Recognizing True Heroes during the Most Trying Times           


 By Maria Burke, RN, Owner, Celtic Angels Home Health Care

None of us have seen the likes of COVID-19, specifically the ramifications of this life-threatening virus, and how it has forced all of us to change our lives so drastically from the way that we used to live. But there is a group of people who continue to remain the same, that is, in their commitment to deliver exceptional health care to their patients.

Health care workers, including doctors, nurses, certified nursing assistants, along with police officers, firefighters, first responders, and so many others, continue to demonstrate a quiet courage that is innate and so very honorable.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of these people, along with grocery store workers, truck drivers, delivery people, and anyone who continues to do their job, despite the health risk they face every day.

To show our appreciation, Celtic Angels Home Health Care is running a Facebook program that works this way: When anyone posts a picture of someone they know who is a ‘True Hero,’ we are donating 40 meals worth of food to the Weymouth Food Pantry. That’s 40 meals for every photo posted. Our goal is to donate a total of 4,000 meals worth of food to the pantry. It’s just our way of saying thanks to all of our “True Heroes.”
