Milestone Achievement Makes Lincoln Court One of the First
Senior Living Communities Safe to Visit Following Pandemic
Idaho Falls, Idaho—March 26, 2021—Visitors can now tour Lincoln Court Retirement Community and consider it as an option to move senior loved ones into after the community recently reached a 95 percent vaccination rate among residents and employees. The successful vaccination rate was achieved after three vaccination clinics and the tireless efforts of both Matthew Johnson, Executive Director and Olivia Beckman, the Director of Nursing. The residents and employees received the Pfizer vaccine.
Lincoln Court is widely respected in the Idaho Falls community, having been voted the number one Best Retirement Community five years in a row; the Best Place to Work two years in a row; and as having the Best Boss (Matthew Johnson) two years in a row, and Best Nurse (Olivia Beckman), all by the Post Register newspaper Readers’ Choice Awards. In addition, SeniorAdvisor.com named Lincoln Court 2021 Best of Senior Living.
“Choosing to be vaccinated is very personal,” says Matthew Johnson, Executive Director. “We would like to thank our staff, residents and volunteers for looking outside their personal beliefs and choosing to be vaccinated for the continued safety of our community. I am proud to be a part of an organization that consistently puts others needs above their own. Not every retirement community in our area can say that nearly 100% of their staff and residents chose to be vaccinated, but Lincoln Court can. This is yet another example of why we have consistently been voted the #1 Retirement Community in Idaho Falls and have been serving seniors in our area for over 40 years.”
Lincoln Court Retirement is managed by Stellar Senior Living, a family-owned and operated company based in Salt Lake City, UT. The company has placed vaccine distribution among its highest priorities, to keep residents safe and to hasten the reopening of activities, dining, and overall functioning of each community. Stellar Senior Living’s Medical Director, Dr Peter Nielsen, and Megan James, RN, BSN, the Director of Health Services, gave a recorded presentation to residents and employees explaining the benefits of the vaccine in December of 2020.
