Compassion just the ticket
When a family member is hospitalized, the parent or spouse should be given a windshield parking permit.
Sometimes, the state of the patient demands hours of stand-by, which causes two-hour cash meters to be refilled, or you get a ticket.
It is stressful to keep order at home, plus travel – sometimes an hour or more – to and from the hospital. So it is only reasonable and considerate to supply free parking to the family members, especially seniors. The parking permit may be returned when the patient is discharged.
May this please become a compassionate reality and help relieve some stress from the family.
