We are officially back open!

In response to the reopening of Oregon communities and the cession of the Governor’s State of Emergency declaration regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, Connections Case Mgmt. (CCM) is pleased to announce that our offices are officially open!

 

After 2 very long years, we are overjoyed to finally be here, with doors wide open once again.

 

Most of our staff are back in office full-time, however, we do have some that are still transitioning from remote working. If you need to meet with a particular staff member, we encourage you to schedule an appointment as they may not be available for drop ins.

 

Out of an abundance of caution, CCM staff will continue to wear PPE (masks) during meetings for the time being. Masks and hand sanitizer will be made available at the front desk for anyone who needs or wants them.

 

We are hopeful that our ‘reopening’ will be permanent but given that the state of the COVID-19 pandemic changes daily we will continue to evaluate our safety measures at the end of each month. All changes and updates will be posted on our website www.connectionscm.org and Facebook page www.facebook.com/ConnectionsCaseMgmt/

Vaccines & your personal support workers

This message is for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and family members or guardians who employ personal support workers (PSWs).

If you have PSWs supporting you at home, you can:

  • Choose your providers
  • Share your preferences with your providers
  • Ask if your providers are vaccinated
  • Ask for proof that your providers are vaccinated

It is okay to ask your provider if they are vaccinated, but your provider could choose not to answer.

Talking about vaccination status can be hard. Ask for support from a trusted friend, family member, or your case manager. If recruiting a new provider, it’s important to share your preferences and any qualifications, including around vaccinations.

If you have any questions, reach out to your Personal Agent (case manager) and they can support you. You can also check out resources from BOLI, including tips for employers.
