The health and wellbeing of Clients and Caregivers are of paramount importance. As new information related to COVID-19 is being reported on a regular basis, we endeavor to maintain the same pace in our learning, response, and communication.
All Care has taken the following steps in response to COVID-19:
We have equipped all of our offices with personal protective equipment for care providers who are assisting clients experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory illnesses.
Care providers will not report to work if they have confirmed or suspected COVID-19. They must be fever-free for at least 72 hours and wait 7 days since symptoms first appeared before returning to work.
We have provided our care providers with information regarding virus transmission precautions and we are reinforcing proper procedures for preventing the spread of illness. We will continue to forward information to them as we learn more about the virus.
We have implemented procedures for ensuring anyone entering our offices does not have a fever and we are diligent in sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces and supplies.
We are carefully monitoring the situation and staying up-to-date on recommendations from the Oregon Health Authority, WHO, and CDC.
As a leading provider of in-home care to the communities we serve, we take very seriously our role in these difficult times. We have continued to welcome new Clients and we are fortunate to have maintained a strong, vast workforce of qualified Caregivers to help us meet the growing needs of our community.
We are honored to be of service to our community members in the safest environment, their own homes.
