COVID Updates & Resources (updated 4/20/21)
There have been several announcements during the last few days regarding the lessening of nursing home visitation restrictions. While we wait for more clarification from the NYSDOH, we will continue to offer in-person visits in our adult day auditorium. Thank you for your patience.
Visits are limited to 2 visits per resident per seven days. Multiple members of one resident’s family are not permitted to book multiple appointments.
- ALL VISITS require an appointment. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to our online scheduling application
- Inn and Jewish Home families should come directly to the Adult Day auditorium behind the building. Do not report to the main entrance or the front desk. You will be screened when you come to Adult Day.
- Maximum of two visitors allowed at a single visit – NO EXCEPTIONS

Virtual visits continue to be available from Syracuse Jewish Family Service. Please contact your assigned SJFS staff person; if you do not have an assignment, you may contact Ellen Somers, Asst. Director at email@example.com.
NOTE: SJFS will not provide virtual visits in the same week a resident’s family schedules an in-person visit.
