I’M THANKFUL MY PARENTS ARE IN A NURSING HOME DURING THIS COVID-19 EMERGENCY

I’m thankful my parents are in a nursing home during this Covid-19 emergency

There is so much concern and worry around nursing homes at the moment, we came across this story in the Irish Times on Wed, 29th April 2020, and thought to share with you as it offers a special insight into one person's experience.

The story details the difficulties and concerns of an only child, looking after her two elderly parents and the positive influence the Foxrock nursing home has had on all their lives


As Fidelma tells in her own words

"When I look at my two 93-year-old parents now - cared for in a small private nursing home in Foxrock - I thank my lucky stars they are there during this Covid-19 emergency.

We are bombarded with negative stories in the media about nursing home care these days, but I feel it is important to highlight how efficient and effective infection control is in some nursing homes. I cannot imagine how I would have coped trying to keep Dad germ-free, if this was last year and I was caring for him."
