Southminster continues with it’s phased re-opening, expanding programming options and exercise classes. In addition visitation guidelines have been loosened to allow for family and friends to visit. Residents and their guests now have access to all shared common spaces. We’re most excited to announce the reopening of our dining venues to residents. Our formal dining room, The Promenade Room, has been open since mid-March. On May 3rd, our casual dining venue, The Oak Leaf Grille will open sporting a new look and an offering a variety of new menu items. Residents continue to enjoy use of the new shared community spaces connecting Embrace Health to our independent living apartments. These spaces include The Gallery, Lola’s Bar, the Loft Library, and a beautifully landscaped courtyard – each offering cozy sitting areas, perfect for sharing time with family and friends. The “small house” neighborhoods in Embrace Health are now open with friends and family welcome to visit.

With re-opening, Southminster continues to host COVID vaccine clinics for our staff and vendors. Our most recent clinic in April administered close to 150 vaccines, our largest clinic yet! Southminster’s next vaccine clinic is scheduled for May 12th.

It has been heart-warming to see residents reconnect with their spouses and family members after a long year of isolation. We are grateful to everyone who has helped us keep our residents and staff healthy and safe by respecting and following our continuing COVID guidelines.
