Family Support Group - Meeting in person!
A wonderful day! the reunion of the Family Support Group—that for the past two years, Covid had allowed to meet only via zoom and/or whatsapp. The meeting brought forth lots of lots of radiant smiles, happy greetings, and great sighs of relief. Each participant knew he/she had survived Covid-time, and could see those who also had survived the two years of very difficult challenges.
You gave an enormous gift by giving our people the chance to share in person their trials and triumphs. Your gifts kept this program alive.
Finally, after sharing their challenges, the family members were able to start planning for the future—how to further enrich the lives of their loved ones during visits to them at the Homes, which they hope to be more frequent than pre-Covid. Each family member learned something from the others that will make this possible.
Besides reaching out to others’ family members, this group will also help the Homes’ staff to reach out to and involve others who, for a variety of reasons, were unable to participate regularly during Covid. The seeds you have planted will provide a rich crop of education and support to our other families—thereby enriching their lives and the lives of their loved ones whom they entrust to us.
On behalf of the families, their loved ones and our staff, our deepest thanks.
