Dear Family members,
Here we are at the end of another week and I am happy to say that we are closer to being able to have family visits. We have almost completed the very extensive New York Forward Safety Plan. Once we submit it, we must then wait for approval of the plan by the Health Department. Our plan is to submit by the middle or end of next week.
The plan must include among other things;
We included the “Visitors Expectations Fact Sheet” with our last letter and will continue to provide you with a copy each week. When visitations begin the State Department of Health has required us to collect the fact sheet from each family member signed as a proof that you have read and understand the requirements. Once you have read and signed it, you can mail, fax or bring them with you when it’s time for your visit. Our fax number is 347-329-1802.
As a reminder:
Our activity dept. continues to do an excellent job keeping our Residents busy and occupied. I’m sure we’ll remember these months of isolation and the demands made on everyone for a very long time. Despite the hardships we are grateful for the fact that we have had no deaths and only one case of the virus among the Residents. We will continue to make the best of the situation and count on you to help us adhere to the State’s demands as we draw closer to opening our doors to visitors. Feel free to call us if you have any questions or concerns at 347-329-1800. Have a great weekend!
Sr. Gertrude Mary lsp

Thank you so much for the many donations, prayers and gestures of kindness being shown Jeanne Jugan Residence during this time of worldwide crisis.
Because we are unable to continue visiting local parishes and businesses to ask for monetary support and gifts in kind, our need is greater than usual.
We are in need of anti-bacterial hand wipes, paper goods, plasticware and napkins as well as monetary donations to meet out ordinary and increased expenses at this time.
We are eternally grateful for your most generous support of our mission. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have reached out to us, as well as all the health care workers who are so generously caring for the sick, beginning with our own staff members.
We Little Sisters and our elderly Residents are praying for all of you and for an end to this scourge.
