In This Together ... Separately

Wednesday, April 15, 2020
As the COVID-19 response has overtaken the world in recent weeks, itís a time that can be especially hard on some of the most vulnerable in our society. To keep residents safe, all long-term care and assisted living facilities have had to severely limit their visitor policies. That hasnít kept the connections from happening, such as Hershel Barger (left) getting a visit from grandson Clint Witt (right) and great-grandsons Cayden, Blake and Brody via phone and through the window at his room at The Waters of Greencastle. Bargerís moment of connection with his family is one of many that could be told for local residents. The Friday, April 17 edition of Senior Life Odyssey will highlight the way that several Putnam County facilities are maintaining connections for their residents. A copy will be inserted in each Friday edition of the Banner Graphic.

  • How great for Mr. Barger to get special visitors! What a wonderful family and moment shared for all!
