Message from the President:
At LifeStream, we are taking every precaution to ensure the safety and well-being of all the individuals and employees we support. This includes:
- Suspension of our Day Support programs to decrease risk of exposure
- Rotation of our administrative employees to assure all programs receive support and individuals in our community-based residences continue to receive quality care 24/7
- Encouraging working remotely wherever and whenever possible
To help you stay current on issues related to Covid-19, below are links to local and national government agencies, as well as some documents we hope you will find helpful.
Our Direct Support professionals and program management team members are playing a critical role in assuring that the effects of this crisis have the least amount of impact during this time of uncertainty.
In closing, I would like to thank our employees for their continued dedication and commitment during this challenging time. I am proud to be part of a team of people so devoted to their work and those we support.
