My center allows patients to have visitors (some centers don’t) but they must wear paper gowns to cover their street clothes while they visit with the patient. Sometimes it’s a short visit but there are also visitors who stay the entire 3 or 4 hours with the patient. They watch TV or sit and talk with the patient for most of the time. In a center in Ohio, a party of regular, full-time visitors has formed a group of their own. Rather than sit in the treatment area, they hang out in the waiting room and they make the best of their time together by becoming a little family of their own.
What’s really noteworthy about this gathering is how it is also a support group. While they enjoy each other’s company in a social context, they discuss their problems and share solutions to those problems. I’m pleased the CantonRep.com in Stark County, Ohio wrote about this.
