Connecticut Woman Gets Creative to Visit Her Loved One in a Nursing Home

NBC Connecticut reports a Riverton woman found a creative way to say hello to her stepdad at his nursing home in Canton amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Lacey Lizzi said her stepfather Arthur has been her best friend since she was 10 and was placed in Cherry Brook Health Care Center in January.

Before the coronavirus pandemic, she visited her stepdad every day.

Among 215 nursing homes in CT, 96 have had at least one confirmed case of COVID-19.

A total of 980 nursing home residents with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 have been identified of whom 264 were hospitalized and 142 have died.

As of April 10, a total of 10,538 laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been reported among Connecticut residents. One thousand five hundred sixty-two patients are currently hospitalized. There have been 448 COVID-19-associated deaths.

Lizzi told NBC Connecticut a family friend with Sandy Brook Services provided the bucket lift and she got permission from her stepdad’s facility so she could creatively say hello to him.

She went on the bucket lift for about 10 minutes on Saturday and held up signs that said things like “hi Pops,” “hugs and kisses” and “see you soon.”

The following is an up-to-date list of every nursing home in Connecticut with residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 as of 4/8/2020:
