The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Staff of the St Lu­cia Elec­tric­ity Ser­vices Limited (LUCELEC) on Fri­day May 22, 2015 vis­ited the Com­fort Bay Se­nior Cit­i­zens Home in La­borie, de­liv­er­ing non-per­ish­able items, en­ter­tain­ment and one-on-one per­sonal in­ter­ac­tion.

The visit fol­lowed an in­vi­ta­tion from the home to launch its “Cor­po­rate Cit­i­zens Home Ini­tia­tive Month”. LUCELEC is the first com­pany to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gramme where lo­cally based com­pa­nies will be in­vited to “help high­light the im­por­tance of rec­og­niz­ing and keep­ing older per­sons in­volved, con­nected, loved and ap­pre­ci­ated.”

In ad­di­tion to the do­nated non-per­ish­able items, which in­cluded gro­cery sta­ples, LUCELEC staff also pre­sented clean­ing sup­plies and a bas­ket of ground pro­vi­sions to the home.

The Com­fort Bay res­i­dents were also treated to a com­bi­na­tion of lo­cal cul­tural dances be­fore staff in­vited them to join in the ac­tiv­ity.

LUCELEC staff vol­un­teered for the ini­tia­tive, as a tan­gi­ble ex­pres­sion of the Com­pany’s “Power of Car­ing”.

Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Manager, Roger Joseph com­mented that ac­tiv­i­ties such as this al­low LUCELEC to re­main en­gaged with the com­mu­nity, and the gen­uine en­thu­si­asm of the staff left the res­i­dents in very high spir­its.

The Com­fort Bay Se­nior Cit­i­zens home is op­er­ated by the Min­istry of Health. It is home to 54 res­i­dents who are 65 years and older.
