We can only accommodate visits that are scheduled by calling Lee Rutkowski at 570-344-6177 ext. 1175. Lee is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. or by email:

In addition to regular activity programs, we are continuing to provide Face time/Zoom visits along with in-person patio visits.  There will be two time slots open on Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.   Because these weekend slots are very limited, we ask your understanding. We will provide this on a rotational basis and give priority to family members who have had limited opportunities to participate in our weekly visits.
