“I found McCrite, and when I came here I fell in love with the place, it was so beautiful. I was delighted when I found out how many social activities they had. I take part in almost all of them!”

Dear families and friends,
As our country experiences the unprecedented situation that has arisen with the Coronavirus pandemic, our cities, as well as entire states, have taken the necessary steps to further protect their residents.
Effective Tuesday, March 24th at 12:01 am, Kansas City, MO, as well as surrounding areas, are officially under a “Stay Home” order through April 24, 2020. This effects our Briarcliff Community.
Effective Thursday, March 26th at 12:01 am, Topeka, KS, will be under a “Stay Home” order as well. This order will last for 30 days. This effects our McCrite Plaza Topeka community.
Put in place by the Health Departments and local governments, these orders allow for only essential businesses to operate. McCrite Plaza is an essential business.
McCrite Plaza offers continuing care for seniors at both of our locations. With lifestyles including independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing care, we take our direction from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Last week, we instructed all non-essential staff to work from home and escalated our restricted visitor policy.
No one is allowed on campus except essential staff and authorized medical personnel as instructed by the White House, the CDC, and CMS.
Our amazing front-line staff continues to provide the necessary services for our residents to live safe and healthy lives.
We understand how terribly difficult this is for our residents and their families and are continuing to develop creative ways to encourage and facilitate meaningful interaction with residents in every lifestyle we offer.
We are here for them and we are here for you. Please reach out to us at with any questions you may have. We are all in this together.
