Virtual Service Delivery
VirtualAccess and Job Club
In response to the changing needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ardmore will continue offering Day and Employment services online and via remote technology.
Below is specific information on how to access virtual services via VirtualAccess or Job Club; plus, guidelines and help for participants using online supports.
For Day/CDS and Employment Services
VirtualAccess, Ardmore’s brand name for our virtual service delivery, is offered to anyone receiving Day or Employment services. This service primarily takes place over a Zoom video conference call and offers opportunities for the people we support to learn, to stay active, and to engage with their peers, support team, and community.
VirtualAccess is offered Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Schedules for the hour-long, staff-led sessions are updated regularly and distributed to participants through Ardmore’s VirtualAccess communications.
To participate (receive log-in information) or for questions: Email VirtualAccess@ArdmoreEnterprises.org.
An example of weekly activities, which is adjusted regularly to accommodate the interest of participants, is listed in the chart below.
For Employment Services
Ardmore’s Job Club is a weekly virtual session open those receiving Employment Services. The focus of the weekly call is to explore the world of work and to engage in group discussions with a facilitator and other job seekers around various work themes.
