Visitation halted in many Atlanta nursing homes

The country is in the middle of a national health crisis, and the nation's elderly are part of the most vulnerable population. Atlanta nursing homes are taking drastic measures to try to protect their residents, but that means that family members are not able to visit and check in on their loved ones right now. Many people are worried that their loved ones will not receive the care they planned for over the years.

Nursing home neglect and abuse are a problem throughout the country. It is just one reason why people take the time to plan in order to afford facilities they believe will provide the appropriate level of care and keep their loved ones safe. Unfortunately, right now, families cannot know form themselves their elderly family members are receiving the care they deserve.

These facilities are often overburdened as it is as the aging population needing more care than families can provide every day. Unfortunately, right now, the measures being taken by nursing homes here in Atlanta and across the country appear necessary. Even so, it can be difficult to trust that the facilities will take their safety and care seriously during this time.

Being left without in-person support from family and friends during a time like this can be a challenge. However, it is possible that this vulnerable population of residents in nursing homes will come through it if the proper precautions are taken. The planning and preparation done to enable a loved one to receive the care he or she needs could be the key to getting the nation's elderly through the current health crisis.
