Melba is a dietary aid in a retirement home. According to her, it is a big challenge for Personal Support Workers (PSW) like her during the pandemic as there is a high risk of contacting diseases through the provision of direct care. Also, during outbreaks, every worker must follow infection prevention guidelines to protect each resident and every worker in the workplace. She expressed that it is a stressful situation to be in because she worries that she might be infected. However, Melba is thankful that so far, she has been healthy during the pandemic.
Melba is very grateful for the SALAMAT box food package and hand hygiene kit delivered by volunteers Rochelle and Mila.
