COVID-19: What does it mean for people in ICU and for families?

Posted by Rosemary, Volunteer Mentor @rosemarya, Mar 15, 2020

Becoming ill with COVID-19 is a uniquely isolating and scary time for all of us, especially you are in the hospital or ICU. Everywhere people are being asked to practice social distancing, many ICUs and hospitals are restricting or not allowing visitors. Luckily this community is virtually open any time all the time to connect with others. If you or a loved one are in ICU right now because of COVID-19 or for any other reason, our ears and hearts are open to let you know you are not alone.

Are you in the hospital right now and want to chat with others? Is your family member in the hospital and you’re not able to visit?

Hi Becky … I pray all is well for you and your family . I have been able to talk with him more. He is improving : ). I was allowed to give him an iPad last week and I dropped some books and magazines off to him today… he still has the tracheostomy but he is speaking better than he was before. Patience is what I am learning to practice. Thank you so much for checking on us…I love all of you…you have helped me so very much during this hard time…

@mutwo I am so happy to hear from you! Your spirits seem so much lighter! It sounds like you’ve been able to see your husband. Have his daughters relented a little? See him as often as you are able—you’re his best medicine. Becky
