Nursing homes are starting to resume in-person visits for families in many states as COVID-19 restrictions ease. These visits will be different than before the pandemic, at least for some time. There may be limits on when, where and for how long you can see loved ones, and distancing rules will likely be in place.
AARP has developed some key questions to ask nursing homes, assisted living, and other long-term care facilities — and yourself — about when and how visitation might resume.
Download the 5 questions tip sheet here >>
1. What is the nursing home doing to help make it safe for visitors to come back?
2. What kinds of health checks will be required for visitors?
3. Are visits restricted by time and place?
4. What protective and social-distancing measures are in place, in accordance with federal guidelines?
5. Are you doing everything possible to minimize risks to residents?
