COVID-19 Senior Living Concerns
If you have a loved one in a South Florida nursing home or senior living facility it's hard not to worry. And with the explosion of coronavirus cases the worry is even greater especially with the novisitors policy now in place.
Across our nation these facilities have been devastated by COVID which begs the question Are residents still getting proper care? You can't visit group activities are canceled and group mealtime is banned so how can anyone be sure all these vulnerable people are being taken care of? We trust everyone is working hard to protect residents but there are legitimate concerns like increased risk of injury or fall while separated from others choking as a result of eating in isolation infections due to residents not being bathed or repositioned properly.
If your loved one is in a nursing home or senior living community make sure administrators have created and implemented an emergency preparedness plan instituted enhanced infection control protocol secured proper supplies and equipment and ensured staff is taking appropriate care of residents despite their own fears about COVID.
