New York is well on the way to being fully open for business. Schools are back, indoor dining is back and the whole City should be back and running at capacity within the next month or two. With large numbers of people due back in the office in May, working from home will be coming to an end for many after a long stretch. Your routines have probably switched up multiple times this last year and the next weeks will bring yet more changes. For special needs families this could be particularly stressful.
Keep To Routines Where Possible to create consistency
We know that maintaining a routine helps offer calmness and consistency for everyone and helps the day run more efficiently. When things change – for example having to get up and out the door earlier for school again, we need to try and maintain consistency despite that. So even if you have to get everyone up an hour earlier to get ready, the activities should stay the same where possible. Get up, get dressed, have breakfast, clean teeth etc. Particularly with a special needs family member, you want to keep the stress of the unexpected to a minimum. Ideally start preparing for changes a week or two before they need to be fully implemented.
With many people looking to go back to offices and other workplaces, often on a different schedule to the one they were on before, you may have a new requirement for flexible help. You may need some wrap around care for your family member a few hours a day or evening now. You want to be sure that you can access specialty care from staff that understand and have the right experience. It’s not always easy to access the right staff so – as the number one staffing resource for the New York special needs community - we’ve tried to make it as simple as possible for you on Supportal.
