Uncertainty about the health of your loved ones, especially during a pandemic is normal but can be reduced through proper support and care.
Caregivers will take care of cleaning and disinfecting high-touch areas of the house such as doorknobs, light switches, handles, countertops and tables/ desktops, phones, keyboards, bathroom fixtures etc.
Emotional support and socializing provided by Holly Services caregivers can also help your loved one from loneliness and isolation.
The letter from CEO of the Holly Services, Inc
The State of California issued a new regulation to health care companies, and it requires all health care workers to finish full vaccinations by September 30. If a staff has medical or religious reasons, they must submit proof of negative results of the PCR test to the company at least once a week.
Our goal is to meet clients’ expectations and satisfaction through providing home care services. We have strongly encouraged the staff to be vaccinated, and almost 90% of our care staff have been vaccinated at present. To follow the rule from October 1, we have discussed with unvaccinated staff how we guarantee peace of mind to clients and families. They agreed with the rule and keep COVID-19 precautions strictly. Any staff who disagrees will pause working with us under the new rule.
To follow the new vaccination regulation which the State orders, we confirmed the status, agree or disagree, of all the staff. Almost all have been vaccinated or agreed to submit negative results of PCR tests except for two of them.
All caregivers are taking the following precautions
- Gargling and handwashing when beginning each shift
- Washing hands often and using alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Wearing face coverings and adhering to social distance
Strict Guidelines and precautions taken when our caregiver feels ill
Fortunately, not one caregiver from Holly Services has tested positive for COVID. If a caregiver does not feel well, they are instructed to contact office immediately and given time off to rest. Only when their results comeback negative for COVID, they are allowed to resume work
When our caregiver fell ill with a fever, she/he contacted Holly Services to report her/his symptoms.
Holly Services relieved her of her/his duties so she/he could stay home and rest while also notifying her clients of the situation
Holly Services always follows instructions and regulations by the State. The current Statepolicy is here as of December 1, 2022.
