Carmen Slenk, an occupational therapist in Lansing, Michigan, works in rehabilitating geriatric patients at Medilodge of Campus Area. In order to safeguard the patients, each employee enters through the back door of the building, where their vitals are checked before being permitted into the common areas.
Statistics show that COVID-19 has presented greater risk in people ages 60+. Since the majority of patients are over this age, Medilodge is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of their patients.
With the uncertainty and sorrows surrounding this pandemic, it is easy to be swept up in fear. That is why Carmen and the other therapists at Medilodge are going above and beyond to bring fun and cheer to the workplace. Today, staff are donning their flower-power and tie-die prints for Hippy Day.
Thank you to Carmen, and all the other therapists on the frontlines, ensuring care and help to their patients. We appreciate you.
