The essential qualities of personal home care services on Cape Cod that allow seniors to remain at home comfortably and safely have taken on even greater value in these uncertain times created by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Homecare Choices always ensured that seniors needing personal and concierge care could count on trusted caregivers who are not only skilled, highly-engaged, and respectful—but also healthy and meeting the highest standards in safety and hygiene.
Now those concerns have become paramount, and the caregivers of Homecare Choices and Care… From the Heart (we joined forces in January) are following a multifaceted plan that underscores the importance of existing health and wellness measures, while also implementing new measures in response to the current situation.
Internally, for example, Homecare Choices and Care… From the Heart staff receive constant safety updates and reminders. We all wear masks and gloves, we wash hands constantly and use hand sanitizer, and we interact in ways that balance social distancing with the needs of providing care and comfort.
Our staff members monitor their own health and that of everyone with whom they have contact—and they remove themselves from client assignments at the first sign of any symptoms in their contact circle.
Each of our staff members is now coming in contact with fewer clients than usual. We also monitor caregiver availability to work flexible or extra hours to ensure our clients have seamless access to trusted, professional care.
These caregivers are monitoring the health of clients at a heightened level, checking carefully and often for symptoms of any illness. As always, they’re keeping a close eye on overall well-being, and engaging in ways that enhance clients’ feeling of contentment at home.
Clients and potential clients may reach out with questions, or for more information, to Peter Carey, Executive Director of Homecare Choices, by phone at 508-313-2529, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Homecare Choices
For those who haven’t heard, as of Jan. 1 this year we joined forces with Care… From the Heart, the Mashpee-based senior care agency with 16 years of quality care experience and a great reputation for client-centered work.
We had been gradually coming together as partners over the past several years as Care… From the Heart co-owners Rachael Hicks and Janez Hicks-Ruzzo became our best supporters and referrers as we built Homecare Choices. Both have joined us as part of our administrative team, and all Care From the Heart staff and clients are now part of our Homecare Choices operation.
Homecare Choices was founded by the North American Family Institute in 2016 to offer a new level of quality in personal home care services on Cape Cod and the Islands. Prospective clients may connect with us through the website and schedule a free consultation.
