Act of Kindness from Lorraine

After hearing Dr. Osterholm talk about isolation of seniors due to the pandemic, I called the assisted living home where my mother had lived and asked what I can do to help bring residents in lockdown some cheer and let them know someone is thinking of them.


I try to do something at least bi-weekly for residents and the hard-working staff. I bulk-purchase individually wrapped snacks, save magazines, pick up puzzle books and pass on DVDs. This week, I dropped off more snacks plus lotion and jigsaw puzzles from my stockpile. I wave through the office window then leave everything in their no-contact cart outside. I would love to hear ideas from others, especially with the holidays coming, to add some extra special cheer to these isolating days.
