Comfort Keepers of Toronto is taking steps to keep seniors safe at home

You likely have heard a lot of information in the news about the Novel Coronavirus, called COVID-19, in recent days as the growth of this virus rises in Canada and around the world. As a company dedicated to compassionate and healthy care, we have been actively monitoring the progression of the virus and guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We believe that home remains the safest place for you or your loved one, as indications show that the virus is spread more quickly in larger group or public settings. Possible exposure will remain the lowest for those who are able to stay in their homes with limited outside contact. For this reason, we feel fortunate to be able to provide care that can keep people at home and limit their exposure through personalized care and support.

And while most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a small percentage of cases become severe and may progress quickly, particularly in the elderly and among people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that we serve, we understand you may have concerns. For that reason, we want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the PHAC, CDC, provincial Ministries of Health, local authorities and other agencies and resources.

We are vigilant about our need to help protect our staff and clients from illness be it the flu, COVID-19, or any other communicable disease.

 

The following are some of the protocols and procedures we have in place:
