Our COVID-19 Coronavirus Protocol
for Caregivers and Education

COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus Info and Education

Rest easy with our 6 steps of COVID-19 protocol for caregivers:

  1. Required to take their temperature daily
  2. Complete Fitness for Duty / Lack of Exposure questions before each visit
  3. Wash hands upon entering client's home
  4. Wear face masks when working around clients
  5. Wear gloves when touching clients
  6. Sanitize frequently-touched surfaces

During the pandemic, it has become commonplace to hire new employees virtually.  We always meet with new caregivers in person at our office for orientation and training before we send them into your home.  We would never send a caregiver into a client's home that we have not thoroughly vetted ourselves.  In addition, we always meet with new clients in person before they start service.  Like our caregivers, our office staff take the necessary precautions to protect you and your loved ones.  


COVID-19 Education

As the number of confirmed cases of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) increases in the United States, health officials are advising people to take preventive measures and steps to prepare in the event the virus impacts their communities.

The health, safety, and well-being of our clients and their families is always our top priority. We continue to closely monitor information about the virus as it is released by reputable public health organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are committed to providing best practices for prevention and the most up-to-date information available.

At this time it is important to consider taking measures that may limit your exposure to your community, as well as learning about and implementing heightened hygiene protocols that can reduce your personal risk of contracting the Coronavirus and other infectious diseases. The current stance being taken towards prevention and protection has moved from a state of awareness to one of caution as more cases have been identified globally as well as within the United States.

The CDC has released information that those who are at the highest risk of developing acute symptoms from COVID-19 include the elderly, as well as immunocompromised individuals who would be more susceptible to the advanced stages, such as pneumonia and respiratory distress. In some instances so far, medical facilities have experienced higher volumes of concerned patients and skilled nursing facilities across the country are beginning to limit visitation and contact with the outside world to reduce the risk of person to person transmission within their vulnerable communities.

In an effort to support those senior citizens and people with weakened immune systems, our caregivers are able to provide necessary assistance with the Activities of Daily Living in the comfort and relative safety of your own home. SYNERGY HomeCare has increased training and awareness within our offices across the country regarding current best practices for preventing the contraction and transmission of community spread pathogens. We take every situation seriously, and are actively working with our staff and the available resources distributed by certain government agencies to improve the quality of service we can provide at this time.

Senior citizens and the disabled are a segment of our population that already regularly experiences periods of isolation due to climate and other factors, and we want to remain committed to our focus on providing compassionate care and companionship to our clients. Situations like this, where many schools, social gatherings, and local businesses are choosing to cancel events and close doors to the public, are critical times to insure that those who are less capable of taking care of themselves have access to food, personal hygiene, and a support system that can monitor their well-being and keep them more secure than if they were on their own.
