Joint Parliamentary Committee for Human Rights – Draft Emergency Legislation

Family members are not “just” visitors, they offer an essential component of care that has been removed during the pandemic. No matter how wonderful care staff are they cannot provide the emotional support that can only come from a family member, as we are the eyes, ears, voices and memories of our loved ones.
