ehm’s Spiritual Program Gets Jabs in Arms to Save Lives
Breaking barriers for our most vulnerable neighbours to get vaccinated and stay safe.

Dear Friends in the Presbyterian Community,

I am so grateful that ehm is a safe, welcoming place for so many people who otherwise would be alone. Our doors and hearts are open to extend fellowship and comfort.

Helping clients receive their vaccines has been a top priority. Many are highly vulnerable to this illness but also face difficulties getting through the vaccination process. Staff have devoted hours to helping clients understand the process and guidelines, locate clinics, register, and prepare for their appointments.

Rev. Dale Henry, Spiritual Care Provider, worked with a medically-fragile senior in the ehm Residence for weeks, looking for a clinic that could meet their needs. It needed to be within very short walking distance and not involve long lines or crowds of people.

Thankfully, a pop-up clinic was established at ehm. Rev. Henry helped the resident complete the registration and stood by their side right through until the recovery time was complete. Rather than being filled with fear and apprehension, our resident laughed and smiled through the appointment, sharing humor and fellowship with Dale.

After this appointment, Dale greeted and ushered clients waiting in line for their vaccine or take-out meal, extending a warm welcome and hospitality.

With deepest thanks,
