In partnership with CVS Pharmacy, St. Catherine’s Village began administering the COVID-19 vaccine to residents at the all-inclusive Life Plan Community on January 21, 2021.
“We are so grateful, and excited, to take this extremely important step to protect our residents and combat the Coronavirus,” said Felichia Fields, assistant executive director of the Madison, Mississippi senior living community.
Fields noted that during the pandemic—which was particularly devastating for the elderly—seniors were hesitant to move to independent or assisted living, often opting to stay in their current homes, even if that meant living alone. She hopes that these vaccinations help bring peace of mind to seniors and their loved ones so they feel more comfortable making the decision to move and find the care they need.
The CVS team is on-site at St. Catherine’s Village as part of the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-term Care Program, which was created by the CDC to facilitate safe vaccinations and provide end-to-end management of the process. In addition to administering vaccines to residents and staff, CVS is:
- scheduling and coordinating on-site clinic dates;
- providing vaccines and associated supplies;
- ensuring cold chain management for the vaccine; and
- reporting required vaccination data to the local, state/territorial, and federal jurisdictions within 72 hours of administering each dose.
As Madison’s preeminent all-inclusive Life Plan Community, St. Catherine’s Village provides the right care at the right time for those in their retirement years. The private, gated community boasts a caring staff, person-centered care, and a mission-focused environment. Adults age 62 and older are welcome and encouraged to enjoy fullness of life, health and faith.
St. Catherine’s Village offers independent living in apartments and garden homes, assisted living in Marian Hall, memory care in Campbell Cove and Hughes Center, and skilled nursing in Siena Center and the new Tuscany building.
The all-inclusive Life Plan Community was the first in Mississippi to earn accreditation by CARF-CCAC. This “commitment to excellence” seal signifies that the campus exceeds the standards established by the only international accrediting body for CCRCs.

St. Catherine’s Village will be hosting an Alzheimer’s/Dementia Caregiver Support Group on January 29th @ 12pm.
Dr. Timothy Coker will be speaking on “Music and the Mind: A Look at Current Research in Music and Neuroscience.”
Timothy Coker, emeritus professor of music at Millsaps College, taught music theory, conducting, symphonic literature, church music literature, music: as a way of knowing, and was chair of the music department for fifteen years. He conducted the Millsaps Singers and Millsaps Chamber Singers and made numerous national and international tours with these ensembles. A past member of the board of directors of Mississippi Symphony Orchestra and a former chairman of the board, Coker continues to pursue his interest in assisting concertgoers to hear better and appreciate more deeply works presented by MSO at their Bravo Series concerts. This has led him to explore how the mind and music intertwine, especially how music can be used to improve mental health and extend quality of life for persons with dementia, Parkinson’s, or Alzheimer’s. As a music educator in the public schools for twelve years, he continues to have a keen interest in advancing the cause for music education for all students at all ages. He currently is minister of music at Northminster Baptist Church in Jackson.
