As in many crisis situations, people in small communities rally together in order to lend a hand to those in need. This pandemic has led to many Facebook groups entitled Caremongers; whereby group members reach out to one another to offer help and to lean on one another during these uncertain times. This is also true within the developmental service sector in Lanark County and, in particular those of us who provide residential supports (Carebridge, CLA and Tayside). It is very heartwarming.
Plans continue to evolve as we discuss how best to respond and move from preparedness, to containment (self isolation) to actively dealing with an outbreak. These plans as you can imagine are fluid, based on the newest research and advice being provided by experts in the medical field.
Trust that the plans are in place (and is being updated as new guidance is provided) and that if (and let’s hope not) we need to activate an emergency outbreak plan, it will be expedient and ensures the safety of the Individuals we all support and our respective staff members.
We truly are all in this together, and together we’ve got this!
