A Special Appreciation

Thank you to the CPLF staff for the work they’re doing to support our most vulnerable individuals during this unprecedented time. I have been extremely impressed with the innovation and speed at which CPLF staff have altered all programming and outreach to support those we serve. Together, CPLF has successfully adapted to a pandemic of epic proportions and now we must remain diligent until life can return to normal.

Please read through the following resources and notices for up-to-date information on how our organization is prioritizing the safety of our community.

Together, we will get through this. –

Covid Tips & Tricks

How to Take a Rapid Test

With current circumstances, Covid-19 test appointments are getting more and more difficult to set up. If there are no appointments available, you may take an at home rapid antigen test that you may purchase at a local drug store. For more information on how to correctly do a test at home, watch the video tutorial.

Pandemic Resources

CPLF adheres to all AHS pandemic guidelines. In addition, we have the following CPLF-specific pandemic protocols.

The services provided by CPLF are considered an Alberta essential service and we are committed to meeting this challenge together. CPLF has re-tooled quickly to meet the demands of this new environment we find ourselves in with the following Pandemic Response measures:

Administrative Offices:
Closed to the public. Administration staff are encouraged to work from home whenever possible. Lifestyles Bistro & Catered by Lifestyles: Closed until further notice

On-site group activities and programs:
Cancelled until further notice (includes bingo, dances, art classes, etc.). Remote activities and services will be offered in their place (see below) CPLF Client Services

Day Programs:

Support Staff and clients are to no longer enter each other’s homes unless vitally necessary. Vitally necessary supports are to continue in homes for those clients who are bed ridden, complex needs, and/or guardians working in an essential service such as health care. There may be other extenuating circumstances.

Driving:

Staff can transport clients in their car while observing Pandemic Driving Planned Positive Procedure Protocol.

Reporting COVID-19 and Limiting Movement:

Report any confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 impacting clients or CPLF staff to your Case Manager and/or CPLF Human Resources Manager at hr@cplf.ca. Personal

Protective Equipment (PPE)

The basic understanding is that everyone is to be considered asymptomatic with a potential to spread the virus.

Distribution:
If CPLF staff, clients, and/or guardians need any PPE then one needs to contact their Case Manager with a list of items to be issued or refilled. CPLF offers masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, shields, gowns, and thermometers. Upon your request we will co-ordinate a pickup time for you to receive your PPE.

Vaccinations:
Details are becoming clear on when our CPLF stakeholders will be eligible to receive vaccines. According to Alberta Health Services, CPLF staff will be categorized as Group 2C, which is set to receive the vaccines from April to September. We will continue to post updates as more information becomes available.
