Abilities in Motion's Response to COVID-19

Abilities in Motion’s Response to COVID-19 Abilities in Motion is continuously monitoring updates from the PA Department of Health regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). Our highest priority is to protect the health and safety of our staff and the people we serve. We want to ensure that the infrastructure of home and community-based services remains complete in order to provide the care that people with disabilities need to remain in their own homes.

 

We currently receive daily updates from the Department of Human Services and the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation and are working with both offices to ensure our compliance with all programs. We are also advocating for a strong governmental response to safeguard the stability of home and community-based services to ensure that the direct care system people with disabilities rely on remains intact.

 

In response to the virus, Abilities in Motion has implemented various changes to its operations to comply with recommendations and guidance from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

 

Our staff are working from home to remain available as resources and continue to deliver services via telephone, video conferencing, and email. We have temporarily closed our Conshohocken, Reading, and Wyomissing offices.

 

All community meeting groups are postponed until further notice. All public events through the end of April have also been suspended. We request that you do not bring any donations to our offices at this time for the safety of our staff and consumers.
