The Sussex County Homestead has been awarded a $25,000.00 Healthcare Facility Emergency Preparedness Grant by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services.  This grant will provide necessary funding for the purchase of communication and technological equipment.  The Homestead staff will receive the education and training needed to utilize this equipment to enhance the Homestead’s preparedness to communicate in the event of an emergency, while maintaining routine operations at the nursing home.
