"No visitors of residents shall be admitted to any Home, except for end-of-life situations."- From the Ohio Department of Health
At this time in our nursing homes and assisted living facilities, visitation will only be granted in cases of end-of-life care. This will be done on a case-by-case basis. Visitation must take place between 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and is limited to the resident's room. Any approved visitor must still pass a screening for fever, shortness of breath, cough, and sore throat.
Willow Brook's restaurants are closed to the public and to the residents until further notice. Delivery services are available to residents only at no fee. Call the reservation line by 11 a.m. for lunch or by 4 p.m. for dinner.
All group activities at Willow Brook are cancelled until further notice. That includes internal activity programs for residents and any outings. We are also cancelling any events or meetings scheduled by outside groups through March and April at a minimum.
Essential vendors will be admitted and must complete a healthcare screening.
We have a pre-recorded message with our latest updates: 614-410-3780.
