Our mission at Aging with Dignity and in the Five Wishes Program is to safeguard the dignity of every person, especially those who are most vulnerable. During this time of national emergency related to COVID-19, we are prepared to continue serving you, and we are taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe.
We are taking precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy:
All of us at Aging with Dignity are taking many of the same precautions that all American's are being asked to observe. We've had extra supplies of hand sanitizer in our office for weeks. When you receive a shipment of Five Wishes, you can have confidence that it is coming from a clean environment. We've limited the number of people working in our packing area, and we are in communication with our business partners (including printers and delivery services, such as Fed Ex) to ensure they are taking proper precautions as well.
We are also closely monitoring guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization on how best to handle paper products, boxes, and delivery services.
We share all of this to let you know that we take this seriously.
We are fully operational:
We are eager to respond to your requests and questions related to Five Wishes. As usual, you can call or email us and expect a prompt response. Like most organizations, we are following recommendations to limit the number of people working in close proximity. So you may leave a voicemail message for us during normal business hours. But, rest assured, you will hear back from us quickly.
Our prayers are with everyone for good health and safety. We are with you.
