At Kind, our mission is to help seniors live independently at home for as long as possible and avoid unnecessary hospital visits. I believe this mission is more important now than ever before. For many of our seniors home is the safest place during the COVID-19 pandemic. That being said, I want to share what Kind is doing to provide safe and effective care during this time:
Kind is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information. As this situation continues to develop our protocols are being adjusted as needed. We are following updates and procedures from the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts, the MA Dept. of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and local and county authorities. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
We believe that home remains the safest place for you or your loved one, as indications show that the virus is spread more quickly in facilities and larger group or public settings. Possible exposure will remain the lowest for those who are able to stay in their homes with limited outside contact. For this reason, we feel fortunate to be able to provide care that can keep people at home or limited exposure in group settings through personalized care and support.
Many of our clients are especially at risk, given they are older adults or have underlying health issues. We are vigilant about our need to help protect these individuals from illness be it the flu, COVID-19, or any other communicable disease. These measures are not new to us as we seek to minimize risk regularly for our clients, regardless of an outbreak such as this new coronavirus.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me personally. We have an amazing team and incredible clients, and together we will get through this challenging time.
