Glad to see the families back

Specializes in Mental health, substance abuse, geriatrics, PCU. Has 14 years experience.

At my facility (LTC) we began allowing visitation from families/friends a few weeks ago. Our residents had gone over 1 year without physical contact with their families, spouses, friends which had devastating consequences. 

Sure, we all know how "interesting" and down right abusive some families can be, but this past year has been so hard on our residents without them, their families are a welcome sight.
