After 7 long months, Cabrini of Westchester is able to reunite family members with their loved ones in person! In order to keep the residents safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, very strict guidelines from the New York State Department of Health have been in place since March. Visiting began on Monday, October 26th and it was a joy to witness the smiles and happy tears that were shared.
Each visit is by appointment only and takes place in Cabrini of Westchester’s lobby. All visitors must provide a negative COVID test and wear a mask at all times. Even though a six foot social distance is in place between family and residents, the feeling of love is obvious and almost tangible during each visit.
“The hardest part is not being able to give my mom a hug,” said Fran Pellegrini, daughter of resident, Louise Carbone. “But, I’m so happy to see her in person. She looks wonderful!”
After many months of uncertainty, it is so heart-warming to see happy memories being made once again!
