Facility establishes ‘hug tent’ to safely reunite residents, families

Where there’s a will, there’s a way. And long-term providers are making a way for families and other visitors to safely visit residents. 

Colorado-based nonprofit healthcare organization TRU Community Care teamed up with Hover Senior Living Community’s skilled nursing facility to create a “hug tent” that allows visitors and residents to safely see and touch each other during the pandemic. 

“It’s really good for the residents,” said Amanda Meier, a project coordinator for the organization. “I just wish everybody could find a way that they could not be so isolated, whatever it takes.”
