‘A bright spot to the confinement’: Hamilton brothers build new tool to visit mother in nursing home (Journal-News)

Journal-News: ‘A bright spot to the confinement’: Hamilton brothers build new tool to visit mother in nursing home. “Dick Meyer, 65, and his brother, Joe, 62, former owners of Meyer Brothers and Sons construction company in Hamilton, built a Plexiglas u-shaped partition. They unloaded it off a trailer and wheeled it near the front door of Barrington Of West Chester senior living community where their mother has resided since February, right before Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine closed nursing home facilities to visitors. With more than 20 of her relatives all standing outside wearing masks, Virginia ‘Ginny’ Meyer was wheeled out of the nursing home. The contraption allowed Meyer, 95, an opportunity to be closer to many of her family members, some she hadn’t seen in months, while also having a barrier for protection from the virus.”
