World Senior Citizen’s Day
Friday, August 21, 2020 - by Euro-American Connections & Homecare
It’s #seniorcitizensday, a day to recognize and celebrate older adults for all they’ve done to make our society better. COVID-19 made this year particularly difficult and dangerous for seniors, so let’s take a moment to talk about how important quality long-term care is and how home care can be helpful during these times
During the past couple of months, several high-profile cases of COVID-19 outbreaks in nursing homes and assisted living centers have highlighted some key risks with the facility care model when it comes to infection control
While facilities will likely always exist as an option for those seeking care, the COVID crisis has brought in-home care into the spotlight and demonstrated its advantages over facility-based care, especially in times when infection control is a primary concern
When it comes to in-home care, the benefits are endless, but a crucial component of elderly home care is to ensure the patient feels safe and comfortable. When seniors can stay in their own homes, most times they feel better mentally and physically. Home care clients receive more personalized, one-on-one care. Dedicated caregivers provide a sense of companionship and compassion not found in a group setting
At Euro-American Connections & Homecare, we offer a range of non-medical hourly and live-in care services and our safety protocols and efforts have a success rate of 100% of keeping our clients and caregivers safe during the pandemic. All of our safety protocols are regularly updated and have been created to ensure our clients that they are #SaferWithUS.
