Dear Personal Care Clients:
As the COVID-19 pandemic has continued, our protocols remain in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and the local Department of Public Health guidelines. At this time no Personal Care Employee has tested positive for COVID-19. We are grateful for this and will continue our diligence in our practices to ensure client and employee safety.
Caregivers will be asked to continue using a mask when delivering direct client care. When they are outside of a six-foot distance from client’s, masks can be removed. Any client who is hospitalized or receives an outpatient procedure will be asked to wear a mask for 7-days upon their return, unless they have received a negative COVID-19 test. As summer vacationing and travel resumes, we are asking staff who have traveled out of state to receive a COVID test upon return. We will continue to ask that health declaration forms be completed, and staff report any exposures of symptoms that they are experiencing. In the spirit of transparency, we will continue to provide you with updates when needed. There have been no additional COVID-19 cases reported within the communities we work in.
To date we have raised a little over $10,000 for our Employee Appreciation Fund. We are short of our $20,000 goal and are hopeful that more people will contribute to the frontline healthcare heroes that have made such an incredible difference in the lives of the at-risk population we serve. If you have any questions about how to donate please let me know.
As continuing care retirement communities begin their gradual re-openings, we will continue to work closely with management teams to ensure the highest level of safety possible.
These are challenging times in our society right now, and it is through the continuation of support and kindness for one another that leave us optimistic and encouraged. As our conversations and dialogues shift, we will continue to keep you updated as best we can.
If you have any questions, concerns, or comments please do not hesitate to contact me at 404-373-2727 or by email.
