Throughout the COVID-19 health crisis, United Hebrew of New Rochelle worked around the clock to ensure the health and well-being of Westchester’s most vulnerable residents. Dedicated staff worked extra hours to provide expert and compassionate care to the 800 residents of United Hebrew’s skilled nursing, assisted living, and memory care communities on its campus in New Rochelle.
Here are just a few highlights of the amazing things happening at United Hebrew:
- To date, over 65 patients and residents have been discharged after recovering from COVID, including 85-year-old Mary Thomas. She was reunited with her daughter, Jaya Kusumalayam, who said: “United Hebrew took my mother in, when no one else would. We would like to thank them all for their leadership and selfless service. All of their compassion has made a huge difference in our lives.” This was due, in large measure, to the specialized COVID Treatment & Recovery Unit United Hebrew created to isolate and care for those suffering from the virus.
- To keep loved ones connected to their families while the campus is closed to visitors, United Hebrew purchased new iPads to enable virtual visits facilitated by staff.
- Staff adopted creative one-on-one activities to keep residents connected to activities they love to do and people they love to see. People are kept engaged physically, emotionally and socially.
- Providing compassionate care in a safe and nurturing environment was made possible by a dedicated and committed staff. To thank them for their essential work, United Hebrew and the surrounding community have provided meals, gift cards, masks, PPE, and encouraging letters of support to residents and staff.
