The current global health crisis is extremely stressful for most people. Increased fear and anxiety are common reactors and overwhelming emotions are felt and fought at time like this.

Hence, we are doing everything that we can to maintain healthfulness and safety which should provide comfort for our clients and their loved ones. We have reviewed medical and hygiene protocols with staff and are in touch with local health care providers and emergency management centers to ensure that we are equipped with the latest information and resources.

We are taking the following precautions:
Constantly monitoring information from Center for Disease Control and Prevention, state, and local agencies to ensure we are following the guidelines set in place from authorities.
Communicating with medical and clinical staff as well as current clients regarding the importance of adhering to all hand washing protocols and preventative measures including daily reminders.
Enacting visitor and client health and travel screening prior to allowing entrance into all facilities and company owned transportation vans.
