We are happy to share that Rise’s center-based programs have been gradually reopening for several months now. Recently, we received permission from the Minnesota Department of Human Services for people to attend our center-based DTH programming for up to four hours per day plus two additional hours in the community for a total of six hours of service allowed. For our Adult Day programs, we’ve been able to reopen some locations and can support people for up to four hours per day on site.
We can accommodate a variety of schedules, preferences, and support needs, so please speak with your Rise team member to determine a plan that works for you.
For people who may not be returning to in-person programming or are returning only part-time, remote services are a great option to continue to work on goals and interact with friends. If you are interested in remote services, please speak with your Rise team member. Learn more about Rise’s remote services here.
Each person who returns receives training on social distancing, cleaning, and hygiene practices. We would encourage you to review our health and safety plans listed above and direct any questions you have to your Rise team members. We also continue to contact persons served and families about their plans for services.
Rise has also continued to operate a wide variety of programs during this time. People continue to work on our supported employment teams, make progress toward independent employment, maintain their community jobs, and receive housing and mental health supports.
We know that the continued limitations on services and changing guidelines have been challenging. Thank you so much for your patience, support, and understanding during this time. We look forward to the day when we can all return to Rise.
