We are very excited to share some recent news from our team. We congratulate Susan Post on the birth of her baby girl!
We welcome the following new participants. If you see any of these individuals, please be sure to extend a friendly welcome.
The PACE Association of Michigan (PAM) hosted its 2022 Day at the Capitol in Lansing on May 10. Participants, staff, and volunteers from Care Resources and 12 other Michigan PACE Organizations gathered on the Capitol lawn.
Care Resources was recently mentioned in an article published by Second Wave Michigan that highlights a new partnership between Care Resources and Samaritas. The partnership will allow for distribution of smart glasses to three to five family caregivers who look after loved ones with dementia.
Have you ever heard someone say that Care Resources sounds too good to be true? Do you get asked about the requirements to enroll? Through our new video series, Myths & Mugs, our team dispels common myths and helps answer important questions about the program.
All safety protocols in place for Care Resources continue:
- Masks are required.
- Temperatures are taken before getting on buses.
- Social distancing has been relaxed in the Day Center, but designated areas are still socially distanced for those who prefer it.
- Participant attendance has been updated and increased!
- Frequent hand washing is required.
- Cleaning of high-touch surfaces occurs daily; industrial cleaning occurs weekly.
Routines may not go back to how they were before. We’ve learned a lot through this pandemic, but our services never stopped and we don’t plan to start now.
Care Resources is proud to provide all services within the safety of CDC and state COVID-19 guidelines. We were recently able to welcome back a large number of participants into the center with safety measures in place. Since doing so, we have not experienced any COVID-19 outbreaks at the Day Center!
