Daughter gets second job at nursing home to see 87-year-old dad amid pandemic

When the coronavirus pandemic limited access to nursing homes, Lisa Racine found herself unable to see the man she calls her “hero,” her 87-year-old father.

Racine told TODAY that she was worried about dad Harold Racine’s health and isolation in his Minnesota nursing home.

“Just the thought of him getting COVID and possibly dying without anybody around him that loved him — I was panicking inside,” Racine told TODAY.
