At The Villa at Florham Park we have altered the way we are providing resident activities, delivering meals, and connecting with families.
Due to social distancing, we have asked all residents to avoid direct physical contact with other residents. We recommend wearing a mask and following consistent handwashing and disinfecting of surfaces. To that end, we have initiated alternative ways of delivering engaging activities to our residents.
We have been addressing creative ways to deliver activities to our residents. We have partnered with Felician University faculty and students to offer a Pen Pals program. For residents interested in participating, Felician volunteers are reaching out via FaceTime and email, and sharing short stories, poems, and daily Lent scriptures. They have also shared their campus radio show with our residents. In addition, our Community Enrichment team has been using video to celebrate resident birthdays and entertain with songs, volunteers to assemble activity packets, and iPads to engage residents with games through apps.
The Villa’s dining room has been closed to sit down service to eliminate group dining and reduce contact that residents have with one another. We have implemented meal delivery directly to residents’ rooms.
Communicating with Families
Visitation is available on a limited basis, and takes place outdoors. Please call 973-867-1500 to schedule a visit. We also encourage you to communicate with residents in other ways such as the telephone, video chat, e-mail, or social media.
We have a limited number of devices that can assist our residents and have encouraged them to use the devices to FaceTime and connect with families. We have also had an outpouring of volunteers who write letters and call our residents who might not have family or friends to speak with.
