Virtual Visit Request



Requests weekend visitations must be recieved by 11:00am on Friday. All later requests will be considered for the following weekend.

VFMC embraces the importance of family support in the recovery process.

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, with the guidance of local and federal government, we have suspended in-person visitation with our patients. Instead, we are implementing virtual visitation to allow two-way video conferencing for our patients and their families.

The following conditions will determine approval of the request:

  • The person you are requesting to visit is a current patient
  • The person you are requesting to visit has conferred with his or her counselor confirming the request and agreeing to its therapeutic value
  • The person you are requesting to visit has provided consent for us to contact you via email with a scheduled time as well as directions for your virtual visitation period

Once approved, VFMC uses Skype to facilitate virtual visits.
Skype is widely available on all platforms including Windows, Mac, iPhone and iOS devices and online at web.skype.com at no cost.

To participate in a virtual visitation via Skype, you will need access to the following items:
  • A valid email account
  • A free account from skype.com
  • A phone, tablet or computer with a video camera, microphone and internet access

Valley Forge is making our best effort to support our patients and their families.

However due to limited resources during the current healthcare crisis, we cannot provide technical support for virtual visitors or guarantee a successful virtual visitation.

Online support is available from support.skype.com if needed.
