As the UK Continues to adapt its strategic position and policy in regard to COVID-19, We want to outline Chosen Care Group absolute commitment to ensuring, we maintain the health and safety of our clients, care / support workers, Nurses, and staff.
The health and well-being of our service users, professional care teams and office colleagues is our utmost priority amidst the uncertainty that we are all facing due to the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We understand that for our service users and their family members these are very worrying times. We want to reassure you by sharing the measures we are taking to ensure the continued safety of our service users and colleagues.
Chosen Care is focused and committed on how we can help
We are 100% committed to reducing and minimising the transmission of infection. We understand that we have a responsibility to ensure our colleagues follow evidenced-based techniques to control and prevent the spread of infection, and that they continue to support our service users as best they can during this incredibly challenging time.
We continue to ensure all colleagues have access to reliable information to reduce anxiety and dispel any myths that may cause worry or distress.
We are ensuring that our professional care teams follow the below procedures:
Our Managers have reviewed and tested their business continuity plans and we continue to frequently review our staffing levels and service provision on a daily basis. In addition, all service users have been risk rated based on their vulnerability. We know who our most vulnerable users are and when appropriate we will prioritise their care.
If a care worker finds that a service user complains of symptoms, we have instructed carers to:
We utilize Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to safely provide care to service users that have symptoms associated with or have been diagnosed with the virus.
What can you do to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus disease?
The main signs of coronavirus infection are fever (high temperature) and a cough as well as shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
Being aware of these symptoms can help flag if a family member or friend may have the virus and need to self-isolate or seek medical help.
At Chosen Care Group we are actively seeking advice from Public Health England enabling us to prepare as the situation evolves, and we will make sure to update you with any changes to our plans.
During this time, we’ll be tirelessly committed to doing everything we can to support our clients and colleagues at Chosen Care Group. It is our duty to provide the best care when people need it the most and we promise to do so.
If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact a member of your team.
