One Live-in Care Providers Journey Through Covid-19 Time. We are Open "as usual"
Our Live-in Carers live throughout the UK and many are reliant on public transport.
PPE was sourced from many suppliers by care workers and client’s families.Care Managers called clients and care workers and conversations were had as to how in practical and acceptable ways, we would keep all our clients and carers supported. The attitude from all was a ‘we can’ approach.
Carers going to work in The Channel Islands have to self isolate in hotels before moving into their placement,
Nearly three months on, our clients have all received continuous care support with many of our live-in carers going the extra mile to ensure this happens. The families of the office staff have seen a room or corner of a room in their home changed into office space from 9 am to 4 pm. Instead of wishing everyone ‘good morning’ as we used to do when we came through the office door, now everyone logs on and emails ‘good morning’.With the Government still asking those who can continue to work from home to do so, we expect to be home-based for a few more weeks. Although the challenge in the last three months have seen us working as normal, just in different locations.
We have and are open for business ‘as usual’.
