Magellan Bulleting – November 2019
Caring for caregivers
While caring for a family member with a disability or chronic disease can be rewarding, it can also be quite demanding. Caregivers sometimes expend so much time and energy helping others that they neglect their own physical and emotional health. This can lead to caregiver burnout—characterized by physical, emotional and mental exhaustion. It’s vital for caregivers to prioritize self-care, and to reach out for the help they may need.

To All NAF MCCS Henderson Hall Staff:
I would like to clarify any misunderstanding of OPM’s decision for delayed openings as far as how we process that at Henderson Hall specifically.
When OPM states that there is a delayed opening, that means that we are open for business as close to our normal opening time as safely as we can. The delay allows for people to be late due to weather conditions. If you have no issues with the weather wherever you are then you would come in at your normal work time. Some people may try to get out, have to go back and wait or dig out, whatever, that may mean they are 30 minutes later than unusual, one, two or three hours later than usual or anything in between.
It simply means you have three hours IF NEEDED to get to work. Therefore, there is no leeway for those that don’t take as long to get in vs. those that do. Example: It took Sally 3 hours to get to work and she gets to leave at her regular time of 430pm but I came in an hour earlier than Sally so I can leave at 330pm – no – It is whatever it takes you to safely get to work but we are open for business at usual time to the best of our ability. You work, you leave at your regular time, whatever time it takes for you to get in. If it takes you over 3 hours and the delay is allowing three hours, then anything over the 3 is charged to leave. Example: Sheba to Roger – “I know we have a one hour delay today, but my daycare is opening two hours late so I won’t be in until xxx”. Roger to Sheba – “ok put in anything over the one hour as leave please”.
If there is something that is not understood, please contact me. I believe we clarify this every year and I just want to make sure to address in the event of more weather related issues going forward.
If you ever have questions on how someone will be paid, leave, or otherwise, please contact Jeany Paz 115, or myself at 307. We are always happy to talk out situations with you as everything isn’t always clear cut.
