“Remember that we are all in this together and we will weather this storm together."

This update is designed to offer you timely information regarding our campus, our policies, and our dedication to keeping our residents and staff healthy. We hope we can alleviate some of the stress and anxiety you may be feeling by assuring you that, despite this “new” normal, your loved ones continue to receive comprehensive, holistic care.

With Love From. ....
Each week we're featuring a heartfelt message from one of our residents to let family and friends know that even during this difficult time - love and hope will continue to keep us connected. A big thank you t o our fantastic activities team for supplying encouragement (and glitter) to keep our residents' creativity flowing.
Seeking Classic Movies
There’s nothing better than a bit of the ol' soft shoe or the "rat-a-tat-tat" from a gangster's gat to escape the challenging times we’re living in, especially for our residents. We are currently seeking donations of DVD (no Blu-Ray, please) and VHS copies of movies from Hollywood’s Golden Era (1920s-1960’s) for our residents' viewing. Please contact Judith Huober at 315-446-9111, x 236 or by email .
Community Resources
The current coronavirus situation has us all stressed and stretched in many ways. Do you need help from a community volunteer? Would you like to offer help to someone who needs it?

In either case, take the Jewish Federation of Central New York's survey and the team at S yracuse Jewish Family Service (SJFS) will match you with the right person to help with your need or offer. You can also reach SJFS by email or by phone at: 315-446-9111, ext. 226 or 3 15-454-2006.
