID numbers continue to decline, our Communities for Healthy Living are following guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and are beginning to reopen. If you have questions about vaccination schedules or the reopening status of your loved one's community, please contact the Executive Director of that campus.
- Our campuses' abilities to stay open will depend in part on the absence of COVID cases inside those communities. Family members: Please continue to wear masks and practice social distancing any time you are away from your home to help keep yourselves and your loved ones safe.
All are urged to take the COVID vaccine as soon as it becomes available to you. Vaccine-related resources are below.
Questions about the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine? Join fellow LeadingAge Iowa member community Oaknoll of Iowa City for an expert panel that includes medical professionals from the University of Iowa, one of the clinical trial sites for the vaccine. The video addresses myths about the vaccine and answers frequently asked questions. View the video here.

How We Can Help You at Home
As always, through our WesleyLife at Home network of services, we offer assistance not just in our communities, but to older adults living in their houses or apartments, with relatives, or in other living arrangements. That assistance ranges from medical and non-medical home health care to hospice care, transportation, and Meals on Wheels.
Simply call Kelli or Irina at (515) 978-2777 to learn more, or to start services. And please be assured our caregivers continue to follow Centers for Disease Control recommendations regarding hygiene, health, and safety.
