We did it together!  Duncaster announces over 99% vaccination rate. 

Duncaster is proud to be one of the first LifePlan Communities in Connecticut to successfully vaccinate over 99% of its residents and staff. “At Duncaster, we emphasize educating and communicating the benefits of vaccine to residents and staff. Achieving this milestone goal underscores our ongoing commitment to the safety of everyone at our community.” Said Kelly Papa, Acting President and CEO.

“When measured against State (67%) and National (57%) vaccination rates, Duncaster’s 99% rate is an accomplishment to be celebrated.” Said Ami Desai, Chief Operating Officer. According to AARP, the national goal is to get 75% of staff fully vaccinated in every senior living community. However, only 1 in 5 communities have been able to succeed.

In Connecticut, the story is more positive. According to CT Public, 78% of Connecticut residents have received one dose of vaccine and 70% are fully vaccinated. This week, personal finance website WalletHub.com released an update to its list of Safest States during COVID-19. Connecticut is now the safest state when it comes to COVID-19.

“The holidays are right around corner, and many families will be celebrating together for the first time in a long time,” Kelly Papa explained. “We encourage you to consider the wonderful benefits of our Duncaster lifestyle and the safety and security we deliver to our residents. Most of them tell me they wished they made the decision to move here sooner!”
