Our Family Caring For Yours Since 1975
In response to the spread of COVID-19 caused by the novel coronavirus, we’ve enhanced our system of infection controls to support the safety of our clients, their families—and the caregivers who serve them. Informed by public health guidelines and best practices, Care Protect is designed to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the seasonal flu, and other infectious illnesses.
Care Protect is our system of enhanced safety protocols for better infection control:
Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our clients. Care Protect ensures better trained and informed caregivers, new more rigorous protocols and procedures, continually updated communications in this rapidly changing environment, and a pre-visit check built into our app—so no Care Pro starts a client visit without undergoing our enhanced infection control process.
Our agency has a trained support team available 24/7 to handle any urgent client situations.
Additional Safeguards to Support Safety
While the coronavirus is highly contagious, following key steps and safeguards helps to mitigate the transmission of infection while supporting safe care at home.
Restaffing Due to Illness
If a Care Pro is sick or has a fever, they must stay home—and we don’t penalize anyone for missing a visit due to illness. We’ll immediately notify you and begin restaffing the visit, and the Care Pro will be removed from any care visits and cleared to return to work in accordance with public health guidelines.
When arriving at a client’s home, our Care Pros are instructed via our app to wash their hands immediately before starting care.
When using gloves to help a client with personal care, Care Pros are instructed to dispose of them immediately after use.
We’re working to make sure every Care Pro has a thermometer so they can do pre-visit temperature checks via Honor’s proprietary app before each visit.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Requirements and Training
Since PPE is in short supply, we have a full-time team dedicated to sourcing and are required to wear masks and gloves when interacting with a client who exhibits any flu-like symptoms—and they’re trained on proper PPE usage by video. PPE continues to be a requirement for Care Pros when providing personal care, including bathing, toileting, or other activities where there could be contact with bodily fluids. We’re also initiating a new policy that Care Pros and team members performing Care Consults in the home wear masks.
With Honor, you’ll get great Care Pros— and a greater feeling of confidence that we’re doing everything we can to support you and your loved one’s health and safety.
