Financial Pathways of the  Piedmont finds a fun way to  support seniors

Although Senior Financial Care Counselors at Financial Pathways of the Piedmont have been unable to conduct in-home visits due to the current health crisis, our staff has been vigilant in continuing to serve not only our current client caseload, but also reaching out to prior clients for wellness checks. 

Even in good times, seniors already face periods of isolation and loneliness. In addition, with various social programs and senior centers closed temporarily, this potentially eliminated the only socialization they may receive. 

Our staff decided to add a little creative fun in their day by assembling activity packets to mail to each of them. The packets included word searches, coloring pages, brainteasers, community referral cards to 211, refrigerator magnets for emergency contact info, along with a small box of crayons and a pen. We topped it off with a card of encouragement from our staff. 

This is one way we have maintained our relationship with our clients and brightened their day with a surprise package.

Megan W. Thompson is the director of marketing & communications for Financial Pathway of the Piedmont.
