‘It’s been a long time’: Families reunited in time for Father’s Day as New Jersey allows visits to resume at senior living facilities

Sunday is the first day New Jersey has allowed outside visitation at assisted living facilities — just in time for Father’s Day. It’s a Father’s Day, unlike the rest.

“This is quite a different year,” Gary Gillmore, the president of Wiley Retirement Community, said.

Wiley Retirement Community in Marlton found out Friday it’d be able to host family’s for socially distant, 20-minute increments of in-person meetings, three-and-a-half months after closing its doors to visitors.
