To connect members to resources needed to maintain comfortable, dignified, vibrant lives in their homes and community by providing appropriate services, activities, and programs that will further this purpose.
With Omicron's prevalence and the testing shortage, anyone with symptoms should assume they're positive. Patients are contagious one day before they test positive! Symptoms (if you have them) are easy to confuse with seasonal flu, allergies, and the common cold.
All of our volunteers are vaccinated but due to the current increase of Covid-19 cases we are again asking Members to request only essential services. Our aim is to reduce person to person contact.
