‘Out of the blue!’ Surprise phone call will allow wife in nursing home to see her husband for 1st time in 110 days

Mary Daniel is keeping track of the days since her husband’s memory care center called her and said, “You can’t come back in.” It was an order from the governor for all nursing care centers in Florida: No visitors.

It has now been 110 days.

So she’s tried to comfort her husband, Steve. “We tried a window visit and he just cried,” she says. With dementia, he can’t understand why his wife comes up to his window, talks to him, and then just walks away to her car — day after day.
