At Seniors Helping Seniors of North & East Raleigh our fabulous caregivers are being creative in finding ways to keep our seniors busy during these days of social distancing! One of our caregivers and I went to visit Luci for her 73rd birthday party. She lives in an independent living community and we hated the thought of her being alone. We coordinated with Luci’s residence staff to have a socially distant celebration with all the proper precautions. Luci’s primary caregiver, Anne, and I donned our PPE, had our temperature taken and showed up with our Birthday Wishes sign, some flowers, and a yummy cupcake. She was ecstatic to see us, and it warmed our hearts to see her. During these times of self-imposed isolation, it is important for your loved ones to get some social interaction even if they can’t go out on their own. We like to let them know that they are not alone, and we are here for them when they need us.
Our staff are all trained in COVID-19 precautions and complete a screening questionnaire prior to starting any shift. If you or your loved one need us, we have caregivers available to help. Contact us at (919) 761-5346 or seniorcareeastraleigh.com.
