Dear Family Members and Friends,


The Care Center at Sunset Lake remains committed to protecting residents and staff from COVID-19.  We have made it a priority to keep our residents, families and staff informed of all of our efforts to ensure the safety and health of everyone living and working at The Care Center during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

One (1) staff member has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last week.  There continues to be no (0) confirmed COVID-19 cases among residents.  Currently, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) requires testing of all residents in the facility every 3-7 days for 14 days following a positive case in the facility, and testing staff two (2) times a week.

Please immediately contact the Director of Nursing, Susan Southerton, 845-513-2124; or the Assistant Director of Nursing, Cynthia Hathaway, 845-513-2147, if you would like your loved one to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.  The 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccination for those who have received their first dose will be on Tuesday, January 19th. 

A message from Activities: “This week we continue to do activities on the units. We opened up the second floor dining room to residents for activities on Monday. Each unit has an assigned day and the residents enjoy getting time off their units. For Happy Hour on Friday the residents will be enjoying ice cream sundaes.”

We will continue to keep you informed of the status of the health and well-being of the Care Center at Sunset Lake residents and staff throughout this public health crisis.  We will continue weekly updates for all residents’ families and staff, and will notify resident and families individually of personal health information.

Should you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Nursing Home Administrator or the Director of Nursing.
