´╗┐Provider News
Dear SNPC Care Providers,

We want to wish you all a joyous holiday season and a very happy new year !

In this new year, we look forward to continuing to build the SNPC with you and broadening our service reach to a few more counties. Please continue to share information about our services in your circles and communities, as this is often how families learn about us...through word of mouth.

While we are seeking to broaden our service reach, we are also looking to expand the services & supports we offer to families. We are exploring some online options for families to learn more about community resources they might access for other supports and services that might benefit their family.

In addition to expanding services, SNPC will also focus on building quality of services and professional development for the SNPC Care Providers. Beginning, January 2018, we will be offering online training modules for SNPC Providers. SNPC Providers will be required to take all mandatory training modules by June 30, 2018.

We also encourage you to go to the care provider section on the SNPC website to stay up-to-date on information, resources and forms you may need for work. Lastly, we ask that you open and read the monthly Provider News. T his is a primary tool for our agency to communicate important information to you as it pertains to work. The analytics from Constant Contact show that only about half of the care providers open the provider newsletter. We would like all care providers to read the newsletter!

Accident & Incident Reports
It is important that whenever an incident or accident occurs either with the client or with the care provider, we must document the incident/accident and submit a completed form to the main office within 24 hours of the occurrence.

There will be an online training scheduled on completing the incident report in the new year. The date will be announced shortly. Stay posted!
