With local nursing homes bearing the brunt of coronavirus cases, people are doing what they can to send good thoughts to the residents and staff, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Daily Times.
On May 13, Delaware County Council hand delivered cards, letters and artwork from county residents to the Fair Acres geriatric center, part of an ongoing campaign.
Lawn signs thanked the facility’s “health care heroes”. Posters were hung inside.
Some hard-hit facilities received catered meals.
“During this incredibly difficult time, a hand-written card, a sign, or a meal is a small way we can show our support for both the health care heroes who are on the front lines caring for our most vulnerable population and also for the residents of long-term care facilities who may be feeling fearful and lonely,” said Dr. Monica Taylor, vice chairman of Delaware County Council. “We want them to know that we understand how difficult this is and that the County supports them.”
The community can mail cards, letters, and signs to: IAE Foundation, 2545 Market St., Aston, PA 19014. Items can also be dropped off to that location, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday.
