    Home-care kits

    Day 143

    Equipped To Care

    Knowing is half the battle.

    Yesterday, our community activists were trained to provide home-based care to neighbors unable to make it to the clinic or living out their final days at home. Trainees like Verene were excited by what they learned, “today’s training was the best.” But without some of the tools to provide that care, their new knowledge wouldn’t allow them to help their neighbors in the way they could.

    So, on Day 143, we outfitted each of the trainees with their very own home-care kit. They all received rubber gloves and medical aprons to help protect themselves and their patients. Part of home care means helping patients with cleanliness, so each kit contained bleach, hand soap and laundry soap. And to provide their patients, they received a small stock of adult diapers, toothbrushes and toothpaste.

    “I’m so excited. I’ve been going to see patients without these materials,” said Verene. “Now, these will assist us with the hygiene of the patients and ourselves.”

    This change made possible by Cresa.
