Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order
Impacting Vulnerable Seniors
Due to the Michigan Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order, many nursing homes and assisted living facilities are not accepting new residents. However, there are still many seniors in our aging population who need to receive care. Governor Whitmer specifically excluded home caregivers from the Executive Order because homecare is a safe option available at this time.
Brianne Zieniewicz with Affordable HomeCare, is an expert in senior care. She wants our vulnerable seniors to know that homecare is still an option for those who desperately need care during these trying times. This means home caregivers are essential!
Homecare allows seniors to safely receive care without creating additional risk of exposing themselves to COVID-19. Facility based care settings will typically have one caregiver who interacts with dozens of patients every day. Home based caregivers only interact with 1 or 2 clients per day, which can drastically limit the risk of transmitting COVID-19.
Here’s how we are keeping people safe:
• All caregivers are required to take their temperatures before each client visit.
If they exhibit any symptoms, they will be replaced on any caregiving
assignment until they are cleared by a physician
• We are working closely with Homeland Security to obtain and maintain our supply of
masks, gloves, gowns and other necessary personal protective equipment.
• We continue to train and educate our caregivers on Infection Control Techniques
• Delivering household items such as toilet paper, paper towel, masks, gloves and
other cleaning supplies to our clients and their families in need
We will keep our clients and caregivers up to date on the latest COVID-19 news. We understand this is an unsettling time for many and we are here for you. Please contact our office with any questions or concerns. Wishing good health to all.
