Dear Residents, Family, Visitors and Friends:
After careful consideration, Community Wellness Partners has decided to close Katherine Luther Residential Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center as well as the Lutheran Home of Central New York (LutheranCare) and Presbyterian Home for Central New York & Presbyterian Residential Community to all outside visitors. We are cancelling all non-critical medical appointments and all travelling entertainment.
We would like to stress that we ARE NOT experiencing any Flu or COVID-19 outbreaks or cases at this time. Our goal is to keep our residents safe and healthy and we have taken these measures in order to ensure we are protecting our residents from any potential exposure or risk.
We understand how difficult this decision is and the impact it will have on you and your loved one. We will have two laptop computers available on each campus that will allow the opportunity to Skype with your loved one. In addition, we will also have one IPad on each campus for the ability to Facetime with your loved one. While our first priority is to keep our residents healthy and safe, we also want to prioritize their relationships with each of you.
We will do our best to communicate to families as information is made available to us by the Department of Health. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding of this situation. For any questions or concerns, please contact Lenora D’Apice, Vice President of Development, Marketing and Public Relations at 315-725-6277.
