Let's TALK About It
"Let's TALK about it" is a new initiative of Lucy Corr Foundation aimed at providing mental health resources for long-term healthcare staff and residents. This program emerged from the emotional effects that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on older adults and long-term care providers.
If you or someone you know is having a mental health crisis please call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1.800.273.TALK (8255).
The Effects of COVID-19
To protect our residents from the COVID-19 pandemic, visitors have not been allowed in the Lucy Corr health center building since mid-March. Recognizing the important role that staying connected to family and friends plays in ensuring that our residents are able to live their best life, the Foundation has provided mobile virtual visit carts with iPads and wireless headphones.
If you know a senior at Lucy Corr or in the community who may be isolated due to the pandemic, be sure to reach out by telephone, virtual visit or with a card or letter.
Funding for this program is provided by:
Community Foundation for a
Richmond Memorial Health Foundation
A Little Extra Lift
Throughout the pandemic, the Lucy Corr Foundation has provided fresh flowers to every resident at Lucy Corr. By bringing in just a touch of summer sunshine, we were able to provide just a "little extra lift" to each resident's life and continue the tradition of compassion and caring established by Miss Lucy Corr.
