When COVID-19 patients are well enough to leave the hospital but still too sick to be on their own at home, they often are discharged to rehab beds in nursing homes.

Ideastream's Marlene Harris-Taylor shares what she's learned to begin today's program.  A bit later in the program, we're going to focus on the digital divide.

Many don't have the hardware or the broadband for that.
