Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

"There is no way I can ever thank you enough for everything!!! You all came into my life at the worst time of my life and brought sunshine and smiles, held me when I cried and helped me to laugh!! All of you are responsible for so many people who are sometimes completely helpless - and they could not be in better hands!! Thank you and God Bless You! Love, Dee H." (former short term resident)
I have had a remarkable experience here at Ansted Center. I'm so glad I did not miss the chance to be here. The food was amazing and the staff are phenomenal. The therapists and nurses helped me so much with my arms. The area around the center is beautiful and I loved looking out the window and watching the birds, squirrels, and trees. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
