I am very sad to share that our office lost one of our dedicated staff members last week. We are very thankful for the short time that Beth was a part of our IVC team. She approached her work with a deep heart for service, and she will be greatly missed. Our hearts and our prayers go out to her loving family as they cope with this untimely and painful loss. Rest In Peace, Beth.

A happy story for the week...
We were able to drop off some food to one of our clients earlier this week. She was quite nervous about the pandemic and also worried about running out of food. When our volunteer stopped at the store for some items on her list, she was given a free bouquet of flowers. Our client was so overwhelmed by the help, and the flowers, that she broke down in tears. So very glad we could help, and so thankful for those who keep helping.

Scammers are out in force and trying to take advantage of people's fears surrounding the virus. Some are spoofing phone numbers to make it seem like they're calling from the health department, while others are reaching out online to offer free vaccines, testing or supplies.

No vaccine for COVID-19 is currently available, and these people are after your personal information or money. We have collected some tips and best practices to help keep you and your loved ones safe.

Remember that your best source of health information on the coronavirus is the CDC (cdc.gov).

The Federal Trade Commission also has information on scams surrounding the virus. https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/features/coronavirus-scams-what-ftc-doing

Help plan for future needs –

Whether you use transportation or not, OnHand is asking older adults and people with disabilities to provide feedback to understand how well existing transportation services in Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties match the needs of residents.

OnHand will look for opportunities to increase coordination between services so people can get to medical services, work, and other daily activities.

Please take this short survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SEMichiganRiderSurvey

AAA 1-B offers transportation assistance to older adults and adults with disabilities via our MyRide2 program. Services include arranging transportation from start to finish and travel training services.
Transportation options can be requested directly through the myride2 website at https://www.myride2.com/ or by calling the toll-free number at (855) 697-4332.
