Covid 19 – keeping you safe
The Coronavirus pandemic has meant that providers of home care have
had to make changes to the way they provide that care in order to ensure
that both staff and the person being provided the care is being kept safe.
At the current time, we believe that home care is amongst the safest form
of care for elderly and vulnerable people available and that it significantly
reduces the risk of infection transmission by allowing individuals to be
cared for away from other people.
We have implemented measures to ensure you or your loved one’s safety as well as our at-Homecarers whilst supporting your needs at home.

Personal Protective Equipment
All our at-Homecarers are suppled and use PPE or Personal Protective Equipment when supporting your care needs. Since the begining of the Coronavirus pandemic, there has been greater emphasis on the use of PPE as well as the type of PPE needing to be supplied and used within your homes.
Where appropriate, we have ensured that our at-Homecarers are instructed to wear face masks and visors or goggles. We have ensured our at-Homcarers adhere to the correct procedures in wearing PPE and disposing of used PPE in accordance to the clear Infection Prevention & Control policy we have in place.
Recommended PPE at this time includes:
• Disposable plastic gloves;
• Disposable plastic aprons;
• Fluid resistant surgical masks;
• Eye Protection such as clear plastic goggles or a visor.
Many staff will also wear plastic sleeves on their arms and foot covers.
Testing of staff
All home care and other social care staff can now access government test for Coronavirus. We have instructed our at-Homecarers that they should notify the team as to their symptoms and get themselves tested. The at-Homecarer will be removed from providing care from the time of notifying the team of their symptoms tilll the team are assured that the at-Homecarer has been given a clean bill of health.
The wellbeing of you, the people we support and our at-Homecarer team is paramount. If you have any concerns, please talk to us.
