While our Spring Appeal is STILL ONGOING we have reach 100% of the fundraising goal in order to purchase a Respirator Fit Tester!!!! This portion of our 2021 Spring Appeal will help to properly fit our healthcare staff in N95 masks quicker, easier and with a lower margin of error. Strengthening our infection control measures, thus ensuring the health & wellbeing of both staff and residents!
2021 Spring Appeal
The COVID-19 Pandemic has been devastating for husband & wife, Joe and Judy Hilton. Pre-pandemic, every day, sometimes twice a day you could find Judy at Joe’s side feeding him, reading him a favorite book or helping him reminisce about their life together. That completely came to an abrupt halt on March 12, 2020.
Since then, Judy has only seen Joe either virtually or through an inch of glass. Judy does have peace of mind Joe is well cared for but still longs for a time when she and her family can embrace Joe, kiss him and tell him they love him.
The Hilton’s story is truly poignant but unfortunately not unique. Here at Daughters of Sarah Community for Seniors, we have strived to keep our residents’ health and safety our number one priority throughout the pandemic.
Your help is needed! Your 2021 Spring Appeal donation will:
- Sustain the personal visitation needs of each resident: i.e.- virtual visits, window visits, outdoor in-person visits, and indoor in-person visits. All vital to the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of ALL of our residents!
- Assist us with our on-going pandemic related expenses: i.e.: vaccinations, COVID testing, healthcare recruitment efforts & PPE supplies.
