As many are aware, due to the COVID-19 national emergency, Adult Day Training (ADT) programs, including ours at NorthKey Community Care, were required to close on March 20, 2020 in the state of Kentucky. “It is unfortunate that due to the COVID-19 national emergency we have had to temporarily close our Adult Day Training programs in Carrollton, Falmouth, and Williamstown,” said Dr. Owen Nichols the CEO of NorthKey Community Care.
While guidelines have been released for how ADTs may re-open in Kentucky, at this time we have decided to extend our temporary closure of our ADT programs in order to protect the health and safety of our participants, their families, and our staff. Safety is our number one priority, and we feel that we need to be diligent in examining the reopening guidelines provided by the state of Kentucky. “While we are saddened that the physical doors of our ADT programs are temporarily closed, we are excited to be able to provide the majority of our NorthKey services, including ADT programs, virtually to clients and participants until we can ensure the safest possible physical environment for our clients, participants, and staff,” said Dr. Nichols. Our Virtual ADT allows our participants to come together to connect with each other, participate in activities, and socialize. Additionally, our Virtual ADT services are completely safe and all of our participants’ information is protected during the virtual sessions.
These are trying times for us all and we are looking forward to fully reopening our physical doors to our ADT programs soon. “Thank you everyone for your continued support as we work through these trying times together, while reducing the risks to our participants and clients, and ensuring the continued delivery of quality services,” Dr. Nichols said.
The majority of our services at NorthKey, including our ADT programs, are available virtually, and we are continuing to provide mental health, substance use, and development disabilities services during the COVID-19 emergency.
