America’s Seniors: Reunited And It Feels So Good

April 16, 2021

Over much of the last year, long term care residents were limited to interactions with loved ones through a window or a screen, unable to feel their touch or embrace. Now, thanks to the ongoing rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines, nursing homes and assisted living communities are safely welcoming visitors back – and residents are finally having long-awaited, safe reunions with those they care about.

Watch our new video below to experience just a few of the heartwarming reunions that America’s seniors have had with family and friends:

#GetVaccinated is a project of the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living. We cannot wait until the day all long term care communities are able to safely and happily reunite residents with their loved ones. We can make this possible by ensuring Americans of all ages continue stepping up and getting vaccinated when it is their turn.
