Cedars COVID-19 Statement

Posted by Cedars on March 18, 2020

March 17, 2020


We have implemented a number of procedures and taken action to keep our residents and staff safe in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


            This includes restricting access to our community to staff, residents and essential medical vendors and visitors.  All residents, staff, vendors and visitors are screened prior to being permitted to enter. 


            We are still accepting new admissions, but they must be screened prior to move in and special move-in procedures will apply. 


Enhanced infection control and disinfection policies and procedures are in place.  Staff are also receiving additional training and supervision. We have also modified our congregate dining and activity programming.


We continue to monitor guidance and information provided by CDC, MDH, industry leaders and other governmental organizations, and will be making changes as determined necessary moving forward.


We are providing extra support to our staff during this challenging time and are committed to responding to any questions or concerns our residents and their loved ones may have.  As always, our priority remains keeping our residents and staff safe and providing exceptional care and service.


Thank you,


Lisa Nelson \ Cedars of Austin

Welcome to The Cedars of Austin’s new and improved website and our first blog post! We hope you’ll find this site a valuable resource and tool. The new website gives us a fresh look and feel and is also easy for us to update. This means that we’ll be better able to add news and information on a regular basis. When creating our new website we focused on maximum functionality and ease of use combined with higher quality of content. Basically we want to make sure that the good information is easy to find!

Our new website features in depth information on The Cedars. Read the story behind The Cedars – how Darrel Farr chose the site and how it is still family owned and operated. Meet our fantastic staff, view our floor plans, learn about the range of customized housing and healthcare services we provide as well as our unique activity and wellness programming and so much more.

One new feature we are particularly excited about is “Your Opinion Matters.” This feature allows you to easily tell us what you think, give feedback, or make suggestions.  We can’t wait to hear everything you have to say!

Just as before, you are still able to access our current Activity Calendars, Menus and our monthly newsletter – the Cedars Chatter. This way far-away friends and family members can experience what their loved ones are up to.

Our new website features lots of pictures and videos, making it easy to see what residents experience every day! Take a look at our building features as well as our beautiful campus and wonderful residents. If you are a new visitor we hope you enjoy getting to know us. If you are a returning visitor, we hope you enjoy getting to know us better!

We hope you will check our blog often for updates about The Cedars, our residents, staff, resources and news on senior related issues.

As we continue to grow and adapt to the changing times, The Cedars of Austin remains committed to providing quality senior housing with services. We strongly encourage feedback on our new website to continue enriching the lives of our residents, their loved ones and future residents.
