As elsewhere in Europe, lockdown has once again given rhythm to the daily life of the French people for several weeks. However, all the OSE teams remain mobilized to ensure the continuity of their missions. Overview of the present arrangements:
At the Elio Habib Health Center and at the Medico-Psycho-Pedagogical Center, consultations by video or telephone are offered for people who cannot commute.
Children’s homes, educational services and foster families provide educational support for the children in care.
Institutions and services for children and adults are open, making it possible to maintain care, support and activities to help people with disabilities.
Disabled workers continue to work in their workshops.
The respite platform supports people with disabilities and their (relatives) caregivers in difficulty as they face the health crisis.
In order to allow continuity of care for people with Alzheimer’s disease and respite for the caregivers, the day care centers remain open.
For the Holocaust survivors
Activities continue remotely. Digital newsletters are sent daily, telephone follow-up is organized, as well as cultural activities via the Zoom app.
Facing the ongoing health crisis, OSE employees and volunteers are more committed than ever to helping vulnerable people.
