River Edge is committed to helping "at risk" residents during serious emergencies, for example, during a massive power outage with significant snow accumulation. However, rendering assistance requires knowing who needs help.
"At risk" residents include (but are not limited to) the homebound elderly, living alone or health care aides. Residents of any age with serious health issues, such as a child or adult on a respirator, or those who might need special medications, etc..
If you have a family member, friend, or neighbor who you believe would be “at risk" in a serious emergency,
PLEASE ENCOURAGE THEM TO CONTACT River Edge Health Nurse Arlene Faustini, at
(201) 599-6289 for inclusion on her CONFIDENTIAL list.
