In efforts to expand CARES outreach during this pandemic, CARES President and CEO is asking for monetary donations. The organization reports that, due to the crisis, many seniors will face a loss of socialization and will turn to CARES as a lifeline for quality of life, and critical information. As a result, CARES is in need of food, non-perishable items, medications, etc., as it foresees an inevitable increase in demand from our seniors. Additionally, with seniors self-isolating to stop the spread of COVID-19, CARES needs additional funds to operate the telephone reassurance program. CARES Telephone Assurance program makes weekly phone calls to home-bound seniors to provide comforting conversation and verification of the senior’s well-being. They are allowing families and caregivers the reassurance of knowing that someone will be checking on their loved ones on a regularly scheduled basis. Now more than ever, telephone reassurance must expand to help get critical information to our senior population. COVID-19 epidemic means that CARES will now check on seniors more often, to ensure they have essentials while self-isolating. “Due to the economic and social consequences of the pandemic, our seniors are now faced with living in precarious conditions, and they will now need our assistance even more,” says Jemith Rosa, CARES President, and CEO.
