Services in the COVID-19 Pandemic

For over 35 years, SteppingStone has provided adult day health care at our Centers to hundreds of frail elders and adults with disabilities. During the COVID 19 pandemic services are delivered using temporary alternative services (remote care). Services will resume at our four Centers once public health measures allow.
Services are currently delivered by phone, through online programs and doorstep visits, as well as through delivery of materials, food and essential supplies.

Teams of Expert Clinicians

Care is provided through teams of clinicians working from each of our four Centers. All teams include nurses, social workers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, activities coordinators and other clinicians.

This team develops individualized care plans for every client then provides treatment on an ongoing basis connecting with participants multiple times each week, often daily. All Center teams are able to provide services in multiple languages.

The team strives to meet each client’s needs including health issues, medication management, food insecurity and social interaction. Services are delivered by phone, through online programs and doorstep visits, as well as through delivery of materials, food and essential supplies. Advocacy on behalf of clients with other health providers and agencies is often needed. SteppingStone provides support for family caregivers for clients with dementia through its partnership with the Family Caregiver Alliance.
