Remember, each resident at Palm Lake Care has a direct dial phone line to their private suite. We are looking at ways we can continue our musical and other forms of entertainment and connection. We are partnering with schools for a pen pal program, introducing “Message a resident” to our website, skype and face time with families and telehealth appointments are already underway. ‘The Daily Mail’ delivered each morning will share resident stories, puzzles, quizzes and jokes. We hope sharing a kindness witnessed will become a regular feature that encourages contributions and helps keep spirits high.
“Thank a care worker” through our facebook page or website here. With literally hundreds of care workers every day we always have a contingency plan for a number of people unable to turn up for a rostered shift. Since the COVID-19 outbreak our absenteeism has reduced to below normal levels which is an enormous testament to the dedication of our caregivers and support personnel. Every day our care workers leave their home and their family to care for someone else’s. Help to keep spirits high with long hours and difficult conditions by sending a message of support or report an act of kindness you witnessed.
