Global News published this video item, entitled “Saying goodbye to a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic” – below is their description.
COVID-19 has affected just about every part of our lives and it can have a profound effect on death. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, a palliative care home in Quebec was forced to wheel a patient out into the cold. The reason? So she could see her loved ones one last time.
It’s the psychological, emotional and physical support that palliative care patients and their families often have to go without.
“We worry about the children and grandchildren who can’t come in to visit because a lot of the work we do is legacy projects,” said Manuella Piovesan, clinical care director at the West Island Palliative Care Residence (WIPCR).
“We would love to have families in the room praying together, having their favourite songs played in their final moments. That can be really, really difficult with COVID when we’re limiting the number of people in the room.”
Mike Armstrong reports.
