Long term care facilities -- specifically nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living residences -- take care of some of the most vulnerable populations when it comes to COVID-19. Many in these facilities are frail with most having chronic medical conditions. Now, couple this with the closeness of how the residents live and the daily battle to keep infection control procedures in place since many residents are unable to practice these processes on their own given their limitations, and it becomes apparent just how susceptible both residents and staff are to a prolific infection like COVID-19.
The staff of Connelly Law Offices would like to thank all those who have been there to help our seniors.
