NICK EICHER, HOST: New safety measures to limit coronavirus spread began in nursing homes—the elderly being among the most vulnerable.
That didn’t stop a man from paying a safe and healthy visit to his 80-year-old mother in a nursing home.
Charley Adams didn’t break the law or put nursing home residents at risk. We’ll explain how, but I’ll start first with why.
For Adams, it’s typical for him to take her out twice a week, and that’s something she really came to miss.
So Adams figured out a way to visit his mom using a tool he uses every day as an arborist: a bucket truck.
The bucket that lifts him up into the trees allowed him to reach the third floor of her nursing home.
Adams, of course, positioned the bucket at least 6 feet away from his mother’s open window, and so they resumed their visits.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
