The safety of our persons served is of the utmost importance to On With Life. Due to recommendations from our regulating entities and cases of COVID-19 in Iowa, On With Life is limiting visitors in our Ankeny and Glenwood inpatient programs to one designated family member only. Please know we understand how hard this is on families, but due to CMS regulations and person served safety, it is required at this time to prevent exposure to our very medically fragile population and the staff that care for them at On With Life.
We have updated guidelines for all of our programs, which can be found below. One visitor per person served may be allowed to enter our buildings depending on the current status of our facility and persons served. At this time, additional family members, friends, volunteers and vendors are not allowed in our facilities. Family involvement has always been a guiding principle of On With Life and we will do everything we can to maintain family involvement as restrictions are implemented.
Our leadership team continues to evaluate our response to the COVID-19 pandemic on a regular basis, and are in constant communication with our staff regarding our plan. We will continue to update our persons served and families via phone and email, while this web page can be used as an additional resource.
We’re grateful for the many individuals who are asking what they can do to support On With Life during this time. View our Coronavirus Support page to learn more about how you can support our persons served and staff during this extraordinary time.
