Please sign the petition today to thank Dr. Cohen of NC DHHS and urge her to implement safe visitation in nursing homes.
Thank you for mandating testing, now let's enable safe physical and virtual visitation
Dear Secretary Cohen,
AARP NC heard from nearly 1,000 members who signed a petition calling on the NC DHHS to mandate testing in nursing homes. Thank you for taking this important step toward visitation. AARP NC now urges you to implement safe physical and virtual visitation policies to help fight the social isolation plaguing these facilities. Social isolation can lead to depression, fear, and anxiety for residents and their family members. Studies have also shown visitation reduces the odds of elder abuse. Please take action to allow for safe physical and virtual visitation today.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
