Some of the hardest hit populations during this COVID-19 crisis are seniors living in nursing homes and assisting living residences. Not only are these facilities some of the hardest hit with infections and deaths, they are now quarantined, so residents are isolated and lonely, and staff are overburdened.
Rotary clubs can respond to this heightened need in many ways. Start by reaching out by phone to see what their needs are and how your club can help. Perhaps you can send properly prepared food and treats for residents and staff (check with facility staff for requirements), or send Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards to residents.
Here is a listing of senior living facilities in District 6440. Leave a comment on this story and leave a post with photo on the District 6440 Facebook page. Thank you for being People of Action and serving your community while maintaining social distancing!
