Chronicle Counsel: Two very important words…

2020 has been a difficult and challenging year so far for many Australians.

From the devastating summer bushfires, ongoing drought, wild storms, floods and now the Coronavirus pandemic, the nation has been impacted on so many fronts.

In response, Central Coast Chronicle business member Deepwater Plaza is proud to launch the Thank You Project community initiative.

Until  Sunday 2 August, Deepwater Plaza will host the Thank You Project and is inviting customers and retailers to share a message of thanks on the giant in centre community appreciation wall and acknowledge the amazing efforts of the many essential workers in our community.

Volunteers, teachers, retailer workers, doctors, nurses, carers and emergency services personnel have all made a difference to someone in need in our local community.

Deepwater Plaza Centre Manager Marcelle Proper said; “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. This is our way of saying thank you.”

More than ever we need to support those Australians who are experiencing hardship. Australia is built on mateship, mutual respect, compassion for those in need and the pursuit of the public good.

The main focus of Community Health Nursing is to provide 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. The teams also focus on the promotion and maintenance of optimum health.

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. 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!

The Thank You Project community appreciation wall is located outside Service NSW at Deepwater Plaza, Woy Woy through until 2 August.
