An Italian nursing home has established a “hugging room” that allows its residents to meet their family members without worrying about infection with the emerging corona virus.
In order to preserve the health of its residents or give them the possibility to meet their families completely safely after months of isolation due to the coronavirus emergency in the country, the Domenico Sartor nursing home in Treviso province devised a way to allow visitors to be received again, by building structures of glass and aluminum called “Emozioni senza confine” Emotions without limits. ”
The building, which opened on October 26, consists of 12 stations, each designated by glass panels and equipped with soft-made plastic gloves attached to the wall that allow physical contact between visitors and the guests of the nursing home, according to the Italian website Van Page.
To facilitate communication between the elderly and their family members, there are headphones and microphones, so inmates can speak with their visitors freely, and also touch each other without worry or fear.
Also in the center of the room there is an LED wall (large TV screen) through which comfortable pictures of art, nature and family environments are displayed.
This technology also allows video clips made by family members to be broadcast to their relatives who are guests of the care home, and an ozone sterilization system is also designed to keep the place clean and safe from the risk of coronavirus infection.
The idea of ”hugging room” came from the lack of physical and visual contact between elderly care home inmates and their family members as a result of the coronavirus emergency, which led to a cognitive and behavioral deterioration among many of them.
It is noteworthy that the Italian Ministry of Health announced, on Sunday, that 32,616 new cases of the emerging corona virus were recorded, in addition to the occurrence of 331 deaths related to “Covid-19”.
