Bre is a geriatric nurse practitioner in Atlanta, GA, and her patients are some of the most vulnerable to the COVID-19 outbreak. The elderly, and many similarly at risk populations, are in good hands when they’re hands like Bre’s and those of her fellow public service workers.
Public Service Workers have been a driving force in maintaining the livelihood of our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a geriatric psychiatry provider in long term care facilities, I have seen first hand how Corona has affected my service area. The nurses, nursing assistants, social workers, activities directors, nurse practitioners, dietary staff and other providers in long term care facilities such as nursing homes, personal care homes and assisted living are true unsung heroes.
