HELPING A RESIDIENT FAMILY MEMBER IN HER TIME OF NEED. 15791

12/02/2020


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

MYSELF AND TWO COMMUNITY HOUSING RESIDIENTS WORKED TOGETHER WITHIN OUR COMPLEX FROM 20 OCTOBER TO 30 NOVEREMBER. LIVING IN A SENIOR COMPLEX WE RESIDIENTS BECOME CLOSE TO ONE ANOTHER, AND LIVE HERE AS A SENIOR FAMILY. DURING MID OCTOBER ONE OF OUR RESIDIENTS WAS NOT SEEN WALKING, OR DRIVING FOR THREE DAYS. AS FAR AS WE KNEW SHE WAS AT HOME BECAUSE HER CAR HADN’T BEEN MOVED. IN THE PASS SHE HAS ALWAYS PUT OUT THE WORD IF SHE WAS GOING TO BE AWAY. SO ON 20 OCTOBER ONE OF THE SENIORS AND MYSELF WENT TO HER APARTMENT AND KNOCKED ON THE DOOR AND RANG THE BELL WITHOUT ANY ANSWER. THIS SITUATION THEN BECAME SERIOUS. SO WITH US NOT HAVING A KEY TO HER APARTMENT WE DECIDED TO CONTACT A CLOSE FRINED OF HERS WHO LET US KNOW WHERE WE COULD FIND A SPARE KEY TO GET IN. WE ALSO DECIDED THAT NOT KNOWING WHAT WE MIGHT BE WALKING INTO, WE SHOULD CALL THE POLICE AND HAVE THEM COME AND ASSIST US. ONCE THE POLICE OFFICER CAME WE ENTERED THE APARTMENT WITH HIM AND FOUND THE RESIDIENT IN HER BED AND VERY ILL, AND PRETTY MUCH NON-RESPONSIVE. WE THEN CALLED 911 FOR THE LOCAL RESCUE TO COME TO HELP THIS REDIDIENT OUT. SHE WAS TAKE TO THE HOSPITOL AND STAYED THERE UNTIL HER RELEASE AFTER THANGSGIVING. DURING THE TIME THE RESIDIENT WAS IN THE HOSPITOL,TWO OF US TOOK CARE OF HERE PET, FEEDING AND CLEANING IT DAILY. WE ALSO CLEANED UP HERE APARTMENT AND BED ROOM SO IT WOULD BE CLEAN UPON HER RETURN. WE ALSO MADE SURE THE VEHICLE WAS KEEP IN ORDER. SINCE THE RESIDIENTS RETURN HOME, A NUMBER OF US HAVE CHECKED IN, AND HELPED WITH THE ERRANDS, SEEINGS AS SHE CAN NO LONGER DRIVE. AS A KNIGHT OF COLUMBUS WE ARE CHALLANGED EVERY DAY TO A NEW REQUEST FOR HELP, AND ALSO TO PRAY FOR THOSE IN NEED. OUR LORD WAS TRULY GOOD TO US AND THE RESIDIENT, IN DISCOVERING THAT THIS RESIDIENT WAS VERY ILL AND NEEDED MEDICAL ATTENTION, SEEINGS AS SHE COULD NOT CALL FOR HELP HERSELF. GOD IS TRULY GOOD, AND PERFORMS MIRICLES EVERY DAY.
