Note to United Helpers
Dear Laura, Jennifer and Rene,
I want to thank you for your amazing prescience in starting our quarantine so early. What a great decision!! I always feel so safe here and this occasion has added greatly to that. I remember during one of my first jobs out of the U of R, I was working in Boston and riding the bus. I would often see “little old ladies” riding the bus alone and thinking: I never want to be in that situation and thankfully, here I am! I am grateful to my husband who was VERY careful with money to the point where our daughter called him “Captain Cashflow” because whenever the kids wanted something he would say Ohhh we can’t – there’s too much cash flow!!! In any case, I thank you all for your most competent management of this place & its comfort living here. I am delighted that we can have meals brought to us. I appreciate especially your dedicated and caring staff!!
Magical Moments are taking place at Cabrini of Westchester! Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for the month of July, family members are able to make an appointment to see their loved ones through the window up close and personal, while speaking via iPads from either side of the door. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the regulations put into place by the New York State Department of Health, visitors have not been allowed to enter St. Cabrini Nursing Home since March. Although regular updates have been given to all families since the pandemic began, and many have had the opportunity to FaceTime with the residents, these Magical Moments have been so special because the residents are able to see and communicate with their loved ones in person – something they haven’t been able to do for nearly four months! The residents and families have been grateful to all the staff who make these reunions possible. We look forward to the day when these families move on from virtual hugs to actual hugs! That day can’t come soon enough!
St. Catherine of Siena Nursing & Rehabilitation Care Center resident Josephine Bonsignore recently celebrated her 102nd birthday.
Reaching that milestone was not without its challenges as the long-time Long Island resident recently recovered from a battle with COVID-19.
“I received constant updates about my mother’s condition,” said Braune. “When they moved her to another room, I was called. When she was tested, I received a call. I always knew what was happening with Mom. Everyone was wonderful!”
