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. 

We had a total of four (4) staff members test positive for COVID-19 within the last week. We are happy to report that there are NO 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.

Let’s talk turkey and Thanksgiving!  We are eagerly preparing for our Thanksgiving parade. There will be inflatable costumes, a float, and Santa and his elf may even make an appearance.  Keep an eye out on our Facebook page.  On Thanksgiving Day we will be providing an extra video chat to see and talk to your family / loved one.   Residents have also been busy preparing special gift bags to be given to loved ones for the holidays.  Just a reminder, if you do not remember your Zoom (video chat) time please give a call to activities, 845-513-2119, to obtain your schedule.   

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.
