About National Shut-In Visitation Day
February 11th is National Shut-In Visitation Day.
On this day, you can positively impact someone's life by visiting someone who is shut-in.
A shut-in person is someone who is confined to their home or a specific area for an extended period of time. This can be due to a variety of reasons such as illness, disability, or age-related limitations. Shut-ins may have difficulty leaving their home and may rely on family members, friends, or caregivers for assistance with basic needs. They may also experience social isolation and loneliness as a result of their confinement.
It is important for people who are shut-ins to have access to support, such as regular visits from friends or family, phone or internet access, and assistance with shopping or other errands.
