Caring for the Envida Community
The health and safety of Envida’s community is our priority. With recent news around coronavirus (COVID-19), we know you may have questions about how we can all do our part to keep the community healthy. We want to share the actions we’re taking to help protect riders and drivers — and what you can do to help.
A letter from our Executive Director
UPDATED March 27th, 2020
The continuing spread of the COVID-19 virus across Colorado and our region is impacting our everyday life. This impact is most serious among those envida serves in our community: older adults, those with underlying health conditions, and other vulnerable individuals. envida, as an essential transportation and home care business, supports our Governor’s “stay at home” order. We remain open to provide home care and transportation so that people can stay at home safely.
Starting March 18, 2020, envida has modified its transportation programs, including rural fixed route service, until further notice. We are focusing efforts on scheduled transportation services for necessary medical appointments including behavioral health; employment; and home delivery of food, groceries, and prescriptions. In addition to changing our rural routes for reservations only, we have expanded transportation service to Teller County for medically necessary rides during this crisis. You may request these rides through our website at envidacares.org or by calling our office at 719.633.4677.
Additionally, for our homecare clients we will be providing telehealth visits and our homecare attendants have been well versed on how to keep themselves and clients safe. For more information on telehealth visits, please call 719.301.6870.
We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will continue to take actions necessary to keep our clients, staff and community safe and healthy. Any further updates will be posted on our website envidacares.org or you can call us at 719.633.4601.
We continue to evolve our business to meet the needs of our community and support our staff, drivers, and attendants who serve our community during this challenging time. We look forward to resuming normal operations soon.
