Nursing home residents stage heartbreaking
protest outside facility: ‘Rather die from COVID
than loneliness’ By: Sarah Taylor

My brother, Phil Fornaci an attorney in DC shares my fears for elderly people in nursing homes. Though Covid is a concern, we both predicted the negative effects of the “lock down” on seniors in nursing facilities. The sad article below poignantly confirms our fears.

Residents of a long-term nursing and rehabilitation facility in Colorado organized a protest against the state’s COVID-19 restrictions on Thursday.

What are the details?

According to KCNC-TV, the protest took place at Fairacres Manor in Greeley.

The station reported that many of the facility’s residents — many of them in wheelchairs — stood outside of the facility and held signs that read “Rather die from COVID than loneliness,” “Give us freedom,” “Prisoners in our own home,” and more.

In a statement, Ben Gonzales — assistant administrator at the facility — said that Fairacres’ residents are not happy.
