Caring for a person you love at home is challenging enough in normal times. But now you also have to know and enforce Coronavirus precautions.
A person on hospice by definition has a serious underlying medical condition. This puts them at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. You need to keep the Coronavirus from entering and spreading within your home.
Every Caring House resident has a serious underlying medical condition. Safety is a necessary foundation for our work and a top priority is continuing to keep COVID-19 out of our home.
Our safety protocols include,
- No shared bedrooms
- Ongoing staff training
- PPE (personal protective equipment) – supplies more than adequate
- Vigilant COVID-19 screening
- Careful visitor limits, with visits by appointment only
- Visitor PPE required (and provided by us if needed)
- Sanitizing at least every four hours
At our quiet five-bedroom home, our 24/7 on-duty caregiving professionals team with families to make sure that their loved ones have peace, comfort, support and dignity in their final days.
Caring House has provided a better, safer place than home for every resident and family we’ve served. This continues during the Coronavirus pandemic. We handle the care and Coronavirus precautions — while you can be a family and support your loved one and each other.
To help families who are caring for loved ones at home we’ve created a free Coronavirus precautions for home hospice care guide, based on our experience.
We rely on word-of-mouth referrals. Please tell those you know about our services, and share the Coronavirus precautions guide through social media or by forwarding this post directly.
