Chappell, Smith & Arden is proud to partner with the Injury Board in their Day of Action Campaign. Our goal is to help South Carolina nursing home residents stay in regular contact with their families during this unprecedented pandemic.
Chappell, Smith & Arden’s campaign will be focused on providing South Carolina nursing home residents with tablets so they are able to communicate face to face with their families. Many nursing home residents in South Carolina have been isolated during the pandemic and have not been able to communicate with their families because the vast majority of nursing homes have been closed to the public. By providing tablets to families, it will provide South Carolina nursing home residents with the ability to communicate with their family members face to face on a daily basis.
A member of our Chappell, Smith & Arden family recently experienced the tragic impact that Covid-19 has had on South Carolina nursing home residents.
On July 28, 2020, Catherine “Cathy” Ryals passed away in a South Carolina nursing home. Her granddaughter is a member of the “CSA-Law Family” and a litigation team paralegal. Cathy was a loved wife, mother, and grandmother who found happiness in even the hardest of times and enjoyed the simple things in life.
Due to the pandemic, Cathy and her family had very limited time and communication in her last months, weeks, and days. Cathy and her family’s unfortunate story has inspired Chappell, Smith & Arden to proudly dedicate our Day of Action Campaign in the memory of Cathy Ryals.
If you have a friend or a family member who is a South Carolina nursing home resident, please apply here for a tablet. Our hope is to keep South Carolina nursing home residents connected with their loved ones during these difficult times.
Tablets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, so be sure to apply today! Quantities are limited.
