Libby Znaimer is joined by Bill McCormick to share the story of his 89-year-old mother, Margaret, who recovered from the COVID-19 virus and is currently living at Markhaven Home For Seniors in Markham. She also has dementia. Her survival is quite an impressive feat considering that seniors with underlying health conditions are especially vulnerable to the virus and also because there have been a number of COVID-19-related deaths at the home she lives in.
To make matters worse, Bill says that the situation is hard for his mother to understand due to her dementia symptoms and it’s also hard for him as family members are not permitted to visit amid the virus outbreak. Bill joins us to share his story and to provide us with a slightly more positive story amid all the more grim headlines we’ve been reading in the news lately.
