Hands and DSO NER services are open and operational during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure continued support to our most vulnerable clients and families.
DSO NER continues to offer assessments and staff are answering our phone at 1-855-376-6376 and email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help protect our clients, our employees and the public, we are actively screening any clients and visitors to ensure they are not presenting any symptoms, have not been in contact with a sick individual and have not recently travelled outside of Canada. Anyone answering yes to the screening questions will be offered online/telephone counselling.
We recognize that some of the service agencies we work with to serve clients have made the decision to limit client sessions to an online-only format. At this time, Hands remains open for in-person assessments, as long as the client meets the requirements of our screening process.
