This time of COVID-19 has been a burden on everyone.  It is so important that we all abide by health care recommendations from federal, state and local health agencies to minimize the risk of the spread of the virus.  We appreciate your support and patience as we work hard to protect our residents and our team members.  Experts predict that the peak will occur in about a month and start to subside, so we are hopeful that restrictions will reduce in the near future, we will keep you informed.  In the abundance of caution and at the strong recommendation of federal and state experts we are implementing three new changes at our campuses, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.

  1. We will be providing dining in the resident’s rooms and will no longer have residents gather together to eat meals or snacks.  This will require some adjustments in timing of meals and staff assistance, but our campus teams are on it and want to ensure that residents have a pleasant and nutritious dining experience.
  2. We will be providing all life enrichment and activities on an individual basis and will no longer have residents gather together to participate in group activities.  We are focused on the quality of life of our residents and will be monitoring their needs and wishes as we move forward.
  3. All team members will be wearing surgical masks when working.  The wearing of masks is recommended for healthcare workers to minimize the potential spread of the virus by team members.

Again, we appreciate your understanding of our efforts, but if you have any concerns for your loved one, we encourage you to reach out to the campus to discuss.  Also, we have an email account dedicated to COVID-19 questions, covid@nyehealthservices.com.  You can also follow us on Facebook.
