We have an excellent team of Home Care Aides that have been fully instructed on the CDC’s, DPH’s, and the WHO recommendations for working with clients to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are honored to be able to provide services that can help seniors limit their exposure to the virus and receive individualized support and care.
