Welcome to our CaringBridge website. The main reason for establishing this site is for folks who want to sign up to visit Heidy. Heidy currently has a tracheostomy and cannot use her voice. However, when you visit in person, she communicates fairly well. She is beginning to be able to text again, so she can type difficult words. In-person visits are the best way to help Heidy keep her spirits up as she faces a very long and difficult recovery.
The Drake Center is located in Cincinnati. Visiting hours are from 10 to 7. A maximum of two people can visit per day, which is why it's important to schedule your visit through this site.
Visitors should be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. If you are unable to be vaccinated or choosing not to be vaccinated, please consider sending Heidy a card rather than visiting. All visitors must wear masks when inside the Drake Center. To schedule a visit, click on the Planner.
We especially need your help when family members will be out of town and unable to visit. Heidy's mother and stepfather will be away from June 24 through 27, so that might be a great time to visit.
We will also use this site to to keep family and friends updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
