Frontline ER Staff “Adopts” Neighborhood Long-Term Care Center
Dallas, Tex., April 14, 2022. What happens when you want to decorate eggs for the Easter holiday and you’re not sure what to do with the finished product? Some of the staffers at Frontline ER decided they wanted to share their holiday goodies with the residents of a nearby long-term care facility in East Dallas.
“What started as a conversation about dyeing Easter eggs at work for ourselves turned into a way to give back to the community,” Sarah Anderson said. “We know these last few years have been lonely and disconnected for many people, especially those in long-term care facilities. So we decided to take our dyed eggs to Autumn Leaves down the street.”
Ms. Anderson is a physician assistant at Frontline ER, Dallas.
Autumn Leaves is an assisted living and memory facility near White Rock Lake. Many of their residents have been isolated during the pandemic due to their age and chronic health conditions.
“We’ve gathered the names of residents and the Frontline ER staff is assembling personalized baskets,” Ms. Anderson continued. “On April 14, the Thursday before Easter Sunday, the Easter Bunny will be presenting our gift baskets in person at Autumn Leaves.”
“If you must know,” Ms. Anderson added, ”I’ll be the one in the costume.”
“As a staff we enjoy doing things together and helping the community, too,” Laura Tschida, said. “This project was the latest way we could continue our outreach that we started with similar projects that benefitted local schools and the Dallas Police Department.”
Ms. Tschida is marketing director for Frontline ER.
