Message from Center for Respite Care
From Your Team at The Center for Respite Care
We treat people experiencing homelessness who are ill and have no other place to recover. As such, we will remain in full operation and we will continue to treat our current clients. We will not be accepting any new admissions, indefinitely. We will allow family and friends to drop necessary items off for current clients but are not able to permit entrance to the Center or person-to-person visiting at this time.
Along with our physician, Dr. Bob Donovan we have elevated our safety/hygiene measures currently in place, most notably, information for staff and clients about staying safe in and out of the Center (no touching, shaking of hands, frequently washing hands, maintaining distance from each other, etc.)
Our clients will only “leave the facility” for approved, essential medical appointments.
Our volunteers are an important part of our team and will have the option to pass on any scheduled visits in the event that they are uncomfortable. We continue to accept and be thankful for meals from volunteers.
We have left two rooms open in order to treat individuals should they be exhibiting symptoms and/or test positive for the corona virus, for observation and quarantine.
Should we, in the unlikely event, have a client with a confirmed case, we will take additional precautions that could include continuing to suspend new admissions and/or further quarantine and, lockdown.
Thank you to our friends, community partners, volunteers and donors for their support and understanding during this challenging time.
