Hurricanes Florence & Michael May Be Old News 
But the Recovery is Just Beginning

 

After the waters recede and the cameras disappear, the devastation lingers. In many ways it’s just beginning.

“The aftermath of natural disasters can be as devastating, if not more devastating, than the event itself,” said Wendy Simpson, LTC's Chairman, CEO & President. “Countless senior housing staff members demonstrated loyalty to their residents by ensuring residents were evacuated safely while providing residents’ care despite the staff members knowing they had possibly lost their homes and belongings, and there were incidences where the staff could not be sure their families were safe. In an effort to assist these unsung heroes, LTC contributed to a local charity and launched an industry outreach program encouraging peers to do the same.”
