We are pleased to have weathered Hurricane Idalia at our evacuation sites. We are now making our way back to the community for those residents who evacuated with us. Our first priority is always the safety and well-being of our residents and team members. While there may be a lot of debris and clean-up, we’re pleased that life should return to normal at our community soon.
Residents who evacuated on their own or with family members should follow the guidance of community administration about when to return to the community.
We thank all of the communities and their residents and team members who supported our evacuations: Westminster Palms and Westminster Suncoast in St. Petersburg, Poet’s Walk in Sarasota, Florida Presbyterian Homes in Lakeland, Westminster Towers in Orlando, and Westminster Winter Park and Westminster Baldwin Park.
We are continuing to weather the storm at our evacuation sites. Everyone is safe and doing well. Thank you to the team members and residents at Westminster Palms and Westminster Suncoast in St. Petersburg, Westminster Towers in Orlando, Westminster Winter Park, Florida Presbyterian Homes in Lakeland, Legacy Pointe at UCF in Orlando and Poet’s Walk in Sarasota for supporting our residents.
We will continue to follow the guidance of local emergency management officials. We are already making plans to return home, once the storm has passed and it is safe to do so, for those residents who evacuated with us. After the storm we will evaluate any potential damage to our community, because the safety of residents and team members is our first priority.
We will update with more information about our plans to return to the community and when it is safe for residents who evacuated on their own to return home.
We continue to monitor the course of Tropical Storm Idalia and follow the guidance of the National Hurricane Center and National Weather Service. At this time, it is unclear what the impact will be or whether our community will be impacted. Please know that we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure safety. We will provide updates as our plans develop and the storm’s track becomes clearer.
Our team members are working hard and following their emergency preparedness plans. As part of that plan, we will be providing ongoing updates as appropriate. Please help us with this effort by calling us only as needed.
