The current COVID-19 crisis has dramatically changed Balance’s immediate and foreseeable programming priorities. Balance did not close because closing was not an option for the residents of our eight Adult Family Homes. All our resources are now concentrated on the safety and protection of the residents of our eight Adult Family Homes. We have directed all our immediate resources into that population to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents and staff. Residents traditionally spend their weekdays in our Pace Program. The day program model combines individualized plans and community integration at all levels. Over 95% of Pace participant time is spent immersed in community participation. The COVID-19 crisis does not allow our residents to leave their Balance homes. The daily focus and primary goal of current Balance operations is to maintain the highest quality of life for each resident. While they cannot go outside their homes and into the community or visit with friends and families they have grown to love; we are committed to keeping them active and engaged. Our immediate response has been to create a unique daily schedule and routine for each home, including a themed curriculum, learning, health and wellness activities, art and music, recipes and daily living skills. As we all feel the pressure of our own confinement and life restrictions, it is unusually difficult for our residents with intellectual disabilities. We are dedicated to protecting them as well as our staff. We are incurring significant additional daily costs due to staffing the homes, which includes expenses far above and beyond normal Adult Family Home staffing hours primarily to provide extra staff to facilitate these critical daily resident activities. The daily curriculum packets are also an added expense due to the creation and preparation time, resources, procurement of the supplies and materials time to distribute to the homes.
