Oberschleißheim – Every Sunday came over the family in the upper schleissheimer AWO-seniorenheim, you laughed together and played “Memory”. The visits of their children Luise Schleich’s “Highlight” as the daughter of Heidi reminds Posselt.

imposed in the original restrictions, the nursing home ban on a Visit, a week later, the Bavarian infection protection regulation with a stricter visiting and prohibition of entry for care institutions came into force then.

well, it was no longer soon. The General condition of the 81-Year-old deteriorated, an on-call doctor diagnosed an edema of the lungs. In the High-Phase of the Corona pandemic brought Louise Schleich, therefore, on 21. April “because of the uncertain diagnosis” in the Schwabinger hospital where the clinic had created a Department only for the supply of Covid-19-patients. But quickly the all-clear came: “A friendly Doctor told us that our mother is not suffering from Covid-19,” recalls Heidi Posselt. However, according to the Bavarian infection protection regulation, a relocation was excluded in the senior citizens ‘ Park, Oberschleißheim for the first time. “According to our current assessment, it was during the hospitalization of their mother, a so-called inpatient stay, ( … ), whereby it was not possible for her mother to resume,” wrote Maike Hessel, consultant for elderly care of the AWO München, to explain to the children.

According to the clinic, Luise creeping back into the seniors home

may not be The Problem: in the Schwabing hospital, which is not possible with Corona-infected 81-Year-old could. “We currently have simply no place for you”, has a daughter, Heidi explained, had not seen her mother until then, five weeks.

On 27. April finally found a solution for Luise creeping: it moved to the Beautiful-day clinic for dementia in Munich, where she came again in strict quarantine. The 81-Year-old, however, it was always worse: you whine loudly, is likely to suffer you to loneliness, informed the nursing staff of the family again and again. However, “mental” treat the Suffering man “with mood-brighteners and painkillers”. The family suffered: “My mother was afraid, she was appropriate! She didn’t understand at all what is happening around them,“ says daughter Heidi Posselt.

A last farewell

Heidi Posselt and her four siblings moved in together: “We wanted to say goodbye to all of them. We would have to draw lots, which of the two of us, again, to mom into the room?“ At the end of the staff looked the other way, just a few hours later, on the Morning of the 9. May, died in Louise Schleich. Their daughter, Heidi says: “My mom is not died of Corona. She died because of Corona.“

No reproach at home and in the clinic

neither the care facility, the hospitals makes the daughter of the accusation: “This is a small good home. And the Doctors were all friendly.“ Nevertheless, it was “an absurdity, what you did to my mother”! Clearly, says Heidi Posselt, “sooner or later” would your mother die. “But since you didn’t have to endure seven weeks of Isolation!” The rules in the Bavarian infection protection law “contribute to the fact that old people die”. In particular, understanding of the threat posed by the Corona-pandemic, is therefore convinced: “you can’t deal with the Weakest members of society!”
