June 1st Weekly Newletter

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

Thank you to all the Front-Line Workers!!!

YOU

They might not have considered Homecare/Caregivers as the front line but we know that you have always been part of the front line and we are extremely grateful and proud of everyone that has continue to service our community. Without your care and dedication, many would have been left alone, no one to get them the necessities, no one to help them with personal care and so much more that you do for them.

Activities:

Help us come up with creative things to do with our elderly! What do you do for your clients?

We would like the caregivers to take 20 min of their shift if possible, to do creative things with their clients. We are the first and maybe the last person our clients see in the day or even week. Loneliness is a big part of their lives. Let’s take some time to show them that we are not just personal care or home care but show them that they are not alone. Examples of what we can do:

  • Scrapbook: All the pictures that they do not know what to do with, or have them just thrown together in a box. Maybe we can help them put it together and let them tell you their story.

  • Home Bingo

  • Cards: Many of them love to play cards. You might even learn a new game.

  • Go for a walk around the neighborhood: when weather permits.

  • Play Dough: it can help their hands mobility, coordination, and conditioning. Play Dough has the kind that you can mold and let dry (arts and craft).

Re-Entering the workplace:


While many Direct Care Workers (DCW) continued to work with Maximum Care during the Corona Virus global pandemic, many Participants requested their services be put on HOLD, while DCW voluntarily self-quarantined resulting in not working for many weeks. During this period, the Company had continued working and enduring safety for those Employees and Participants working and receiving services.


Although the guidance has changed very frequently and many who were not working were following many of those updates through local or global news, Maximum Care Inc. had sent many educational communications out through text, mail, telephone and in-person directives to both Employees and Participants informing and educating all with recent guidance’s. We had also instituted weekly teleconferences in both English and Spanish for two months three times a week.
