Throughout the past weeks, the healthcare heroes at Reformed Church Home (RCH) in Old Bridge have been truly blessed with countless donations and well wishes from generous families, partner, and local businesses. Every department in our senior community has been touched by these acts of kindness. RCH wishes to thank all those who have provided protective equipment, hand sewn masks, catered meals, snacks, breakfast items, handmade cards, letters and emails of gratitude and more. The list of contributors is long and we wish to acknowledge each one, for now with a more general message of gratitude. You know who you are, and we can never thank you enough.

Just as these encouragements keep our workforce going, the staff perseveres to care for our skilled nursing and assisted living residents in the safest, most compassionate way possible. From nursing to housekeeping, activities to administration, development to dietary, housekeeping to accounting, each staff member working through this coronavirus crisis has given every ounce of energy, with a long road still ahead.

In early April, we initiated an Employee Appreciation Fund to allow us to coordinate deliveries and donations so that each member of our 24-hour/7-days-a-week team feels appreciated. To find out more, visit www.ReformedChurchHome.com. Tax deductible donations will be acknowledged with a letter within one to two weeks of receipt. Contributions are accepted via check, credit card via the website, and gift cards from four select Old Bridge businesses: Giuseppe’s Pizza, Panera Bread, Bagel Boy, and Dunkin on Route 18. Questions can be directed to Paula LeBlanc, director of Development, 732-607-9230, ext. 108.
