Live Q&A: Caring for Loved Ones in Care Facilities with Emmy-winning actress Susan Lucci and AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins
How do you remain connected and support loved ones in care facilities during the global Coronavirus pandemic? Join AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins & actress Susan Lucci who will share her family’s experience during this pandemic in a special Q&A event at 1pm ET Thursday, May 21.
As each day passes, the devastating impact that the pandemic is having on Americans who live and work in nursing homes and other care facilities is becoming more and more clear. According to news reports, more than 16,000 COVID-19 deaths -- about a quarter of the national total -- have been residents and staff of long-term care facilities. This is appalling, and a persistent lack of transparency is compounding the anxiety of family members who are unable to visit their loved ones. Until recently, there was no federal requirement for nursing homes to report coronavirus outbreaks and COVID-19 deaths, making it impossible to understand the true scope of the problem and what steps need to be taken to protect residents and staff.
AARP is providing information and resources about COVID-19 to help older Granite Staters, and their families protect themselves from the virus and prevent it from spreading to others.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, older adults and individuals with chronic health conditions are at higher risk of serious illness from the coronavirus.
