Shopping centre donates $3500 to community nurses

A local shopping centre has decided to donate $3500 to Woy Woy community health mursing teams.

Deepwater Plaza marketing manager Ms Jodie Elkin said the money will go teams they have identified as providing a comprehensive service aiming to assist clients to remain in the security and comfort of their own home during periods of illness or acute disability.

Ms Elkin said: "Community health nurses work with clients and their carers to help prevent disease, maintain health and treat any existing health problems.

"The teams make a real difference to the care and experience of patients and their families where they are most comfortable - in their homes.

"Visiting a patient's home also gives the community nursing teams the opportunity to assess and assist if the need arises and act accordingly.

"The teams focus on the promotion and maintenance of optimum health.

"From dressing a wound on a daily basis to holding the hand of someone having a tough day, they are there for the community.

"And they work 365 days a year through rain, hail, sunshine and even pandemics"

As part of a Thank You Project, which will run until Sunday, August 2, customers and retailers will be invited to share a message of thanks.

Deepwater Plaza centre manager Ms Marcelle Proper said the project was a way of allowing the community to give thanks.

She said the intention of the project was to acknowledge the efforts of volunteers, teachers, retail workers, doctors, nurses, carers and emergency service personnel who have faced bushfires, drought, wild storms, floods and coronavirus in 2020 already.

"We invite the local community to share their message of support and appreciation towards the many essential workers that have proudly served our community so well this year," Ms Proper said.
