On 8/31/20 we successfully reopened our on-site day programs to a small number of individuals, with no incidences of COVID-19 related illness to date. Prior to reopening, we conducted extensive staff training and implemented new protocols and procedures to keep participants and staff safe, in accordance with state guidelines.
Safety protocols include: wellness check of each individual and staff member prior to entry, required wearing of masks and/or other protective equipment, safe distancing, sanitation stations and hourly sanitizing of our facility. As an additional safety measure, air purifiers with HEPA high efficiency filters are being installed in each program room.

All programs are taking place at our 56 Chestnut Street, Waltham facility at this time.
We ask guardians and residence managers to contact us when individuals are ready to return so that we can provide them with required documents, including our Illness Policy and Responsibility Agreement, for review and completion prior to return.
Our primary concern continues to be the safety of our participants and staff.
We will continue to run remote sessions Monday-Friday 10 am-2:30 pm for all of our participants.
Our Adult Family Care (AFC) program continues to operate by telehealth visits.
