Prairie Meadows Protects Residents, Staff, Vendors with Access to COVID Vaccinations

In an effort to protect the safety of residents, prospective residents, staff, and vendors, Prairie Meadows Alzheimer’s Special Care Center ( is ensuring that they all have ready access to the COVID-19 vaccination. In accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and in recognition of the extraordinary burden of the pandemic on long-term care facilities, people living in senior living and assisted living facilities are among the first groups to get the vaccines. Prairie Meadows associates have assured that their residents, staff, and vendors will have access to them by early this month. They are also continuing to provide a season full of safe engagement through their specialized programming.

Part of JEA Senior Living, Prairie Meadows Alzheimer’s Special Care Center is a memory-care facility with 66 beds in four types of apartment-style housing—private deluxe, private, semi-private (just shared bathroom), and companion rooms—and a nurse at the facility around the clock. They use a “Meaningful Moments” program to help get to know residents by learning their life stories and finding out their preferences, likes, dislikes, and cherished memories. Prairie Meadows then incorporates that information into their everyday care. For more information, visit or call (402) 391-2790.
