CarePartners Resumes In-Person Services
On May 17, 2021, CarePartners Adult Day Center resumed in-person services. The health and safety of our participants, their families/caregivers, our staff, and the community are very important to us. We are taking a phased approach to our re-opening. In Phase 1 we will be serving up to 10 participants a day. After a few weeks, we hope to move to Phase 2 where our daily capacity would expand to about 18 participants.
To help protect our participants, staff, and others, we have implemented policies and procedures specific to the COVID-19 Pandemic based on the Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living’s Health Guidance for Adult Day Centers. Currently, only participants and staff may enter our building. Everyone must wear a mask at all times, adhere to six feet physical distancing requirements, perform good hand hygiene, and be able to contain coughs and sneezes.
To Prevent The Spread of COVID-19, The CDC Recommends
- Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around people who do not live with you. Masks work best when everyone wears one.
- Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others.
- Avoid crowds. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
- Avoid unventilated indoor spaces. If indoors, bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors.
- Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds (sing “Happy Birthday” twice) or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Get vaccinated against COVID-19 when it is your turn.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.
The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
How To Get Tested For COVID-19
If you think you have symptoms of COVID-19 do not go to a testing site. Talk to your health care provider about getting tested. They can refer you for testing. If you do not have a health care provider, call 2-1-1 to connect to care. For more information about COVID-19 testing go to the Vermont Department of Health’s website – Click Here

Being around other people is important to me and I didn’t have that before. Now I always have someone to talk to and help from caring staff. You have got to give CarePartners a chance!

It’s a big relief that my husband has Care Partners to go to for the day. I know their staff will be monitoring his health and meeting his needs. He’s very happy doing rewarding activities while socializing with friends.
