Covid – 19 Update: How We Are Delivering Sustainable And Safe Care During This Crisis

Below is a list of actions we will be taking to help protect both our clients and carers.

The extra measures we have put into place to address this crisis To help ensure that our clients do not get sick as a result of COVID 19 we have implemented several policies and rules to protect them.

 

1. Hand hygiene

Before and after a client visit

Carers are required to wash their hands thoroughly with soap & hot water before attending a client visit and after finishing with the client. Carers are provided with their own towel.

 

2. Supply the right equipment

Equipment

We are continuing to supply the carers with gloves, aprons, hand-sanitizer, and masks.

 

3. Access to thermometers

Checking your temperature regularly

We have infrared thermometers for anybody wishing to check their temperature.

 

4.Consistent communication

 Communication between management and carers

We have increased our line of communication between our office management team and our carers. Our management team are now in the field delivering essentials to our carer outside the client’s house.

 

5. Shopping

Getting our clients their everyday essentials

Shopping - household essentials, food, and drink will now be picked up by our carers from the local supermarket.

 

6. Regular updates

Keeping the family informed

Regular updates will be sent to family members to ensure they understand what care is being delivered and to gain insight into the client’s mental health.

 

7. Encourage our staff to follow government guidelines 

Government guidelines

We are encouraging staff to follow all government and health expert guidelines. This includes keeping 2 metres away from others when out in public, washing your hands regularly, and covering your mouth when coughing.

Our main focus is to: - keep our cares and clients safe and to continue to provide sustainable services to the clients throughout this crisis.

- Mark Collier, Managing Director
