How are our neighbors doing?
Our staff has adapted to the requirements of social distancing, and we've been connecting with neighbors by telephone. People are reporting that they are doing well and that they are checking in with their neighbors to make sure they have what they need, especially when these neighbors have been elders. CNA intern Bryan reports:
"I have been so delighted to hear that the people I spoke to who needed dog food or personal protective equipment were able to receive what they needed, sometimes within 24 hours. All it took was making a simple phone call. What I hear time and time again from folks is how thankful they are that their neighborhood association cares enough about them to check in. Sometimes there have been people who don't need anything other than another person to talk to, so we just talk."
