Here is a list of links to activities, information, resources to make the social isolation less stressful.
St. John’s Community Care is focused on continuing to care as we focus on keeping those we serve and our staff as safe as we can. While we cannot currently care for participants in our Adult Day Centers, we are contacting those families regularly to support them emotionally and to determine if there are other ways we can help.
We remain available to anyone who needs advice on dementia care or caregiving issues. Because our staff are now working remotely, callers will have to leave a voice mail at 618-344-5008, but those calls will be returned. Likewise, contacting us through our website (www.stjohnscc.org), which now includes a “live chat” function will generate a return call or email.
