It’s been three weeks since Mrs. Bobbie has been able to visit her daughter, Carolyn in the Honey Grove Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
Since the elderly and autoimmune compromised are most vulnerable to the coronavirus, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers across the country have closed their doors to visitors to protect their residents.
The decision, while much needed, has left families unable to visit their loves ones. However, many are coming up with creative ways to continue to see and show their loved ones they are there for them.
“Mrs. Bobbie would visit regularly every week and bring Carolyn special things that she likes to eat and read,” said social worker Renae Stone.
Stone said that Mrs. Bobbie is an amazing mother who doesn’t care if there is rain, sleet or snow, she is coming to see her baby girl.
And she certainly wasn’t going to let COVID-19 stop her from seeing her daughter’s smile.
“When Mrs. Bobbie came this particular day, Carolyn was up in her chair after a game of bingo. They were so excited to see one another through the glass door,” said Stone.
