Exciting things are coming to Jones-Harrison

2021 is the year of hope and new beginnings. To start off this month, we had the pleasure of hosting Gov. Tim Walz. He visited Jones-Harrison to discuss COVID-19 and how Minnesota senior homes are seeing cases dramatically decline.

With this, residents can be creative, interact with people outside Jones-Harrison, and it gives them a sense of purpose. Stay connected with us to learn how residents are enjoying our virtual arts programs and other projects at Jones-Harrison!
