My 72 year old husband is in respite care home, he went into the care home 3 weeks before the virus struck and we were told 2 weeks ago that they were closing their doors to visitors, this is causing myself and my husband great distress, I can only speak to him on the phone, I have asked if they could set up something else Skype, although we did FaceTime on Mother’s Day. I totally understand that all the residents need to be kept safe, but yesterday I had a very distressed telephone conversation with my husband yesterday who repeatedly pleaded with me to go and get him, he needed me to help him, just needed me with him. He is only 72 and the other residents are well over 80. I have sent letters, cards, photos etc. but I can’t (over the phone) explain to him, so that he can understand, why I can’t visit him. We are both distressed and upset, for him he thinks he has been abandoned and for me I feel guilty and an awful person and worrying that the next time I am allowed to see him he won’t recognise me.
