Help for Seniors During COVID19

Hi everyone, 
COVID-19 Response Site Info In response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 landscape, Champlain Community Support Network has put together a dedicated COVID-19 Response Site where vulnerable and isolated seniors can request community support services that are currently available in our region. The site is available in both English and French and focuses on four key services: · Grocery and pharmacy delivery · Transportation to medical appointments · Telephone safety checks · Meals on Wheels Services can be requested by residents as well as service providers. Individuals will complete a simple online request form indicating the needed services and their location. Requests for service will be received by a central intake for the full region, and then routed to the appropriate local CSS agency based on the location of the client. We believe this will support community members and our health and community partners to quickly identify and refer to the services they require during COVID-19 for vulnerable seniors and adults living with a physical disability. Soon, the site will be expanded to allow for volunteers to sign up for specific roles during this heightened time. Their application will be routed to their local community agency after a high level screening, and they will be efficiently trained and onboarded to help our clients.

Thanks
