The Corona Virus (COVID-19) has become a global pandemic, the likes of which most of us have not seen in our lifetimes. It has spread faster than any of us imagined and has proven to be a challenge to contain. Unfortunately, it would appear that seniors and those with underlying medical conditions are the most vulnerable.
During trying times like this, when so many of us are 'socially distancing,' and are feeling isolated and alone, it can often be rather challenging to navigate through our day to day activities. We must stay at home and not get close to others, and yet so many of us may be dependent on others for the most simple of tasks.
Many of you may ask, "Should I risk going to the store? Should I use public transportation? What will happen if I run out of food or other essentials?" Or, more simply, "I wish I had someone to keep me company."
At Talem Home Care, we understand these concerns and are ready to help. Whether you need assistance with personal care, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, or shopping and errands, we have a team of dedicated employees that can assist you. There truly is no need to panic or to feel unsafe or alone. Our offices have special programs for Alzheimer's and Dementia clients, as well as services to assist our Veterans. Together, we can get through this, and we can provide some companionship as well!
Talem offices are all equipped with PPE (personal protective equipment), and our employees are trained extensively on the use of this equipment and the prevention of the spread of infection. We are carefully screening our employees every day prior to their assignment. Our leadership teams are up to date on the latest information available on COVOD-19.
If you believe you may need some additional help, give us a call. We are happy to discuss all the various options with you and answer all of your questions. We want to be a resource for you and your chosen partner in remaining healthy and independent at home!
