According to a recent Syracuse University study, people with intellectual and develop-mental disabilities are four times more likely to contract COVID-19, and twice as likely to die from it.
Since the end of March, our Group Homes have remained open and providing service to residents. Per the Governor’s order, no visitors have been allowed in the homes. Not even family.
For some, masking up and heading to the grocery store provided us with our sanity while being locked down alone or with our families. But for our residents, July makes four months confined to their home. More than 100 days!
We continue to provide excellent service to keep our residents happy, healthy and en-gaged while sequestered at home. A variety of activities are used each day.
