You are subscribed to the news of the project “Surviving COVID-19 in Russian Nursing Homes” of the charitable foundation “Enjoyable Ageing”. We are pleased to present a new report about this project.
First of all, we want to thank you again for your donation! Thank you for supporting us during the pandemic. We are happy to save lives together with you!
We have already helped and continue supporting nursing homes infected with COVID-19. We supplied the facilities with medicines and protective equipment, provided psychological assistance for the staff and hired the necessary personnel. Due to the complete isolation the residents of the facilities and staff couldn’t go to the shops or receive parcels from relatives. We decided to support them and organized the delivery of juices, and some nice snacks like sweets and tea to cheer them up. Tea drinking is an opportunity to steal a moment for some rest, so with enough supplies of this kind people in nursing homes could feel they are not alone.
It is possible to say that COVID situation expanded the geography of the foundation activities and today we are also supporting nursing homes in the regions we’ve never helped before: Karelia, Chuvashia, Mordovia, Mari El, Tyva, Penza and Magadan. Previously, there were not enough resources and funds for this, but thanks to the financial assistance of the caring people we were able to enlarge the geography and let more elderly and disables people and specialists feel that we highly appreciate them and always ready for help.
Today the funds and efforts of nursing homes are running out, and the expenses of our foundation have exceeded all the possible limits. However, it is too early to stop. We hope that together we will continue to help elderly and disabled people, supplying the nursing homes with protective equipment, medicines, care products as well as hire the additional staff.
Thank you for being with us!
Please, stay healthy and take care!
The "Enjoyable Ageing" team.
