BIG ‘THANKS’ FOR IRMA HELP
The residents of a PGA National senior living community made a special thank you card for the staff in the wake of Hurricane Irma.
Devonshire and Chatsworth put their preparedness plans in place to make sure the residents would have adequate staff and supplies during and after the storm. Their strategies gave staff and family members the opportunity to stay overnight so they could get to work despite storm damage.
Resident Bob Frasier said he’s grateful for the measures they took in the difficult situation.
“The onsite storm preparations were just outstanding, and everyone on campus appreciated the fact that they could not have been in a better place,” Frasier said.
The staff had town hall meetings, cubbyhole notices and bulletin board postings to keep residents informed. Residents’ family members could keep tabs on them through the communities’ websites and Facebook pages.
Executive Director Jim Wingardner said he was overwhelmed by the efforts of the people who live and work at Devonshire and Chatsworth.
“Our investment of time, energy, and resources played a key role in safeguarding property and lives,” he said.
