At Active Home Care, the health and safety of our clients is our top priority. In light of COVID-19, it is our goal to provide peace of mind about the measures we are taking to prevent the spread of the virus and protect our clients in these uncertain times.
Our team has implemented a reporting policy to ensure that all caregivers are able to identify risk factors and prevent the spread of the virus between clients. Our office staff has also been trained to identify caregivers who are at risk and will not send them to work.
Caregivers are being provided with additional protective and sanitation supplies for each visit. These include face masks, gloves, sanitizing wipes, and other disposable protective gear.
While providing caregivers with additional supplies, we have also implemented additional handwashing procedures. Each caregiver is required to wash their hands prior to entering a client’s home as well as once per hour while providing care for the client.
For clients who would like to reduce the number of caregiver visits to their home, live-in care is an excellent alternative. Live-in caregivers remain at the client’s home to reduce contact with others and provide all necessary care. Live-in care services provide the benefits of reducing risk for accidents at home, decreased chances of illness or injury, and increased socialization. Please reach out to Active Home Care if you are interested in a live-in caregiver.
Active Home Care is here to help you and your loved ones. If you have any questions about our policies, don’t hesitate to reach out.
