What happens when the Center is closed but we are scheduled to attend?
The Center is typically closed for 7 holidays during the calendar year. We will communicate those dates to families during the intake process, as well as through our regular communications to families and caregivers throughout the year, so that you may plan accordingly. As the Center is closed, you are not responsible for payment. Similarly, if the Center needs to unexpectedly close for any day for inclement weather, etc., you will not be charged.
If your loved one is scheduled to attend on a day that the Center is closed and you would like for them to attend an alternate day that week, please contact Jay to see if that is possible. Rescheduled participants will pay the established drop in rate for that day.
What do I do if my loved one is feeling sick?
If your loved one is experiencing any illness or exhibiting any Covid symptoms, please call the Center (804.355.5717) and ask to speak with the Nurse regarding the status of your loved and one to make a plan about next steps.
Participants are financially responsible for the days they do not attend the Center due to illness.
