Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made some changes to our available client services as well as our administration. Our top priority is the health and safety of our clients and care staff. At the moment, all care managers are working remotely and are conducting assessments and check-ins via virtual means. Our caregivers have been provided masks to wear for all shifts as well as for home use. Caregivers have been instructed to immediately report if they or someone they live with has any Covid-19 related symptoms such as fever and coughing. We have also implemented an electronic check-in system which prompts our caregivers to answer if they have a fever, exhibit symptoms, have been around anyone with symptoms or confirmed case, if they have traveled, or have been in a hospital or nursing home setting before they can clock in for a shift. If they answer yes to any of the questions, they are unable to clock in and are instructed to call our office immediately.
