Arlene has been a caregiver for 5 years in one of the nursing homes in Ottawa receives a SALAMAT Box package
Arlene has been a caregiver for 5 years in one of the nursing homes in Ottawa. The nursing home where she works recently had an outbreak. According to her, the workers and residents are isolated within the unit to prevent transmission of possible infection to other staff and clients. She continues to hope that her workplace will remain supportive in protecting the workers and residents.
Whenever she goes to work, she still feels scared that she might get a disease. Nonetheless she will ensure practice of infection prevention and control guidelines.
On a rainy day, she received Salamat Box Food and Care Package from Philippine Centre Canada (PCC) delivered by PCC volunteer Pamela. Thru the Canadian Red Cross and Employment and Social Development Canada’s assistance, PCC is able to reach out to the Filipino Canadian community in Ottawa and nearby areas.
Thank you Arlene for your dedication to our vulnerable seniors especially during this pandemic!
