Tennessee is encouraging nursing homes to apply for funding to help facilitate in-person visitation.
Tennessee Department of Health officials said up to $3,000 is available to nursing homes through Civil Money Penalty Reinvestment funds.
This money can be used to provide in-person visitation aids, installations, materials and shipping costs.
Another $3,000 is available to nursing homes to provide nursing home residents with adaptive technologies and accessories. This is through the CMP TDH program which can be found here.
Applications for the CMP Program are due Nov. 6.
