Thank you to the individuals and groups who have inquired with us as to how they can help nursing home residents and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. And thank you for coming to this page! We appreciate the sentiment and every bit of help.
If you need more information on any of the below, contact us at moc.nheraci@ofni.
Here are some ideas on how you might help us or any other nursing home and its residents and staff:
GET VACCINATED AND A BOOSTER AS SOON AS YOU CAN. Stay safe!
Also, to be clear; get vaccinated.
- Write notes or cards for residents. We can help connect you with a resident if you would like a pen pal.
- Send a resident or a healthcare hero a note, letter, picture or video through the iCareMessages page. Click here…
- Share your positive stories with the media. The media has a job to do and is trying to cover this crisis but its important that they accurately reflect the hard work and sacrifice happening in the nursing homes. Not just the negatives and the tragedies. Letters to the Editor are a great place to start. Or send us your letter of support to moc.nheraci@ofni and if its fits our criteria we will post to our blog and send out on social media.
- Get vaccinated.
