In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Access To Home Care Services, now more than ever, is committed to doing everything in our power to protect the health and welfare of our staff and clients. We are continuously monitoring this emergent situation and are following the guidelines and recommendations from the NYS Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local health departments. We are actively providing education to staff and clients regarding COVID-19, including signs, symptoms, infection control and preventative measures, and we are circulating the informational packets listed below to all staff and clients. In addition, we are utilizing a screening tool to determine if staff and clients are showing signs and symptoms of COVID-19. If it is determined that a staff member or client is displaying symptoms at the time of the screening, he/she will be referred for evaluation by a medical doctor.
At this uncertain time when we are faced with difficult lifestyle changes and choices, we must all do our part to protect the members of our communities and slow the spread of COVID-19.
