Overcoming Challenges with a COVID-19 Surge

NBC 5 ran a compelling story this month about Ability Connection overcoming the recent challenges associated with the latest COVD-19 variant surge. Its staff is trained to pick up on subtle differences in body language and behavior in group home residents to stay on top of COVID-19 infections.

Jim Hanophy, the President and CEO of Ability Connection, said, “They have just been exceptional in keeping themselves safe and the residents safe. Even someone who doesn’t use words to communicate, still communicates somehow. Our staff picks up on the subtle differences between them. If they don’t seem like themselves, or something seems a little off, then they will do an assessment and contact the nurse. We are able to get people taken care of pretty quickly.”
