As our staff left the HSFA premises, after being in voluntary lockdown for over 3.5 months, there was an atmosphere of anticipation and excitement to be reuniting with their families. Memories, bonds and new friendships were also formed between staff in their shared accommodation. The caring dedication of the staff was clear, and they left the lockdown knowing that they had done everything they could to help the HSFA prepare for the continued safety of our residents.
“Thank you heroes – and re-energise for the next challenges ahead!” Over 220 HSFA essential staff, as well as service providers, moved into various HSFA sites and nearby halls.
The community supported through donations of linen, blankets,TV’s, DVD’s, appliances and games to make the lockdown more comfortable. Several local organisations provided halls. Thank you’s go to:
