In response to the growing concerns about the COVID-19, we are taking steps to keep people in our community are updated and informed about best practices to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and healthy.

We know it can be disheartening to go through the recent media updates and know that your loved one(s) with pre-existing health conditions are vulnerable to the COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus so it is important that you are receiving the right information.

Staying informed: We are keeping track of the regular updates from NAHC (National Association for Home Care and Hospice) and their resources page. You can sign up for updates from the CDC and for Google alerts to get breaking news cases in our neighborhood. At GYC Senior Care, we are also keeping track of the latest government updates on the COVID-19 case.

Precautionary measures: Make extra efforts to clean your hands as often as possible and disinfect every touched surface. Follow all preventive measures from the CDC report. Stock up on supplies, such as wipes, sanitizers, gowns, and disinfectants.

Practicing social distancing: Be extra cautious about the movement and interactions between yourself and seniors. At GYC, we are keeping track of the facilities that our caregivers work so we can implement effective strategies and are also minimizing external interactions.

Easy communication: You can connect with us through our website (www.gycseniorcare.com), or give us a call. We are ensuring optimal communication amongst caregivers. We send frequent hygiene reminders, including proper hand washing techniques and our emergency plan. We’re also sending periodic updates as we receive new information.

We hope these guidelines help you. We are confident that we will come out stronger.

We will be staying connected with our GYC family through email and social media outlets. We will also keep you updated on recent events in our community. We recognize the anxiety that the corona pandemic has brought, and we want you to know that we’re here for you. If you have any concerns, feel free to reach out to us.
