Family’s plea to see dying grandfather

The inhumanity of Social Distancing applied indiscriminately.

This article from the Otago Daily Times highlights the need for logic and common sense (increasingly uncommon these days) under current circumstances. Not to mention compassion. For pity’s sake, COVID-19 or not, the guy is dying. Give him the love and dignity he deserves and the closure for his family. Martin

John Parkes is nearing the end of his life after a battle with cancer – and all he wants is for someone to hold his hand.

Now the 76-year-old’s family is making an urgent appeal for leniency and compassion, as the Covid-19 lockdown means very limited time with their father just when he needs it the most.

Aucklander Jess Parkes (20) has described the heartbreak of being told that as of today, visiting times to see her grandfather would be cut down to 15 minutes per day – by one family member only.

There is to be no physical contact and the person who comes to see him must stand at the foot of the bed.

“We all know the importance of the Covid-19 lockdown and we all really appreciate the healthcare team are doing for my grandfather.

“However, for compassionate reasons, families should be able to say goodbye to their loved ones – not just my family, but other families who are also in the same position as us.

“All we want is for him to be comfortable and to not be distressed in his final days. He doesn’t deserve to die alone.” READ MORE
