Heart of the Valley Covid-19 Protections and Protocols
Because we work with a vulnerable population we want to be proactive and protective of our seniors, volunteers and staff.
The CDC, WHO and the Santa Clara County Health Dept. all have shared that “It is up to healthy people to prevent the spread of Covid-19.” Community spread dynamic is highly contagious, unpredictable and much is still unknown about how it’s done. They do know that it is most dangerous to those over 50 and those with compromised immune systems.
Heart of the Valley has asked our volunteers and clients to not participate in our program if they become ill in anyway. We are constantly disinfecting our offices and washing our hands. We have asked our volunteers to disinfect their cars.
Following the California State Mandate to shelter in place, Heart of the Valley has temporarily closed and suspended most services until at least Oct. 1st 2020, when we will reassess this decision.
We are currently offering four services to both seniors, 65 years or older in our service area or volunteers interested in helping them. These services are either a Friendly Caller, Technology Help over the phone, No-contact Yard work, and No-contact Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) pickups. If you are interested in one of these services, please call our office at (408) 241-1571 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and leave your name, phone number, and a brief description of your need.
We hope you all stay well and that conditions will again allow us to safely resume operations in our office between 9am-1pm Monday-Friday.
Until then we thank you for your support and understanding during this difficult time,
Glenda Cresap, Executive Director
What's Next from the HOV Board
Heart of the Valley, SERVICES FOR SENIORS, Inc. has ten dynamic and diverse Board Members, who provide the vision and support to keep our operation functioning at its very best. This year they have been challenged with selecting a new Executive Director to replace our current Executive Director, Glenda Cresap, who is retiring after more than 30 years of service. They made the decision to cancel our 33rd Annual Meeting due to the Covid-19 crisis, and instead conducted their Annual Meeting business online for the first time ever. It’s proving to be an interesting and extraordinary year, as the Board addresses temporary office closures and the further challenges that Covid-19 will bring. If you would like to join our Board, or would like to speak to a Member of our Board, please call (408)241-1571 or send an email to email@example.com.
