CarePartners Pauses our Adult Day Program
The Vermont Department of Health and the Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living has recommended that adult day centers like CarePartners close their programs for now. We will be pausing our service as of 5:00 pm on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
As recommended by these state agencies, we will re-assess after April 15th when we may be able re-open CarePartners. We will be in touch when we know our scheduled re-opening date.
For all of us, this is a stressful and challenging time. There are more questions than answers. We realize pausing our service may be very disruptive to our participants and their caregivers. Please call us at 527-0548 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need help accessing community resources.
Over the next few weeks, our staff will be reaching out to participants and their caregivers to see how we might be able to provide support. We will also try to keep in touch through Facebook.
Take care and be well!
COVID-19 Everyday Preventive Measures
- Person-to-person spread of the virus is thought to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Much is still unknown about how the virus spreads. Take these everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing “Happy Birthday” twice), especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Wash your hands afterwards.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.
- Shortness of breath
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms stay at home and call your doctor. Call ahead before visiting your doctor. Do not go to the doctor’s office unless instructed to do so. Anyone who does not have a health care provider can call 2-1-1 to be connected to a clinic in their area.
- Have needed supplies on hand
- Contact your medical provider to ask about obtaining extra necessary medications in case you need to stay home for a prolonged period of time.
- Have over-the-counter medicines and supplies for fever and other symptoms.
- Have enough household items and groceries on hand so that you will be prepared to stay at home for a period of time.
- Practice social distancing
- Avoid crowds
- Stay away from others who are sick

– Rose, participant
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.
