Skill Creations Inc. continues to be committed to the care of the individuals that we serve. At this time we have limited all traffic in and out of our facilities to only what is urgent and necessary. We continue to screen all staff and anyone coming in and out of buildings. Our staff are working to provide activities in the facilities and keep your loved ones safe and healthy. We are so thankful for our staff who all truly care about those they are serving. If you have any questions about COVID-19 or a question regarding your loved one, please feel free to call and speak to an administrator at your facility.
At Skill Creations Inc., we continue to follow the news , recommendations and guidelines for COVID-19 for all of our Divisions (ICF, Community Operations and Child Development). After today (Friday March 20, 2020) all of our ICF and Community Operations Day Programs will be closed. Flexibilities for Innovations Waiver recipients are in place so that Day Supports and Community Networking can be provided in homes so that those we serve can continue to receive care and support. There are flexibilities for other services and regulations for Innovations Waiver recipients as well. If you have a concern or would like further information on I- Waiver Flexibilities, please contact your QP.
Our number one goal at Skill Creations Inc. is the health, safety and wellbeing of those that we serve. We have taken many steps in planning for the COVID-19 Pandemic. We have a COVID-19 Planning Team that is led by our Chief Medical Professionals. We have developed COVID-19 Response Plans for all of our services and we are implementing those step by step. Our administration is a part of daily meetings and updates with state associations and state officials to stay current with the moment to moment changes.
We are also closely following the recommendations of the CDC and the recommendations and Executive Orders that have been provided by the state of North Carolina. Our employees are taking additional infection control training and they are self-screening their health daily before entering a facility, office or working with anyone we serve. Daily memos are being given to all staff with updates and implementation of new guidelines and rules as they are developed. We are limiting all outside contact as much as has been recommended for our settings at this time. We are making many temporary changes in order to limit exposure while still trying to allow as much independence and regular daily routine as possible.
We will continue to post periodic updates on our website as we have new information so please check back every few days!
