This is a salute to all those who care for our beloved elderly day after day regardless of what is happening in the world around them. COVID-19 has definitely shone a new light on the vulnerability of this segment of society but it has also demonstrated the resiliency, compassion and commitment of the many workers that reported to work in this new environment, donned critical PPE, implemented increasing restrictions on residents and tried to explain again and again why a resident had to stay in their rooms; to keep everyone safe.
One such person that I want to salute is Patio Girlz @Tracey Pope. Tracey brings empathy, compassion and humour to all in her care. Her positive disposition shines through even in these unprecedented COVID-19 times. Despite working long shifts day after day, she still found time to connect with her Patio Girlz, through one of our digital Friday patios over the last 3 months.
You are one of kind Tracey Pope, thank you for all you do!
