Family Visitation of Resident Who Is Actively Dying or Deceased   

For our families who have loved ones here who are actively dying or who have passed, we feel it is very important that they are given the opportunity to come to Menorah Park to spend precious time with their loved ones,  in order to say good-bye and to grieve, privately.  That is why Menorah Park is working very hard to ensure that families are given that valuable time.

Sadly, we are still in the midst of an active pandemic. To safely allow visitation while protecting our vulnerable population, we must follow NYSDOH  regulations which state that ONLY 2 family members are permitted to visit their loved one. Once they enter the facility, following the screening, they are to go directly to the resident’s room and remain in the room until they leave the facility.  Visitors are not permitted to be in shared spaces ( common areas, dining rooms, etc.) This is to help minimize the risk of exposure to other residents.
