We are so pleased to announce that in-person visitation will start on Monday, March 22 at Shirkey Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and Oak Ridge Assisted Living & Memory Care. Visits will be from 1 to 7 p.m. daily.

Visitors must call in advance to set up an appointment, as we are limiting the number of visitors at facilities. To schedule an appointment at Shirkey, call 816-776-5403. For Oak Ridge, call 816-776-3435.

Visitors and residents who both received COVID-19 vaccines can have physical contact while wearing a mask. Those who are not yet vaccinated must take CDC-recommended precautions of social distancing and wearing of masks.

The reopening is due to both Shirkey and Oak Ridge being Covid-free, as well as Ray County falling below the COVID-19 positivity rate of 10%. Let’s remain vigilant against the spread of the virus so we can continue these positive steps.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding through these trying and difficult times. Our hope, like yours, is for you to connect with your loved ones as you did in the past.
