In challenging times, people draw together. Even though we can’t physically meet right now, we can do a lot as a community to encourage each other. Here in Shreveport LA, many of our tenants include healthcare workers who benefit from our fully furnished travel nurse housing. We are proud to offer different ways you can encourage nurses and medical professionals in Louisiana in this post.
How can I encourage nurses in Shreveport?
Even if you’re home-bound, you can still encourage others around you! Make it a goal each day to brighten the day of someone else. Healthcare workers such as those at Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport or Willis-Knighton Medical Center are serving on the front lines. Nurses and doctors daily face the challenges of providing compassionate care to sick persons.
- One way you can encourage doctors and travel nurses is to write notes of appreciation or to have your children make some drawings or do some coloring pages. These simple notes may not seem like much but can be a big encouragement and show hard-working nurses that they matter. Check out this link for some ideas on how to write a thank you note. Or, if you’d prefer to send your note via email, you can send your notes to those at Willis-Knighton via their Spiritual Life Blog.
- If you’d prefer a more tangible or hands-on project of appreciation, consider making some face masks for nurses. This can literally help keep them safe and healthy. Making masks also is a great opportunity to teach the kids how to sew! Check out this local sewing shop’s Facebook page or the Jo-Ann Fabric website for options in the Shreveport area.
- One way you can help to encourage medical professionals is by staying well! Practice personal hygiene, teach your family how to clean / stay healthy and have a positive attitude about staying home. Your actions will speak loudly and can be a role model for others.
- If you have friends and family who are doctors or nurses, be sure to send them a text, message or other note of encouragement. You even can schedule a Zoom meeting or FaceTime chat to check in and make sure they are okay. Ask them what you can do to help and how you can care for them. It’ll mean more than you know!
We hope these tips will help get you started towards encouraging others!
