Last Thursday was a special day for local home health, hospice, rehab and at-home agencies in the Auburn-Opelika area as community members partnered together to drive in a caravan-like fashion and put on a parade for healthcare workers, senior citizens and their caretakers. Drivers displayed signs or painted their windows with uplifting messages and words that could be viewed by those enjoying the parade. There were a lot of waves and honking horns also. The parade last more than two hours, and included stops at The Harbor, Dr. Keith Fuller’s office, East Alabama Ear Nose and Throat, the Orthopaedic Clinic, Internal Medicine Associates, East Alabama Medical Center, Arbor Springs, the Wound Care Clinic, Timothy Manor, Camellia Place, Dr. Meka and Dr. Arbans offices, Azalea Place, Magnolia Place, Dr.Wood,Canfield and Horak’s offices and Morningside of Auburn. At each stop, healthcare workers and caretakers would come to the doors and wave. At one stop, it was stated that it was the first time the residents had been outside since COVID-19 made its presence known locally.
