Residents evicted by New Windsor senior home that flouted vax order

TOWN OF WALLKILL – The 86-bed home for seniors in New Windsor had flouted for months a state order that all of its workers be vaccinated against COVID-19, a requirement most other assisted-living homes across New York had met.

A hearing and potential penalty for the violations were looming when residents of New Windsor Country Inn got some startling news last month, delivered to them one by one. Two residents who had gotten word shared it with 85-year-old Jean Ambrosetti as they joined her at their dining table.

They had to move out. One had lived at the home for more than 20 years.

Jean Ambrosetti talks about being evicted from the New Windsor Country Inn at her new home, Braemar Living in town of Wallkill, on Friday, February 11, 2022.

“It was just devastating that they could do that to us,” Ambrosetti said on Friday, seated in a gathering room at her new assisted-living home outside of Middletown, Braemer at Wallkill. “We are in our late 80s and 90s. They gave us two weeks to leave.”
