Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

October 2020

Fall is here, which brings beautiful colors, cooler temperatures, and the start of flu season. With COVID-19 still active, we wanted to provide another update about the safety measures at Care Resources. Our services never stopped, and we continue to support, protect and treat all of our participants per their specific care plans and needs.

Recently, the Michigan Supreme Court made a ruling against Governor Whitmer’s executive orders. In response, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has issued its own orders to continue the best safety practices for all individuals, groups and businesses in Michigan. Care Resources will continue to follow all of the same safety measures already in place, protecting the health and safety of everyone in our care. Our safety information is found below.

To maintain social distancing and keep risk as low as possible, we are limiting the total number of people in our building at this time. We will continue to keep participants and caregivers updated as changes are made to schedules or services.

As flu season starts, we encourage everyone to get a flu vaccination. Our clinic, assisted living communities, and skilled nursing facilities are working together to provide the annual flu vaccination timely for all of our participants.

The physical, mental and social health of participants is our top priority! Please stay in touch and let us know how we can best support you during this time.

Care Resources is continuing to take referrals and proceeding with intakes and enrollments. Please contact us at 616.913.2006 for new referrals.

Safety Information

  • Masks are required on the buses and while at the center. If participants are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons, additional safety measures will be taken.
  • Participants’ temperatures will be taken before drivers help them onto the buses.
  • To help maintain social distancing, aides will help participants to and from the buses, and participants will be asked to sit in a specific seat or area while at the center.
  • Hand washing is required often and our staff will help participants follow the guidelines.

Ongoing Care for Participants

  • Clinical Care will continue with in-house care management; home care visits; participants seen in our clinic for testing, treatments or procedures; telehealth visits; and telemonitoring services. Routine visits to outside healthcare providers will continue to be evaluated by our primary care team to ensure safety, as those offices fully reopen.
  • Frequent contact with participants and caregivers will continue.
  • Each participant in the community will continue being contacted by our social workers at least twice per week and “happy” calls are also available for those interested.
  • Medications and meals will continue being delivered to participants per their care plans and needs.
