Nursing homes have been forced to shut their doors to visitors, but a facility in Ossining is helping its residents celebrate occasions in a special way.
Victoria Home wasn't letting COVID-19 stop its residents from feeling the love on Mother's Day. The nursing and rehabilitation facility in Ossining was doing visitations through a glass window.
The visitations started about a month ago. Visitors are screened upon arrival and must follow strict social distancing guidelines.
Victoria Home says it will continue the glass visitations throughout the week and on special occasions like Mother's Day, as well as video and phone call updates.
