We have NO cases of COVID 19 in the facility.
Care continues to be provided by our highly professional staff. We still are not facing any shortages of any sort.
We are manning our resident "hotline" We are now accepting appointments for skype for the entire building. The appointments are 20 minutes long and typically during business hours. However, we can and will make exceptions if need be.
We are sponsoring a contest for all area schools. We are asking the students who are now home from school to write emails, send video or audio clips and even send cards and letters through snail mail. The snail mail may have to be quarantined for a few days. We are still awaiting guidance from NYSDOH and USPS. Emails and electronic greetings can be sent to and snail mail may be sent to "Any Resident" 1229 Trumansburg Rd Ithaca NY 14850. If a student is corresponding please include the class and school of which the student belongs.
With schools closing we are anticipating that our already stressed staffing situation may continue to become more problematic. Again we ask our families to continue to be patient with us and utilize the systems we have put in place to maintain contact. We are not seeing an end to the ban on visitors so we are asking the public at large to not forget our seniors and take five minutes to send an email.
