Care Design NY has prepared a COVID-19 resources page to help you stay updated this this unprecedented public health crisis. We started working remotely on March 13, 2020. We continue to follow New York State disaster emergency directives to practice social distancing. All Care Design NY staff are working remotely for the safety of the individuals and families we support and our workforce. We will return to our offices upon the Centers for Disease Control and New York State directives and guidance.
We will be available and accessible to our members, their families, providers, and any interested parties. Care management services and supports, along with all other company business, will be provided via phone/ tele- conferencing, email, and video conferencing during this period of time. We have asked our care management staff to reach out to our members more often during this public health event. Also, please feel free to communicate with your Care Design NY Care Manager as needed. Otherwise, here is contact information to help you:
These temporary changes, all being done for the health and safety of our staff, members, families' and the general public, will not deter Care Design NY from remaining steadfast in our mission to assist individuals with I/DD to get the supports and services they need to live a quality life.
While we may be physically distancing at this time, we are committed to staying connected!
