To our valued Clients and Families:
We want you to know that in this challenging time of uncertainty, the safety and health of clients and employees are always our top priority for us at At Your Side Home Care. Therefore, we are actively monitoring developments as the COVD-19 situation continually evolves to ensure that we have accurate information to guide us including updates and procedures issued from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources.
Currently, for those above age 60 and with compromised immune systems, their recommendation is that the safest place to be is at home. It is recommended that you have extra supplies of medications and basic necessities on hand. And everyone is asked to follow proper handwashing techniques. Please see the CDC website listed below for more detailed information.
At At Your Side Home Care, all of our caregivers are aware of practicing proper infection control, staying home when sick, and staying home if exposed to a family member has been recently ill. All of our caregivers know to immediately communicate these situations to us. These are already established safety practices not new to our staff. We have communicated the importance of following both existing and new protocols in light of this outbreak. For clients we serve who reside in facilities or other group-type living situations, we will work closely with the facility on any protocols, exchange of information, or other guidelines as necessary.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us. I want to assure you that we are doing our best to protect your loved ones and our staff and will continue to update you as necessary if more or different information becomes available.
