We Remain Open as an Essential Service
January 15th, 2021
Community Care Peterborough programs continue under the Stay At Home Order issued by the Premier and effective as of Thursday, January 14th, 2021.
We have been deemed an essential service, our health care and seniors support programs are necessary to keep the most vulnerable safe in their own homes.
In constant contact with Peterborough Public Health, we are committed to our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19. We have cancelled only our:
Blood Pressure Clinics,
In-person (indoor) falls prevention and exercise classes,
and closed our New to You Thrift Stores.
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.
Community Care will continue to monitor the local situation regarding COVID-19.
We appreciate all those who are staying home and allowing our staff and volunteers to remain focused on providing programs that are supporting clients and area residents to remain safely in their homes.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve within the City and County of Peterborough we are doing everything we can to support our communities through this difficult time.
We remain in contact with Peterborough Public Health and we are committed to our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19. We have adapted our services to include additional safety precautions and we continue to practice social distancing in our offices for the safety of the most vulnerable.
We want to thank our volunteers and donors for all your efforts and support, together we are staying focused on helping our seniors and adults with disabilities remain in their homes during this uncertain time.
We are committed to continuing to communicate to you any changes or updates. For more information call us at (705)742-7067.
