Beginning tomorrow Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 some significant changes are occurring:
- Visitors will not be allowed in the building unless they are essential caregivers or vendors.
- The dining rooms will be closed. Food delivery to your apartment will be free of charge.
- All group activities are cancelled. This includes all music performances, parties, church services etc.
I ask that you limit your movements throughout the building and leaving the building. The government has suggested that seniors self-quarantine, as the coronavirus is exceptionally difficult on seniors.
I am sorry for this, as I know that none of this is easy. I am taking direction from the CDC, Care providers of Minnesota and the Department of Health. Everything is to keep you safe and well.
You can plan for these changes for the remainder of March. Our team will be evaluating the situation as things evolve.

Dear Family and Friends of St. Ann’s, we are receiving many calls and emails regarding wanting to come visit your loved ones. At this point we have cancelled or postponed all large events such as our March Rummage Sale and outside entertainment. Regarding visitors we are limiting visitors so only NECESSARY VISITORS enter and that you are not showing any signs of illness or have not traveled or could have been exposed. As this progresses we will keep you updated. Our residents safety and well being is our highest priority. Thank you.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. Thank you to everyone who made our Holiday Season beautiful and all the community support we have received the past year. I was able to enjoy some peaceful time at home. We have a new cat, and I was able to be around as he adjusted to our home. We rescued him from a shelter. He’s two and a beautiful black panther.
I want to talk about our housekeeping and nursing services. When the housekeepers come to your room, be kind and let them in to do their job. I expect them to help keep your apartments clean, so please allow them to do so. The same is true with scheduled nursing services, like showers. Please work with the nursing staff to get your shower at the scheduled time. It just helps everything go smoother in our not so perfect world.
Thank You for your help with these things and have a great New Year!
Scott and Jan
We wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving, and many happy blessings this holiday season!
