Nov 16, 2020
7 min read
Many clients asked us if we offer COVID-19 testing for their senior family members. Care Indeed is pleased to announce we now offer COVID-19 tests and also flu shots for clients and family. We are living in unprecedented times and Care Indeed is committed to mitigating COVID-19 risks and helping you and your loved ones stay safe. Our clients are located in San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, and Contra Costa.
Care Indeed COVID-19 Home Health Support
Care Indeed’s team of licensed, registered nurses are now available to administer COVID-19 tests in the comfort of your home. We are committed to protecting our seniors and the most vulnerable members of our community via COVID-19 testing and home health care.
Our diagnostic COVID-19 tests enable our Care Indeed clients and tested family members to understand if you have an active coronavirus infection. The test procedure is simple. A swab will be used to collect mucus to be tested for the presence of the virus. If the result is positive, it will be necessary to isolate and take measures to prevent spreading COVID-19 to others.
Please remember, seniors are more vulnerable to COVID-19 complications. Older adults with chronic health conditions such as lung disease, heart disease, and kidney disease are especially at risk. According to the CDC, 8 out of 10 deaths in the US were adults age 65 or older. Let’s work together to keep our families and communities safe and well.
Best COVID-19 Safety Measures
There are several precautions you can take to help avoid contracting or spreading COVID-19. These include:
- Washing your hands
- Follow social distancing recommendations (6 feet apart)
- Reporting flu-like symptoms
- Avoid touching your face, especially your nose, eyes, and mouth
- Avoid unnecessary trips and travel, especially cruises
- Avoid contact with anyone who is sick and stay away from large crowds
- Keep hand sanitizer within easy reach and with you when you go out
Feel free to give us a call to schedule your COVID-19 test at (650) 352-4007.
Care Indeed Preventative Measures
Care Indeed has safety measures in place, including monitoring CDC recommendations, updates, and announcements. We partnered with ClearCare to conduct instant caregiver health screenings before and after each shift.
Ensuring our staff is COVID-free and family members remain Covid-free is an essential part of protecting our elderly population. Home is the safest place to reduce risks and enable your senior to live independently and comfortably. When our caregivers arrive at a client’s home, they disinfect high-traffic surfaces such as tables, sinks, refrigerators, bathrooms, and doorknobs. Care Indeed also has a dedicated response team focused on COVID-19 concerns.
Care Indeed Also Offers Flu Shots
As we enter the peak flu season, Care Indeed wants to protect the health of our clients and their families by offering flu shots. With the added risk of COVID-19, it’s essential to protect yourself and loved ones by getting your annual flu shot.
Keep in mind that symptoms of influenza and COVID-19 are very similar. Watch out for the following:
- Tiredness or malaise
- Sore Throat
- Difficulty breathing
- Aching Muscles
- Runny Nose
Call your doctor if you or your senior are experiencing the above symptoms. Remember, your senior has a weaker immune system and is more likely to have serious complications from the flu. A flu shot is the best protection against getting the flu.
Care Indeed will offer COVID+ Care for our clients who have family members that tested positive for COVID-19. More details are coming soon.
