Alvita Care is Taking Action to Limit Transmission of COVID-19

To date, Alvita Care has had NO client and caregiver transmission of COVID-19 due to our strict protocols and precautionary measures. Our Administrator (Theresa Taplin, LMSW) and Director of Nursing (Antonella Valentini, RN, BSN) have worked tirelessly to ensure the following:

  • Personal protective equipment (PPE) is provided for all clients and caregivers
  • Daily screening of caregivers prior to a home visit
  • Education on prevention, transmission, and infection control
  • Adjust caregiver schedules to limit exposure
  • We follow strict guidelines of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Safety Protocols for Home Health Aides

Not only must home health aides maintain a safe environment while at a client’s home, they must also limit their exposure to COVID-19 while off work. Home health aides at Alvita Care are trained to follow strict protocols whenever appropriate, including:

  • Wearing face masks and gloves
  • Washing hands thoroughly and frequently
  • Taking temperature checks for symptoms
  • Sanitizing points of contact in the home
  • Refraining from touching the face
