Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.- With COVID-19 still raging across the state and the country, home care service agencies are facing, and meeting, their biggest challenge in decades, as they take unprecedented measures to both protect the most vulnerable in their community and still support them with everything from groceries to Alzheimer’s assistance and companionship.
Florida is now one of the nation’s epicenters of the COVID-19 pandemic, and now more than at any point in this crisis are home care services being requested. The vast majority of those who require home care are the elderly and their families, so the challenge for them as an essential business is many times more than that of any other during the pandemic.
“We follow the guidelines of both our local and state health departments, along with recommendations from the CDC and the WHO. We’re not going to take the chance with the people we assist in their day to day lives. The majority of them depend on us for basic needs and special care in some cases”, says Bruce Gropper who, along with his wife Judy Gropper, owns the Right at Home Senior Home Care Agency, one of the businesses at the forefront of the fight to protect the elderly in their homes.
Throughout the pandemic, they have added extra precautions even as demand for their services has gone up. The COVID-19 pandemic has created many “never before” moments, says Gropper, and they’ve had to quickly adapt to the emergency, without ever forgetting their greatest priority is the health and well-being of our clients and caregivers. “We take that privilege very seriously”, adds Gropper.
Right at Home Home Care Agency in Palm Beach Gardens has had to train their caregivers on how to reduce the risk of illness, by constant hand-washing, disinfecting everything from groceries to their clothes, and any tools they might use in their home care, along with obligatory face mask usage. They have also hired caregivers at a record pace, trying to meet the demand from seniors and their loved ones asking for help with delivering food and other goods.
They also offer a Custom Care Plan for each client, where they design the best Home Care In Palm Beach Gardens for their needs and have updated their plans accordingly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Normally the plans might include a comprehensive package that offers housekeeping, grocery and supplies delivery, companionship, and more, but many clients and their families have opted to focus on help with groceries, regular visits to monitor the health of seniors, and help them also with following health protocols, like handwashing and facemasks.
Palm Beach County has seen a spike of COVID-19 cases and even deaths, along with the rest of Florida, which has forced both local and state health authorities to impose several new restrictions, which include limiting the size of gatherings and businesses that can open. The caregivers at Right at Home, though, have not let their guard down since the very beginnings, racing to keep up with the demand for their services all the while making sure not a single client or coworker is infecting or at any risk.
Right at Home Senior Home Care Agency in Palm Beach Gardens offers services that range from simple housekeeping and shopping deliveries to physical assistance for cases of Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinsons. One of the most important services they can offer is companionship, which is an sometimes a forgotten, but extremely important, need the elderly need when living alone, especially during these trying times. Along with their individual services, they also offer Custom Care Plans that might include any of these services combined.
