COVID-19 Safety Protocols and Emergency Preparedness
Right at Home Winston-Salem’s greatest priority is the health and well-being of our clients and caregivers. As a society, we are facing unprecedented challenges presented by the coronavirus (COVID-19). As a leading provider of home care services, we recognize our team serves a vulnerable population, and we take that privilege very seriously. Potential exposure will remain lowest for those who can stay in their homes, wherever they may call home, with limited outside contact. It is our desire to work with you and your family to maintain this option for your loved one.
As part of our standard operating procedures, Right at Home of Winston-Salem caregivers are trained on ways to reduce the risk of illness. We all have the responsibility to remain vigilant about good handwashing. This cannot be overstated. Right at Home of Winston-Salem continues to actively monitor the recommendations and guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, and our state and local departments of health. COVID-19 is creating many “never before” moments that we are all working through together. We thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your loved ones. If you should have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our office at any time.
Right at Home provides essential in-home care services to vulnerable individuals - elderly and disabled clients - who rely on our caregivers to assist with their essential needs in their homes. Many are not able to leave their homes alone or obtain care elsewhere at this time. Both President Trump's National Emergency Orders and state and local shelter-in-place orders exempt essential services including in-home care providers.
