**UPDATE** 3/2/21: We are aware that the extended appendix K date of 3/11/21 is fast approaching. DMAS has tentatively extended that date to May 1 , 2021 for telehealth (virtual visits). Additionally, pending CMS approval, they intend to extend parents being paid attendants to August 1, 2021. We will posts updates as they are received.
We hope this communication finds you and your family safe and well during this unprecedented time. We wanted to provide you with an update on our plans going forward. DMAS has allowed us flexibilities with our visits, enabling us to visit with you virtually during this emergency. We are so grateful as it has enabled us to “see” your faces, visit with you, and still maintain social distancing while doing our part to slow the spread.
June 15th is Elder Abuse Awareness Day! It’s important to keep a close eye on your loved ones because abuse can be committed by anyone: friends, family, care staff, or strangers. It is everyone’s responsibility to take action immediately if you think any type of elder abuse is occurring.
