Helping a neighbour whose wife suffered a stroke

by kmyrah, 27 April, 2020

A good friend's mother recently suffered a stroke and the same day she was admitted to care, her family was not able to visit because of the pandemic. Her dad was alone in the house very worried about his wife and also very lonely being at home on his own. The 'old Glenmore' community organized a meal plan for the husband to provide nourishing meals and some social distancing conversation at drop off and pick up of meals/plates, they phoned him to check in, they picked up grocery items for him when going for their own families and were a bright light in an otherwise dark moment. Recently, the wife was released home to everyone's relief and another round of meals are being provided by the neighborhood to help with the transition. This is a wonderful example of a community coming together to help those in need, especially during these unsettling times.
