Safety in this Uncertain Time
We are closely monitoring the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and following the guidelines set by the Ministry of Health Ontario.
Arcadia Home Care is dedicated to the health and safety of our caregivers, clients, and their families and loved ones. We have made several enhancements to our existing cleaning and safety measures to ensure our clients are safe while our caregivers continue to provide the highest quality home care services. Here are some of the precautions we have taken:
We have provided retraining to our caregivers that addresses how to safely provide direct care, including putting on and taking off required PPE, and hand hygiene guidance from the following Public Health Ontario resources to support IPAC and PPE education and training for caregivers:
Arcadia caregivers go through a daily COVID-19 screening to ensure they are healthy and fit to visit our clients.
Personal Protective Equipment
Our caregivers use a surgical/ procedure mask while in the home, including while visiting the resident that does not have COVID-19 in their room
Strict Hand Hygiene
Our caregivers follow strict hygiene standards to suppress the spread of coronavirus and other contaminants.
We are following local health authority guidelines with regards to screening, testing and self-isolation procedures.
Stay Home, Stay Safe.
The best way to keep ourselves safe is to remain within our homes as much as we can in order to control our surroundings and carry out safety procedures. Our caregivers are being very vigilant in following the guidelines and procedures to ensure the well-being and safety of our team and community is very important to us. Now more than ever, the implementation of a caregiver is needed to help you care and provide support for your loved ones during these unprecedented times.
Our Care Plan considers the needs of the patient’s family members throughout the course of illness and afterwards.
This involves providing emotional support, respite for family caregivers, companionship, and personal care.
We work closely with other members of your healthcare team.
If requested, we will also advocate on your behalf when needed.
Arcadia Home Care can also supplement the care provided by your palliative and/or hospice health team.
Matching your loved one’s personality with a caregiver’s style and experience is crucial to maintaining consistency and trust.
Our home care for seniors strives to exceed the expectations and goals of your family.
You have 24/7 secure access to your online care log.
We will regularly review your Care Plan with you as needs change.
