Essential caregiver visitors provide emotional support to help a resident deal with a difficult transition or loss, upsettingevent, making major medical decisions, needs cueing to eat and drink, stops speaking, or end-of-life. Essential caregiver visitors may be allowed entry into facilities on a limited basis for these specific purposes. The provider must allow at a minimum in-person visitation for at least 2-hours daily under these circumstances.  At Weinberg Village the visitation will be between 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Weinberg Village may make exceptions to the 2-hour visitation on a case by case basis for end-of-life residents. These exceptions will be discussed and agreed upon in writing by the facility’s designee and the resident’s responsible party.
