Wallingford’s Gaylord Specialty Healthcare center has done 1,000 ‘window visits’ since the start of the pandemic

New Haven

WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — An elderly man at Wallingford’s Gaylord Specialty Healthcare received a special visit thanks to the center’s “window visits” initiative.

It’s tough to be in a rehab facility during the holidays — especially with COVID-19 restricting visitors. But thanks to the center’s “window visits,” families can be reunited in a way.

Gaylord Specialty Healthcare resident Gregory Whitehouse got to see his children, grandkids, and brother through the window in Wallingford Tuesday. The 61-year-old tested positive for COVID in November. A week later, he ended up paralyzed due to a rare condition.

Whitehouse is devoted family man, so this visit through the glass meant the world to him.
