WV Strong: Staff at Wheeling Hospital’s Continuous Care Center

Ohio County

Today’s Better Angels are the staff at Wheeling Hospital’s Continuous Care Center. With nursing homes across the country restricting visitor access to keep our seniors safe, many families have struggled with the separation from their loved ones - so many facilities are getting creative to help residents stay in touch with them.  At Wheeling Hospital’s Continuous Care Center, staff are using technology that allow residents and their families to share special occasions and stay in touch virtually. Staff broadcast the virtual calls through a wide screen television so residents can easily see their loved ones. In addition to virtual calls, the staff are periodically calling families with updates to give them some much-needed peace of mind.
