The danger posed by COVID-19 weighs on everyone’s minds, although each of us can’t help but worry about our loved ones. And we worry about them, too. Many of Florida’s elderly live full- or part-time at assisted living or other long-term care facilities. While they may be safe from the dangers of coronavirus, a host of other issues like depression and loneliness become even more prevalent despite our staff’s best efforts. Our residents at Angels Senior Living have stayed strong without their families at their sides, but we believe it’s time to safely reunite you.

The state of Florida moved quickly to ban visitation to assisted living facilities and nursing homes because of the dangers posed by the coronavirus pandemic. And for months, the state of Florida has mentioned providing guidelines on assisted living visitation, but very little concrete guidance has appeared. We’ve seen feel-good stories about the heroic acts of people like Mary Daniel, who took a job at a nursing home so she could continue to see her husband. Several other states have since acted on visitation guidelines, but Florida has not.

This has to change. Our staff are ready to face this challenge and will have everything they need to help you see your loved ones, and keep everyone safe. We want to encourage the state to move just as decisively towards providing guidelines on how to keep our communities safe while giving our residents a way to spend time with their families. There are a few ways you can help. We want to give you some resources on what you can do to get back with your loved ones safely, sooner.

Sign a petition asking the state of Florida to provide guidance on visitation to assisted living facilities

The first way you can help us out is by making your voice heard. We’ve started a petition on change.org urging the state of Florida to provide guidelines for families to visit assisted living facilities. An example of these guidelines might include:

  • Visits between family members and residents can take place if both parties wear full personal protective equipment (PPE) provided by the community, including masks, gloves, gowns, and face shields to prevent any potential spread of infection
  • Family members can visit residents if they provide proof of a positive COVID-19 antibody test, indicating they’ve come in contact with the virus previously and are no longer infected, or at least two recent negative COVID-19 test results
  • Family members can visit residents if visitation occurs outdoors with a glass partition separating family members from residents

These are just a few examples of what guidelines for safe visitation could look like. By signing our petition, you can endorse this request and help us return our residents to their loved ones.

Send a letter to the Florida Governor’s Office about assisted living visitation using this letter as a template to get started

You can also write a letter to the Florida Governor’s Office requesting action on family visitation. Here’s a template to get you started. This template includes a brief overview of some of the options above, in addition to mentioning the effects prolonged isolation can have on residents.

Please save the Word document to your computer, enter your own information where needed, and save as a Word document or PDF. You can send this document directly to the Office of Governor Ron DeSantis at https://www.flgov.com/email-the-governor/, or print and mail a copy to:

You don’t have to stop there. Get in touch with the media or your local and state representatives to encourage the state to take meaningful action on restoring visitation.
