Hi Everyone! Our Day and Clinical Services Team wanted to send out a quick message say thank you for allowing us to continue to serve you throughout the pandemic. Although our operational capacity has been limited, we’ve been fortunate to have been able to support many people through both our Day Services (on-site, virtually and in-home) and our Clinical services (both virtually and limited in-person). As you may have seen, Support, Inc. has updated operating protocols, following the most recent Colorado Public Health and Colorado Medicaid regulatory and licensing guidelines. In accordance with that, we want to let everyone know that we are thoughtfully opening up our Day Services to greater capacities and options.
First, with increased capacity, we are able to offer additional spots to anyone interested in attending our site-based services at our Aurora location. We understand that it can be an important decision to make, and encourage you to talk with any of our team members, or your Residential Program Coordinator to have an IDT to discuss coming back. If you’re interested, we would love to talk through our safety protocols, infection control measures, and fun things we have planned!
Second, with the warmer weather we will be planning, announcing and offering more outdoor events. All our events will be announced via email or our website and will have an RSVP contact. This will allow us to approach each event and each person who would like to attend individually to ensure an optimal experience for all involved. Group sizes will be kept relatively small and appropriate for the activity and the location to allow for social distancing. If you’re interested in any events we have to offer, please let us know via RSVP.
Third, for those who are interested and more comfortable with 1:1 services with a Direct Support Professional, we would love to hear from you! There are so many options of activities that our DSPs can support to help people get out of the being cooped up inside and experience the community once again.
Some things that we have been doing won’t change. You’ll still see our staff wearing masks and we will continue to encourage everyone to wear a mask or face covering, even though many of our staff are fully vaccinated. We’ll still do symptom screenings prior to in-person contact and we will continue to be mindful of social distancing as we plan out activities.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Gwen Bonilla, your RPC, or one of our staff directly.
Curt Mower, MS, BCBA
Director of Clinical and Day Services
