COVID-19 Service Delivery Updates

March 17, 2020

Arden Shore strives to make home a place where everyone can thrive.

In these uncertain times, the health and safety of our shared community remains our highest priority. Arden Shore continues to closely monitor the recommendations regarding COVID-19 from health experts and leaders in our field to understand how to best minimize the impact of COVID-19 and maximize well-being of our community. As we face this rapidly changing situation, along with the rest of the world, we strive to remain agile and prepared to adjust in accordance with new information and recommendations as they become available.

Arden Shore recognizes the public health importance of physical distancing, but also recognizes its role in maintaining social support during this time of isolation. To balance these concerns, Arden Shore is leveraging technology solutions, like telehealth and video conferencing, and making evolving operational modifications in the best interests of our staff, the families we serve, and the community at large.

For those receiving therapy services at Arden Shore, your therapist will be reaching out via call and text to arrange for teletherapy sessions. If you have further questions, please contact our main office at 847-623-1730.

If you receive other services through Arden Shore or have questions about changes in service due to COVID-19, please contact us directly at our main number, 847-623-1730, or contact your case worker for the most up-to-date information.

At this time, we have closed our administrative offices to nonessential personnel. Please contact your therapist or case worker for any situations or needs you would normally visit the 329 N. Genesee building.

What can you do to help?

“In times of self-isolation, it is incredibly important to care for each other and support your community.

    1. Support your local food pantry, emergency shelter, or other community based organization to bolster their capacity during this time. […]
    2. Social distancing — we know you’ve heard it a million times, but stay home if you can, to protect those who must work, particularly, the people who are serving our communities and those most vulnerable to the virus. Even if you are a healthy adult, social distancing will protect our neighbors, friends and family members who are most at risk.
    3. Care for your neighbors, take care of your mental health. Call your neighbors and friends, share your resources, and take care of each other. […]”

Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is providing regular updates and has information readily available about the virus. Please stay informed, take care of yourself and your neighbors, and reach out for support when needed.

We’re in this together.
