Date: 16 March 2020
Technology for Living is closely watching the updates on the COVID-19 developments. The health of people using our services is paramount as we continuing to offer our programming. At this time we will be maintaining services.
Essential PROP Services: Our respiratory program remains active. We are continuing to operate the 24/7 PROP phone line and are available to take calls concerning your respiratory service needs. Our respiratory therapists will be continuing to make home visits as needed. Staff conducting home visits are symptom free. Visiting staff will be washing their hands and putting on personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect you. We will continue to ship essential equipment to our members to support you at home.
Non-essential Services: Our staff will continue to answer our PROP and TIL phone lines and will be available to respond to enquiries. TIL services will be in operation during this time, our TIL staff will be reaching out to you to find out if you have everything you need. If you are in distancing yourself from social contact, our biomeds can help you using Zoom video conferencing and have a face to face meeting with you.
We are asking our staff, program participants, caregivers to:
• Continue to call the PROP office for essential services
• Continue to call the PROP office to request shipment for essential PROP equipment
• Continue to call the TIL office to request essential TIL equipment and set-ups
We are requesting our staff, clients and caregivers to follow guidelines to limit the spread of the virus, including reducing social interactions, washing hands etc.
This is a changing situation; we will regularly update our website with information.
