VIDEO: How to Stay Connected With Loved Ones in Care Facilities During COVID-19 Pandemic
Amy Boulware, Care Manager for Elder Law and Special Needs Planning at Chambliss, speaks on behalf of the entire Estate Planning team to let clients know the firm is thinking about them and their loved ones. Throughout the pandemic, many of us have not been able to physically connect with loved ones living in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior living developments, and other vulnerable areas. While we may be far apart in distance, there are still ways we can stay virtually and emotionally connected. Watch this video for some of Amy’s tips on what you can be doing while a loved one is living away from you. Some ideas include mailing a card or package, reading a book together on a voice or video call, engaging with the staff, or calling when you can – even if it’s just for a few minutes so they can hear your voice. Chambliss is advising clients on a wide range of matters from elder care and long-term care planning to family business planning to wills and advance directives for health care.
