Here is a Coronavirus update for individuals and families from DDS Commissioner Jane Ryder:
Life-Skills, Inc. is a participating agency in the Group Home Pizza Program.
This program was created by two moms (partnering with Domino’s Pizza) who wanted to show appreciation and acknowledgment to direct care staff at group homes by sending gift certificates for meals for staff and residents. Direct care staff are working overtime during this crisis, and this meal program gives them a break in preparing a meal and gives residents a fun treat!
Visit: http://grouphomepizza.com for more information on this program and to order an e-gift card!
Special thanks to Cheryl Ryan Chan and Aniko Houlihan Baglaneas Eves for such a thoughtful idea!
Life-Skills, Inc. continues to operate our residential and in-home support programs to individuals throughout Central Massachusetts.
Staff in our programs are using supplies conservatively and appropriately, but due to the public health emergency, we have increased precautionary measures and increased the Personal Protective Equipment used to continue to ensure the protection and safety of our individuals and staff.
Due to the demand, we are requesting donations of the following items:
*If masks are handmade, please include a note indicating what type of mask it is (N-95 cover, surgical mask, etc.), the materials used and any specifications followed.
If you have any supplies you would be willing to donate, pick-up of the items can be arranged.
If you have any questions about donating items, please message us or email us at email@example.com.
