All other programs like Meals on Wheels, Transportation, Home Help & Maintenance, Home at Last, etc. will remain in operation, all adapted to new safety protocols.
We are also maintaining a minimum level of staff in our offices, allowing those who can, to work remotely from their homes.
All Staff and Volunteers complete screening in advance of entry to offices or service delivery. Physical distancing, hand sanitizing and wearing masks have remained mandatory.
