Italy introduces mobile 'cuddle room' to retirement homes

Deprived of physical contact because of Covid, residents of retirement homes in an Italian province are offered an original solution: an inflatable and mobile "cuddle room" where they can hug their loved ones in complete safety. The initiative was started in the province of Avellino, not far from Naples, thanks to a consortium specialised in social services, and since Christmas the "cuddle room" has been operational and has been travelling throughout the province, stopping for a few days in each retirement home. from the cuddle room in Avellino
