Where Can Seniors Safely Go After Being Discharged from Healthcare Facilities?

CarePatrol, the nation's largest senior placement organization, is partnering with healthcare providers to counsel families on options for moving loved ones to safer environments in order to make room for COVID-19 patients.

"When it comes to our vulnerable senior population, being discharged from a hospital or healthcare facility and going somewhere safe comes with incredible responsibilities," said Becky Bongiovanni, Certified Senior Advisor and Brand President of CarePatrol. "There are important added measures we are taking to still get care for loved ones while our population at-large is also being told to shelter-in-place."

The franchise network has introduced virtual consultations with families, offering online tours of senior communities at the same time that those facilities are taking added precautionary measures to keep their residents safe.

"During this time of uncertainty, our locations are continuing to work closely with our network of over 32,000 senior living communities across the nation and we are supporting families making difficult care decisions in order to prevent a worse situation for a loved one," said Bongiovanni. "It is also our desire to support our healthcare workers who are the heroes on the front line.  Recently, CarePatrol locations have started donating hand sanitizers, face masks and meals to local healthcare workers. We will continue to support case managers with timely and safer discharges. We want to do what we can to relieve their burden by counseling families to find safer care options expeditiously."

And for families hesitant to move a loved one into a community during the pandemic, CarePatrol owners are working closely with ComForCare franchisees across the country to arrange for in-home care as an alternative.

The Cost of Keeping Caregivers and their Clients Safe During a Pandemic

According to the CDC, the risk for severe illness from COVID-19 among adults increases with age, with older adults at highest risk. That makes the health and safety of the caregivers who look after them all the more important. And it is the responsibility of those employing the caregivers to ensure they have the resources to do their job safely.

How COVID-19 Changed Our Business Model for The Better (IFA)

When COVID-19 started to infiltrate the U.S, we were faced with the same questions so many businesses were forced to address: How do we keep our team and our customers safe? And how do we continue operating to meet demand? The answer that was never in our playbook was to change our whole business model. And we had to do it quickly.
