Residential/Nursing Care Homes
I know this has been briefly answered before with the AMAs, however I feel that there needs to be a clearer ruling on the criteria surrounding care homes (residential, nursing, and specialist ones for learning disabilities/dementia/etc).
Speaking from my own experience as a healthcare worker, I would like to argue that as many people that live in a care setting are deemed vulnerable that care homes shouldn't be eligible as people not associated with those particular settings congregating outside a care home or even on the grounds of a care home could be seen as a safety risk, as well as a potential safeguarding risk.
Again, speaking from my own experience, I know thay some residents in care settings would love to have visitors and people to chat to but organising such a thing with a home manager can be a pain in the rear end due to paper work, risk assessments, and so forth. Take into account that some residents (particularly those afflicted with a form of dementia) can turn volatile in the blink of an eye as well, it could cause further complications.
Even without the safety and safeguarding concerns, many care homes are generic businesses as well, that whilst being an essential service, don't generally meet much of the criteria set out by Niantic.
However, I'm interested to hear other people's thoughts on this matter.
