For nursing home residents and their families, the pandemic has made the 2020 election personal – NBC News

Rose Konecky has been able to see her 80-year-old father only once since March, when his assisted living facility near Fort Worth, Texas, stopped regular visits because of the coronavirus pandemic. Her father, who has Alzheimer’s disease, can’t understand why his family has stopped coming to see him. “He doesn’t remember — all he knows is that we really don’t come and visit.

Aaliyah* faced a lot of pressure and professional oversight working in an Extendicare long-term care home in the Toronto area over the past two years, but what she saw during the COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t compare. Amidst growing COVID-19 cases in April, she describes a lack of communication from management, inadequate training for frontline workers, some isolated patients missing meals, and slings being used across bedroom doors to prevent patients from wandering – there were even talks of sedating patients to control their movements. One moment stood out to her as being particularly disturbing. “We were at our peak and didn’t want any more positive [COVID-19] results coming up, because once that positive comes up, you’re in outbreak for another two weeks,” Aaliyah told Yahoo Finance Canada.…
