Quarantined or Sick? Your Neighbors Can Help!

personal errandsAre you quarantined, feeling sick or afraid to go out? If so, your neighbors would like to help. We have received inquiries from people in Scarsdale who are willing to do errands or make a delivery for those in need.

If you need a favor, go to the site's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Scarsdale10583/

Scroll down to our post about requesting help - and post your name, email address and phone number and a description of what you would like to be done.

If you would like to help by doing errands, you can also post your name and phone number or email address so that others know they can reach out to you.

When a task is completed, please email us at scarsdalecomments@gmail.com so we can remove your post.

Also – if you have comments or questions, feel free to email us at scarsdalecomments@gmail.com.

Check in with the Elderly

Also, Scarsdale Edgemont Family Counseling Service’s Aging in Place Initiative would like to remind all residents to please be mindful of your elderly neighbors and friends during this period of time surrounding COVID-19.

The elderly are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of their age or because of underlying health problems. It is extra important for the elderly to take actions to reduce their risk of contracting the virus and therefore they have been encouraged to avoid public settings.

Please consider simple gestures like calling to check in with your elderly neighbors and possibly assisting with groceries. These acts are particularly meaningful and necessary during this uncertain time.

Guidelines for COVID-19 care and prevention are outlined on reliable sources, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Westchester County. www.cdc.gov and www.westchestergov.com.

For additional information, the New York State Health Department Hotline 1-888-364-3065 offers experts on hand to answer questions relating to COVID-19.
