Keeping our clients and caregivers safe
We take the health and safety of every client seriously, and we are committed to making the home the safest place for you and your family.
During this time of uncertainty, we are taking extra precautions to safeguard your health. We’re also focused on keeping our dependable Caregivers healthy, so they can continue to provide you with safe, caring, quality home care. We are actively working to train all Caregivers in advanced infectious disease training. You can be assured that they know not to report to work if they’re sick and are equipped with extra equipment, like gloves and hand sanitizer (which we are regularly sending to them). And if you need additional resources for food and medical care during this unprecedented time, they can help you find them.
