In Our Kehilla
Bikur Cholim
As many of you know, as part of Netivot’s Shalom’s commitment to chesed and volunteerism, we have started a bikur cholim program, through which members and their families are encouraged to visit patients at Care One on Shabbat afternoons (or other times during the week, if that’s more convenient for you).
Also, if you know of anyone within our community who is ill or home bound and would like visitors, please be in touch with Richard Dukas; richard@dukaspr.com; 201/417-7730.
A sign-up spreadsheet is linked here.  The process is pretty simple:
  • Sign up for one or more Shabbat afternoon per month.  You can sign-up for as many or as few as you like.  Please note how many people from your family are likely to attend.
  • Try to coordinate with any other families/people who have signed up for a particular week before you go.  Please list your contact info on the sign-up sheet so you can easily be in touch with others who may have signed up for the same Shabbat as you.
  • When you arrive at Care One, stop at the front desk for a list of the patients who would like to be visited.
  • Before entering a patient’s room, knock on the door gently (if opened) and peek your head in to see if they are there.  If so, simply ask, “Would you like visitors.” (If the door is closed, assume they want privacy.)
  • If “yes,” to the above, we recommend that you sit with the patient for about 10-15 minutes (depending on their health condition, interest, etc.).
  • Try to steer the conversation away from their health conditions, if possible, but feel to discuss it with them, if they like. 
  • Good topics of conversation are:  “Jewish geography,”  the parsha, life in Teaneck, questions about their family and life when they’re not at Care One, “where they were raised?” etc.
  • In total, a bikur cholim visit to Care One should take 60-75 minutes.
If you have any questions or comments, please be directly in touch with Richard Dukas.  Thank you.
