Attention Care Team Members
September 27, 2021 – Majestic Care remains vigilant to living our Mission that creates a magical culture through the hearts of our Care Team Members. Majestic Care prioritizes the health, safety, and well-being of all residents, Care Team members and family members within our community. This pandemic has seen unprecedented challenges for the healthcare industry, our nation, and our world. In particular, those challenges presented to Post-Acute Care, with all the changes in regulations, knowledge, and directives, the organization has sought to be in full compliance and a leader in the healthcare industry. The recent federal vaccine mandate is the most recent example of how we are asking our organization to rise to the newest challenge and lead the way. Through much communication, engagement, and research, we are announcing that all Majestic Care communities will embrace the requirement of the COVID-19 vaccine to keep our residents, Care Team members, and family members safe.
Effective October 1st, 2021 – all new hires will be required to be vaccinated.
Effective November 1st, 2021 – all Care Team Members and contracted employees will be required to be vaccinated.
The safety, security, and health of our residents and Care Team members is our number one concern, especially during this pandemic. We are assured that this requirement will provide the best approach to quality care for our communities and those residents we have the privilege to serve. We will continue to monitor updates and governmental direction regarding the mandate and will reserve the right to change this policy, if needed, to comply with all federal mandates. If you have questions or believe you qualify for a Medical or Religious exemption, you are encouraged to speak to your Human Resource Representative or Executive Director. All exemption requests will need to be submitted no later than October 15, 2021.
We continue to remain in this fight against COVID-19 together and our gratitude for all the support, hard work and commitment that is shown daily is overwhelming. You are what makes the Majestic Difference.

Majestic Care’s COVID-19 Response
When Majestic Care was first notified about Covid-19, we immediately began preparing by establishing support units and collecting PPE. These units are designed for residents within our community who have tested positive.
These units have designated staff and the added resource of a Respiratory Therapist to assist with respiratory complications. We are not admitting residents from the hospital with Covid-19, these units are for our internal residents and our residents returning from the hospital. Care provided in these units will be tailored to each resident and focused on reclaiming full health.
- Direct care during respiratory complications/ Covid-19 experience.
- Fully stocked necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
- Respiratory assessments completed at least twice a day (more if necessary).
- Private rooms to control the spread of Covid-19.
- Mandated state, federal and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance when caring for residents with positive/suspected Covid-19.
