Dear Family Members and Loved Ones of Flushing House Residents,
As we monitor the Coronavirus closely each day, we are putting in new policies and procedures to best fit the needs of our residents. I am writing to update you on the latest additions to our new policies and procedures. For past updates, please browse the News section of our website.

Appointments are available on Mondays and Wednesdays between 10 AM and 4 PM. To schedule an appointment call Rochell at (347) 532-3005. Sessions are available via telephone, Skype, FaceTime and in person.
