Our Preparation & Response For COVID-19
COVID-19 Safety Protocols and Emergency Preparedness
To our Caregivers, Clients, and Families,
The greatest priority of CareFirst is the health and well-being of our clients and caregivers. As our community continues to feel the impact of the Coronavirus known as COVID-19, we all face unprecedented challenges. As a leading provider of home care services in Birmingham Alabama, we wanted to share with you how we are taking this virus very seriously and how we are committed to everyone’s safety. We recognize our team serves a vulnerable population, and we take that privilege very wholeheartedly. As we continue to provide our essential services, potential exposure will remain lowest for those who can stay in their homes, with limited outside contact. It is our desire to work with you and your family to maintain this possibility for your loved one.
As part of our standard operating procedures, CareFirst has increased communication with our caregivers and management so everyone is up to date on the most current local, state, and federal agencies for information. We are trained on ways to reduce the risk of illness as each and every one of us all have the responsibility to remain vigilant about good hand-washing. While we at CareFirst continue to actively monitor the recommendations and guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, as well as our local and federal government we also recommend our clients to do the same as the days and weeks progress. This virus is creating many “never before” moments that we are all working through together. We thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your loved ones. If you should have any questions, please feel free to reach out any time.
Our thoughts go out to all who have been affected during this unprecedented event. We truly appreciate the first responders, government officials, and all of our health care professionals who are working tirelessly in our community and communities around the world. All of us at CareFirst consider it a great honor to have the opportunity to serve you.
