Villa Rose Senior Living Community


May 21, 2021

Dear Residents and Families,

Good morning, I am happy to report that things are continuing to move forward at Villa Rose. Effective Friday, June 4, 2021 the following changes will implemented.

Reopening—Phase Three

  • Family members who have had the vaccine and can provide their vaccination card, and a photo ID following 14 days from your 2nd shot, will be allowed to visit the community and will be given fob access to the front door only.
  • Family members will need to drop off their fob at the office during visiting hours. Every Friday we will program the front door, so that your fob will have access. You will be able to pick your fob up during normal visiting hours.
  • Family fob access will be from 9 a.m.—9 p.m.
  • Fob access will be only for the front door, you must sign in, only one additional family member will be able to come in with you.  This guest must have checked in with the office prior to this visit.
  • We will have a sign-in book at the front door, we ask that each guest sign in.
  • We will be monitoring security cameras each week, if you violate your fob access, we will turn your fob access off.
  • Please do not share your fob with anyone else.
  • Two family fobs are available for each apartment.  Fobs are $25.00, this fee is refundable when you return the fob.  We encourage families to decide who would need to have access after visiting hours.
  • Vaccinated family members may now eat in the dining room with your loved ones.
  • Any children (under 18) must visit during visitation hours, since they must be screened.  

We have made some changes to visiting hours. Visiting Hours will be extending to include some evening and weekend times. 
Monday:  9 a.m.— 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.—8 p.m.  
Tuesday:  9 a.m.— 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.—5 p.m.  
Wednesday: 9 a.m.— 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.—8 p.m.  
Thursday: 9 a.m.— 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.—8 p.m.  
Friday:  9 a.m.— 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.—5 p.m.  
Saturday:  10 a.m.—2 p.m.
Sunday:  10 a.m.—3 p.m.

I am hoping to offer a visiting area later in the month of June for family members who are not vaccinated.  If you are interested in getting the vaccine, we encourage you to call Well Creek Pharmacy and speak to Bruce, 618-377-5356.

*Please note the office will be closed on Monday, May 31st for Memorial Day, there will be No visiting hours this day. 

Thank you again for your understanding as we slowly open the community.

How We Are Different

Villa Rose is unique! We are an independent living community that allows seniors to remain as independent as possible while offering them the resources they may need to do just that. What makes us different? We have supportive services available, but you don’t pay for them unless you need them or until you need them. Why should you pay for services you aren’t using? That’s just one of the ways that we’re able to offer the best value in retirement living in the St. Louis region.

At Villa Rose, you have your own private senior apartment with your own furnishings, and you come and go as you please. Yet, with your rent on your apartment, you receive all the benefits that come with living in our secure retirement community, including three meals-a-day, 24-hour emergency response, activities and entertainment, just to name a few. If the day comes that you need assistance—such as help with your medications, bathing or dressing, or getting to and from meals—it’s here. If you need help, even temporarily, you can contract with the on-site private-duty home care service and receive appropriate assistance to keep you as independent as possible, for as long as possible.

“Thank you so much for the love and concern my Mom has there. It is a beautiful and clean place for her to be independent and cared for! Even though I think my Mom is treated special, I have been to Villa Rose often enough to know that all the residents are treated with the respect that they deserve!”


“Please pass on to all of your staff that Dad goes on and on about how nice everyone is and how helpful everyone is at Villa Rose. I greatly appreciate you and your staff also. This has been such a major change in Dad’s life with Mom passing away and moving out of his home of 42 years and through the kindness and friendliness of everyone at Villa Rose, Dad has made the transition much better than I would’ve ever thought.”


“My wife and I came to Villa Rose about three years ago. I wanted to get away from all the chores at home, especially the cooking. I’m glad to have three meals-a-day that I don’t have to fix.”


“If your children think you need some assistance, it might be time to make a move. At Villa Rose, you have everything you need: services, convenience, and friendship. It’s like living on a cruise ship! My kids and I are glad I chose to make Villa Rose my home.”


“I’ve worked (for BJC) at Villa Rose for over 18 years, and I’ve met a lot of wonderful, wise people. This is not just a job, the residents and staff care about each other…we’re a family.”


“Moving to Villa Rose has made me very happy. I love it, and I’m so at home here. I’m not lonely anymore.”


“I get along really well at Villa Rose; it was a good move for me. I enjoy attending the parties, playing bingo and playing Wii bowling. I think it’s important to have something to do—to keep busy.”


“I am very impressed with the care and concern of the staff, the appearance of the facility, the activities provided and the restaurant-like setting of the dining room. My parents think living at Villa Rose is like being on vacation.”


“It’s really comfortable at Villa Rose. I’ve made friends that I enjoy. It’s home…more like where I lived before than I ever thought it would be.”


“Just wanted you to know that you and your staff truly do such a wonderful job helping the residents feel ‘at home’ and cared about. I am so thankful that my dad is at Villa Rose! Thank you for all that you do.”
