I love this! What a blessing for the residents and their families. I am sure that everyone's mental health is better. It seems as if the facility is taking the right precautions.

What a festive room! I love that people get to see each other


I wonder how they sanitize against COVID in the air? I hope the precautions include a lot of time between visitors and open doors. Otherwise we potentially have COVID sitting there and the same problems with spread that outdoor igloo dining has. Someone infected visiting family leaves and a new visitor comes and sits in the infected air. (I'm guessing the residents have a safety bubble of sorts)

That is a great idea and so awesome of the home to do that. It should help a lot of people mentally to be able to see their loved ones. My friend saw her grandmother frequently in the summer through the window.

My husband's grandmother's home has put in separate ventilation for the room and a separate entrance both for the residents and visitors. It is closed from the other room and they have microphones to talk. A separate person cleans the visitation room between each visit and the staff cleans the other room where the residents are. It closes whenever a staff member or resident tests positive and stays closed for 14 days. There is always risk as the staff doesn't sleep there and can't isolate.

We liked the outdoor set-up better, though.

I am happy they are offering these poor people needed visits from family.

DD's group home

We have been going to see DD at her group home, and we sit on the patio where there is a picnic table. We've only been able to do that when the weather is nice. They called today, and said we could see her in the garage at the sheltered workshop as long as we wear masks and leave the door open. They will have space heaters in there so it will be warmer.

I would love that! We don't have any options right now to see our parents. During the summer and fall we could see them outside.

We have a friend who is in a rehab facility and they have set up something very similar to this. A good friend and I went to visit her. She sat on the inside with a window open and we sat on the outside (patio) with an 8 foot barrier between us. I think this is a genius idea!
