Surviving the Winter Storm in Texas

February 26, 2021

Millions of Texans are doing what they can to move forward after a harrowing week of devastating wintry weather, and the staff at Lutheran Sunset Ministries are no different. Two weeks ago, this scenic 32-acre campus, designed to accommodate residents at various levels of care through innovative programs and interdisciplinary activities, was reveling in being voted as the number one retirement community in Bosque County for 2020. Now, after several difficult days, the Clifton-based nursing home and assisted living community remains determined to rebound after one of the most harrowing experiences in its 65-year history.

The torrid conditions knocked out Lutheran Sunset’s electricity for six and a half hours, prompting concerns about having to evacuate residents for their safety. Heavy leaking left one building with no water. Despite the barrage from mother nature, Lutheran Sunset wasted no time in beginning repairs. Power was eventually restored, and the community is confident it will “right the ship” in no time.

Lutheran Sunset Ministries is a member of Lutheran Services in America, a network of more than 300 health and human service organizations providing services in more than 1,400 communities across the United States. Together, the network makes a difference in the lives of one in 50 Americans every year.
