I have the privilege of working for the Perley Rideau. This is currently a very challenging time for our Perley long-term care residents, their families who are having to care from a distance, and our care team. Everyday when I go to work I am touched by all of my co-workers who continue to show-up to work with a smile and the determination to make sure our residents have the best day possible, by Veteran residents who offer words of wisdom and perspective from their lived experiences, and by family members who offer heartfelt words of thanks and encouragement when I know they are suffering themselves. It is for these reasons that I have chosen to participate in the 5km virtual run and help raise funds for the Perley Rideau COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. If you wish to help here are a few ways that you can: 1. Make a donation today 2. Register for your own virtual run and join team Perley Rideau Foundation 3. Send me a message of encouragement Thank you!
