We wanted to update you on McClendon Center’s Covid-19 response efforts and to thank all of you who have expressed care and concern. We appreciate you.
We have continued to provide care through telehealth services in order to provide social distancing. At the start of this crisis we deployed this method more broadly, fully expecting to not be compensated for it. We have found many clients enjoy this, even look forward to our outreach, as the days of isolation accumulate. Late last week it was announced that telehealth could possibly be reimbursed as a treatment under the circumstances. We are now changing our coding in order to attempt this change. Nothing, however, can replace the in person relationships that are so meaningful for our clients. Regardless, we will continue to provide this type of care as long as we can with the resources we have.
We are grateful for our professional and dedicated staff who have worked to overcome every obstacle. We have outreached 993 clients in the past week. An accomplishment we are very proud of. Also notable, 7 clients have been tested for Covid-19. While 2 test results are still pending, 5 have come back negative. We believe our immediate actions in the early stages of this crisis protected both clients and staff.
We want to remind you that we have moved our annual event the Art of Transformation from May to November. We will update you with details as they come and look forward to seeing you all there.
Thank you to all of you that made a donation over the past week. Your continued support is what allows us to continue our work. We are grateful to you for helping us to continue our mission with the least possible interruptions. Thank you.
PS At this time the best way to show support is through a generous donation
