Criticism of the elderly home-visit times: people would have nothing to do | Wolfratshausen

It is a consequence of the Corona-pandemic: For the visitors of the Old - and nursing homes there are strict rules. Now, in Wolfratshausen criticism.

Wolfratshausen – About every third person who died in Germany in consequence of a Covid-19 infection, was resident in a retirement or nursing home. The free state of Bavaria responded with strict rules for visitors to the pandemic, the pain of the families of the seniors, however, very. A Wolfratshauser not want to read his name in the newspaper, has exemplarily studied the multi-page visit to the concept of the AWO-dementia centre in the raftsmen's town and comes to the conclusion: "With people it has to do would be nothing."

In concept, the members of the Advisory Board and the ethics Committee of the institution participated, and which are constantly being updated, there are a variety of requirements. Each visit to the AWO-dementia centre at the Paradiesweg is allowed only after an appointment, the distance control must be considered in the house and on the property, each visitor must enter in a contact list. Those who violate protection measures, for example, do not use mouth-nose mask wearing, the house threatens to ban. Rules can relate to the 75-year-old pensioner – other "to deal with and worry me". An example: The visit of a family member is not allowed to be longer than 20 minutes. "In Stadelheim, a study may receive inmate 30 minutes visit", has researched the Senior.

"A remand detainee, a 30 minutes visit to receive"

may In the eyes of the wolfrat Hauser, the whole Procedure is "simply misleading". According to his estimates, the one side of the coin, the "quality of life is the hygiene, the protection of" the other. Due to the General reduction of infection (in the district of the authority was to pay according to the Circle since the 28. May only a new Corona case) would have to join the strict visiting rules to be questioned.

"you can believe me: I am everything else than happy," says facility Manager Anke Bimschas. The Motto "keep your distance", this applies in pandemic times, the philosophy of AWO-dementia centre completely on the head. But: The specialisation of people with dementia presupposes, in view of the Coronavirus, a special in-house risk assessment. Many residents were not able to find all the infection control rules and measures solely responsible to comply with, so Bimschas. That's why the rule was factory specified for the most part by the Bavarian Ministry of the interior, so closely and the staff didn't stop to check least of all, the compliance with the visiting rules consistently.

"Stuck in a Dilemma, we can't resolve"

"We are in a Dilemma we cannot resolve," says Bimschas. She has a great understanding for the Worries and sometimes despair of the people, the need to limit the Corona-crisis, the personal contact to members in retirement or nursing homes. "But the highest commandment, the protection of our residents and staff," emphasizes the Director. "No one wants to break out of a senior citizens' facility in the Corona."

For the accompaniment of the Dying, exceptions are defined, clear Bimschas. A time restriction of visiting time there, with the relatives would be taken in addition to individual agreements – even the Stay in the facility was on Paradiesweg possible.

Old, lonely and dying people would feel the current Isolation as a "deprivation of liberty", the care expert Claus Fussek in a recent Interview with our newspaper. "In the Arm and taken to be, conversations, a friendly word, go to fresh air is often the last thing they have on quality of life." Nurses are not likely to understand his statements miss: "you will suffer, Yes, many of whom were themselves under this Situation," the 67-Year-old, who comes from Lenggries. "For the company, it is now a challenge, creative solutions for more relaxations in this area to find it."

"There is definitely not an isolation tendency,"

Anke Bimaschas hopes that timely, rapid tests are available, the result of "within 20 minutes" can be selected. This could open up "new spaces" in terms of the visitor concept. "We sit together, but now every day and discuss ideas." Ideas submitted to the Director of the AWO-dementia centre and her Team, also from the circle of relatives below. "Our residents were, and are, but not alone," she says, "there is definitely no isolation tendency." This had not been confirmed recently by members of the residents, "with which we can make phone calls in these times, very much". cce
