COVID-19 Notice for McCormick Dementia Services
Notice to McCormick Dementia Services Clients and Caregivers
On June 22, 2020, and in full compliance with recommendations from the Middlesex-London Health Unit, we began to welcome back a very limited number of high-risk clients per week. We will continue to evaluate our progress and welcome more clients as we are able, while remaining within strict safety guidelines. We appreciate the challenges presented by our program closure and will be in touch with individual caregivers and clients directly as program spacing permits.
Please note that the safety and well-being of our clients, their families and our staff is our highest priority. We appreciate the impact that this closure may have, given that many of those in our care represent the segment of the population most at risk.
If you are a caregiver of someone with dementia at home, we are offering several helpful resources that are designed to provide the support you need during this challenging time:
Caregiver’s Corner – This new website contains helpful presentations and videos by our care support and recreation staff members that address personal care, recreation activities, and strategies for managing day-to-day tasks. We also feature a helpful weekly newsletter that highlights new content and updates about our virtual program offerings.
