Assisted living facility residents enjoying their “general store”
When residents at the Rosecastle of Citrus Assisted Living facility in Lecanto had to stop going to the general store because of the coronavirus pandemic, a staff member thought why now bring the store to them.
Whether residents are looking for some cookies or some toiletries, they will be able to find it at the “This and That” general store and they do not have to walk very far.
Store Manager Bettie McDonough said, “I enjoy every day I come to work here.”
For residents like McDonough, this place is heaven sent. “I do the buying and the pricing and she goes out and she purchases whatever the patient needs and then we put it in our store,” she added.
