Testimonials honour health care workers during COVID-19

Local service clubs and businesses spearheading a campaign to thank health care teams working through the COVID-19 pandemic are pleased people are responding to it ‘Apricot Ribbon Campaign – including lawn signs saying “thank you”, flying apricot ribbons in gratitude, and sending testimonials about the great work that is taking place on the front lines.

Here are some examples:

“Chantelle Scott is a Developmental Support Worker with Community Living Picton. She does not hesitate when they are short-staffed, to take the extra shifts to help out thoughout this hard time dealing with COVID-19. She makes sure that the needs of the people she supports are met with the highest level of care.”

Judy Silverberg writes: “Recently, in what can only be described as a dumb moment, I inadvertently swiped my hand across a very hot stovetop. Off I went to emergency seeking treatment for the resulting painful burn. Upon arrival, I was immediately taken inside to be treated. The triage, nurses and doctor were wonderful, so gentle and kind, yet swift and professional.

“I remember feeling overwhelmingly grateful to receive this level of care right here in our town of Picton. Even the front desk security staff were lovely. As I was making my way out to the parking lot to wait for my husband, one of them very kindly said ‘go have a seat in the living room, and I’ll come get you when he’s here’. I was very touched by his gesture, and I won’t soon forget his witty thoughtfulness. I am pleased to display my apricot ribbon in support of the wonderful health care team we have here.”

Bill Mitchell contributes: “In May of last year, I suffered a stroke on my left side. My right arm has been paralyzed since birth so I am a little useless. I was taken immediately to BGH from Wellington where I was taken to intensive care. I spent three or 4 days in I.C.U, and to the Sills wing for Re-Hab for 4 days. I wish I could remember all the names of the nurses and doctors who took care of me during COVID. All I can say is that we have the best Hospitals and staff in Ontario. Today I’m 99 % back to normal except for my memory so I am very sorry I can’t remember names, but I’m sure they remember me. Thank you, Thank you. I owe all concerned my life.”

More testimonials are welcome to let health care workers know how much their dedication and sacrifice is valued.
