The Effects of COVID-19

One of the hardest things to take during this outbreak is the fact that some of our Nursing Home and Assisted-Living patients are inaccessible to the Hospice staff. In most cases, the hospice nurse is the only one allowed into the nursing facilities. Stress levels are high at these facilities and Legacy staff try to continue their supportive role in this new environment that has all of us wondering how the rules of engagement will change tomorrow or next week. It breaks our hearts to see the suffering both from the front line staff in these facilities and the patients. So we continue to find creative ways to help the staff deal with the COVID-19 crisis!
