What is CareBuilders at Home doing to keep clients and staff safe?
CareBuilders at Home is actively engaged in protecting clients and staff during the pandemic. We feel that the best way to do this is to educate about screening for symptoms, teach good hand hygiene, keep a clean environment and remain up to date about CDC guidelines and public health alerts.
CareBuilders at Home caregivers already receive training on infection control and caregiving. Caregivers receive initial, annual and other training as needed or required by the state, OSHA and other regulatory bodies.
With the advent of COVID-19, our agency has implemented our emergency preparedness and business continuity plans. We have a caregiver screening tool to check caregivers and clients for symptoms of COVID-19. The best way to keep COVID-19 out of the home is to encourage every person in the home to also follow social distancing and hand hygiene.
Caregivers are also following social distancing in their personal lives and taking precautions in the care they provide to all clients. Caregivers are supervised to ensure they follow company policies and procedures. Our supervisors are able to confer with caregivers using technology to answer any care questions they may have.
We are taking extra measures to keep caregivers assigned to the same clients to minimize contact. In some locations, live-in may be available.
CareBuilders at Home expects to continue to provide the same excellence in client service that has made the agency a leader in home care. We will work with families who have remote loved ones to ensure those you love are prepared at home so that you can have peace of mind. We will traverse the COVID-19 pandemic together with partnership, caring and honesty.
