We are now going to begin visitation inside the buildings. Here are the following guidelines:
- You must make an appointment by calling (352) 330-3900
- You must see a nurse to be educated on “Personal Protection Equipment”
- The visitors are limited to one at a time
- The resident can select two people to visit
- The visits are limited to 30 minutes.
The Assisted Living visitation will be in the library or porch.
The Memory Care visitation will be in the office in the lobby area or the Assisted Living Porch.
Memory Care families still need to be screened at the Assisted Living front desk and they will let the Memory Care nurse know you are coming.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
As of today we are still Covid Free. Thanks to all for keeping us safe!
Today’s announcement by the governor is a significant step forward in achieving our shared goal of reuniting our residents with their loved ones. We know you are looking forward to being reconnected with your loved one in person and like you, we look forward to returning some sense of normalcy to our center so our residents can once again experience it as the place they know as their home. We are in the process of putting the policies in place to reopen safely to visitors based on the state’s guidance and will communicate those procedures very soon.
In the meantime, please know that our focus will remain on keeping our residents and staff safe from the virus, which has been our number one priority since this pandemic began. If you have questions, please contact me.
I am happy to report that our third round of Covid -19 staff testing is complete and we have 0 positive staff members. At the present time we have 0 residents with Covid-19 and no one is symptomatic.
Everyone is doing a great in keeping us Covid-19 free.

To: Mission Oaks Families and Residents
As COVID -19 marches on we find ourselves inundated with information, mis- information and speculation. In the past I have sent emails and letters, notes at the bottom of billing to keep you informed about Mission Oaks. Some of you stated you did not receive emails or letters so to solve this problem and to have communication consistent and timely we have created a COVID – 19 tabs on our website.
www. Missionoaks.net I will post weekly updates about our community, CDC guidelines and common concerns that I hear from other resident’s family members.
The COVID-19 tabs can be found upper left on the small grey tab bar and on the middle of the page under the tab Latest News. This will be our only way of communication so please check our website. If we need to get urgent communication to you, we will call.
We are going to start Porch Visits. Steve has made a plexiglass screen so you can see your loved one and enjoy a visit and stay within CDC guidelines. You still must be screened and wear a mask. The visits will be on the Assisted Living front porch.
These will be appointment only visits – please call the Concierge (352-330-3900) and she will have the schedule and will be able to make your appointment for your visit. We will need to be conscientious about your visit and your time as others will be arriving for a visit and we must be careful of how many people are on the porch at one time. Due to inclement weather the visit will be cancelled, to be sure please call the Concierge.
The staff and I want to express how grateful we are that all of you have been so supportive during the trying time of COVID-19.
With Warm Regards—-
Porch Visits Schedule Monday- Friday
Beginning August 10th
10:00 – 10:30
We finished our third round of staff testing on Friday and will be informing our family members this week of the results.
