County Executive Dennis Levinson is pleased to announce that the Meadowview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Northfield is now accepting appointments (as of March 17) for indoor visits with its residents.
“While we have been able to permit family members to virtually visit with their loved ones throughout the pandemic, it is not the same as being in the same room with them and seeing them in person,” he said. “This will be extremely beneficial to our residents. I commend our staff who have done their best to provide extraordinary care and attention during this difficult time, but as wonderful as they are, they cannot replace family.”
According to Levinson, virtual visits will continue but 30-minute indoor visits will also be available, and as weather permits, outdoor visits will resume. Masks will be required for indoor and outdoor visits and social distancing will be maintained, whether or not the visitor has been vaccinated. All consenting residents and staff of the facility have received their vaccinations.
“This is a first step back towards what we hope will be some normalcy for our long-term care facilities that have suffered so much,” added Levinson.
Appointments will be available Monday through Friday, 10 AM – 3:30 PM. To schedule, please visit the county website at: www.aclink.org/meadowview or call (609) 645-5955 for assistance.
Meadowview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is a 180-bed facility owned and operated by Atlantic County. It is located at 235 Dolphin Avenue in Northfield.
