PALS-OASIS

February 18 2021

We, at Valley Caregiver Resource Center are proud to continue offering the “Stay Home, Save Lives, Check-In” campaign through these trying times.

Do you have a senior loved one at home, or have senior residents at your long-term care facility who are struggling with feeling disconnected? As your advocates, the PALS/OASIS programs at Valley Caregiver Resource Center would like to ask you to invite your seniors to participate in an interactive weekly call aimed at connecting with those seniors who need it most.

Our Care Companions are offering our support by enriching the lives of the seniors in our community with regular check-ins and much needed personal connection. We will be there for them with open hearts, open ears and a wide knowledge bank to help them navigate their current situation. We can offer tips on safety, health or wellness. We can offer companionship & listen to stories to help soothe their lonely souls. We can assist them with current technology that is needed to stay in touch with us or even with other loved ones. We can help boost their self-esteem & even give them ideas on how to remain physically active. We will be their outlet for almost any other stressor they may want to discuss.

CONVERSATION TOPICS INCLUDE:
• Health & Wellness
• Safety
• Reminiscing
• Community Involvement
• Staying Connected with Technology
• How to Stay Active
• Virtual Gathering
• And More

The weekly calls from the “Stay Home,
Save Lives, Check-In” campaign will provide
your senior(s) an opportunity to stay connected amidst the isolation that has often been created by the pandemic. We will reach out to them by phone on a weekly basis and will promote:
• Socialization
• Community Connection
• Companionship
• Enhanced Physical & Cognitive Health
• Positivity & Self-Esteem
• Staying Active In Their Unique Setting
• And More

Our goal is to give our seniors meaningful conversation, valuable advise, & a sense of purpose. Let’s connect. Let’s connect with our seniors. Let’s connect with each other. Together we can help ensure our seniors have the support and knowledge they need to nagivate through these uncertain times. We can help ensure they aren’t left too out of touch.

For more information on the program benefits, how to enroll, or to obtain an authorization release form, please call or email Kristina Corona at 559-224-9121 or email kcorona@vcrc.qrx3.com.

Funding for this campaign is provided by Fresno-Madera Area Agency on Aging.
