Hurricane Idalia – Return home Westminster Shores Westminster Point Pleasant Westminster Manor August 31, 2023 1:00 pm

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.

Hurricane Idalia – Westminster Shores August 30, 2023

We want to update you on the status of residents who were required to be relocated from Westminster Shores due to the evacuation order for Level A areas issued by Pinellas County Emergency Management office on Monday, August 28.

Pinellas County has not yet issued an “all clear” for the evacuation of Level A.  Additionally, Westminster Shores Assisted Living has to be cleared by the Agency of Health Care Administration before any Assisted Living resident can return to either the Underwood building or Bahama Villas.

No residents can return to Westminster Shores until notified by a Westminster Shores team member.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with waiting for the approved time for residents to return to the campus.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

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.

Hurricane Idalia – Westminster Shores August 29, 2023 8:30 am

Westminster Shores is actively planning and preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Idalia. Our community is located in a Level A flood zone and must follow the evacuation order issued from the Pinellas County Emergency Management office. We are evacuating all Assisted Living residents who are remaining with us during the storm period as of 8:30 a.m. this morning, Tuesday, August 29. We want to assure you that we have a detailed evacuation plan in place. We are relocating our Assisted Living residents to Westminster Winter Park, in Winter Park. Our trained team members will ensure that your loved ones receive the same level of care and attention throughout the evacuation process.

To facilitate communication, we encourage you to contact us via email or cell phone for any inquiries or updates moving forward. Please note that residents who are going with a family member may NOT return to campus until we have sent an all clear and have been cleared from the Florida Agency of Health Care Administration to return to campus.

Westminster Shores will be completely closed and no team members will be on campus once we have evacuated. The safety and comfort of our residents are of paramount importance, and we are committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure their well-being. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time of transition.
