WELLINGTON — With the lockdown of nursing homes due to COVID-19, people have gone as long as seven months without hugging their loved ones in long-term care facilities. Rivercross Hospice in Wellington has found a way for people to safely embrace. It’s called the “cuddle curtain.” The curtain is a plastic sheet with four holes—two on each side for people on opposite sides of the curtain to put their arms through. There are plastic sleeves covering the arms and participants wear plastic gloves when using the curtain. The main purpose is for families to be able to see their loved ones and to be able to hug them, according to Gina Wallace, LPN with Rivercross Hospice. The curtain is cleaned and sanitized before and after each use. (Salina Journal)
