It appears that the ban on visitors will remain in effect for an extended period of time. There is concern as to how this will affect our residents in the long run. We encourage our families to make every effort to maintain contact with their loved one. Many of our residents do not have family who visit on a regular basis. It is these residents who will be affected the most. It is these residents who depend on the visits of others families, volunteers, and clergy to brighten their days. We are asking the community to remember our residents. With schools now closed in Tompkins County and undoubtedly other counties will follow suit we are putting forth a challenge to our community's youth. Send cards, send letters, send silly pictures, since there is no school spend 20 minutes writing a letter to someone here at our facility. send them to Any Resident 1229 Trumansburg Road Ithaca, NY 14850
