VILLA ST. VINCENT AND THE SUMMIT ALLOWING OUTDOOR VISITATION WITH RESIDENTS

The Villa St. Vincent and The Summit Apartments are open for outdoor visitation with residents. Visits may only occur in the outdoor area where at least six feet of physical distance can be maintained from other individuals. No visits are permitted inside the facility. Due to the risk of exposure, holding hands, hugging, kissing, or other physical contact is not allowed during family visits.

  • Activity staff will be available to assist with visitations Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All visits must be made by appointment in advance of the visit. Please plan on the visit being 20 minutes or less.
  • Visits must be held with staff present; therefore, the hours are limited at this time although the hope is to expand hours in the near future.
