The Private Home Care Agency Ltd are keeping abreast of the latest government guidelines for Covid-19 – caused by the coronavirus SARS -CoV2.

We understand that this virus has caused a huge loss of life and put the NHS under an enormous amount of pressure and caused great upset to people giving and receiving care. We know that you will be wanting to safe-guard yourself and doing everything you can to protect yourself from the virus.

We are working with you to reduce the transmission through established and proven disease control methods/measures such as vaccination, social distancing, observing strict hygiene measures such as thorough and regular hand washing and disinfecting of hard surfaces, regular washing of bed linen and towels on a hot wash, wearing masks and letting fresh air indoors.

The carers we introduce must prove they are up to date with vaccinations. They must also monitor themselves for symptoms and take regular lateral flow tests as people can be infectious with Covid-19 before symptoms appear. 

When clients are critically ill and receiving nursing care the carers we introduce must test daily and wear a mask at all times.

The self-employed maintenance men/gardeners/valets or house-keepers must also disclose their vaccination status to us and wear masks when they enter their clients’ homes and self-isolate if they test positive for Covid-19.

If any client or carer tests positive for Covid they must notify us immediately so that we can put in emergency cover for carers needing to self-isolate and speak to other healthcare professionals should a client contract Covid-19.

Maintenance men, house-hold managers, valets, gardeners and house-keepers must self-isolate and arrange for a PCR test if they test positive with a lateral flow test.

Covid-19 is likely to be part of our lives for the foreseeable future unfortunately, so our policy is to keep abreast of the guidelines and make sure that the carers we introduce take all the necessary precautions to work as safely as possible.

We are very happy to discuss any healthcare concerns you may have regarding Covid-19.
