helping connect to covid resources
In February, we spoke with a senior citizen on the phone that was in need of food and hygiene items. She had requested that we deliver the items as she recently lost access to transportation, and was fearful of the bus line. We arranged food and hygiene items for her, and had them delivered to her home the following day. We also provided her with hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies, and masks in addition to the Covid-19 fliers. She called us that evening and asked if we knew of any resources that could provide her with a ride so she could access the Covid-19 vaccine. While we had her on the phone, we helped her register for her vaccine, schedule the vaccine, and schedule a ride through the UG “Request a ride” resource through the Health Department. We called her the next day to check on her and see how it all went, and she was super happy that we were able to not only provide her with the information, but actually complete the process with her over the phone so she could get vaccinated.
