Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

June 26, 2020

Care Resources’ services — to support, protect and treat all of our participants — never stopped. In the coming weeks, we will be taking small steps to slowly bring participants back into the Day Center through our phased plan to regain all programming.

Since Care Resources’ participants fall within the highest risk group, we are intentionally moving slowly with each step of phasing our participants back in to the Day Center, starting with fewer people in the building at the same time to ensure safe social distancing and keeping risk as low as possible. We will continue to monitor the State of Michigan and CDC guidelines, adjusting our plans as needed to keep everyone safe and healthy — participants, staff and community. 

Our interdisciplinary team has reviewed care plans for all participants to determine which people would be best for each group of the phased plan. We always strive to provide the best care possible for everyone in our program, so we don’t take these decisions lightly.

The first small groups returning will include participants living in the community by themselves or with limited caregiver support, followed by those participants living in group homes, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. All Day Center schedules will be reduced initially, with most 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 participant plan. Our goal is to have everyone back in the Day Center around mid-August, 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.
  • 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.
  • Socialization, rehabilitation, and recreation therapy options are being offered to participants while they remain in their homes. Staying active at home, both mentally and physically, helps keep our participants healthy.
