Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

August 10, 2020

Care Resources’ services never stopped as we worked to support, protect and treat all of our participants per their specific care plans and needs. We continue to slowly and safely bring participants back into the Day Center, following our phased plan.

Since Care Resources’ participants fall within the highest risk group, we will continue moving slowly with each step of phasing participants back in to the Day Center. Our strict safety protocols help keep risk as low as possible, and we continue to monitor the State of Michigan and CDC guidelines, adjusting our plans as needed.

Participants living in the community by themselves or with limited caregiver support are the first returning to the Day Center, followed by those living in group homes, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities as allowed by State and Federal guidelines. Our interdisciplinary team has reviewed all care plans to determine placements within each group of the phased plan. We always strive to provide the best care possible for everyone in our program, and don’t take these decisions lightly.

All Day Center schedules are reduced initially, with participants coming into the center one day per week to start. We will increase the number of participants in the building and weekly attendance schedules as part of the intentional, phased-in plan. Our goal is to have everyone back in the Day Center by the fall, assuming all goes as planned.

The physical, mental and social health of participants is our top priority and we’re excited to welcome them back to the Day Center again soon!

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.
