My grandmother, age 92, is finally allowed visitors now but under ridiculous restrictions . I cannot go in her room (which is a single, private room) Visits are once every 2 weeks for 30 minutes. What are the metrics and best practices? Why does every facility have their own rules?

Why aren’t the numbers on staff who chose not to get the vaccine or who become infected not made public?

Why are families shut out and restricted in the name of “safety “ and held to a different double standard?

Where are the civil rights of elderly residents and families? It is easier to visit a prison system than my grandmother.

Our biggest public health crisis now is isolation of the elderly who are all but forgotten.

My father passed away in July of 2020 in a nursing home. I had last hugged him in February due to pandemic restrictions at nursing home and assisted living before that. Phone calls didn’t work since he was very hard of hearing even w hearing aid. I know that he gave up after surgery - too much to bear without us. Please let families have contact with their loved ones in nursing homes.

I believe our loved ones need to be in TOUCH with their family as their journey come to its end. No once knows what that time frame maybe but It behoves us to be aware and stand by with love prayer and gentility . As the children and loved ones we owe them this respect and devotion
No one should have to die alone .

The elderly need to see their families. As long as they wear a mask and pass the screening let them see their loved ones.

The mental health of the residents in nursing homes are at stake here. They’re feeling alone and are in need of their loved ones.
