At Curant Care, we want to inform all of our clients, and their families and loved ones, about our response to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.
We recognise, and share, the concerns that many people have regarding the COV-19 pandemic.Our main priority is the safety and wellbeing of our clients and staff, and to make sure that we can deliver the high-quality care that we pride ourselves on.In order to achieve this we have introduced a number of measures and procedures across the company, and these will be updated frequently in line with the guidance from Public Health England.
For the majority of those who will get the illness, we know the symptoms will be quite mild, like a cold or the flu, however the virus poses a significant risk to those with underlying health conditions, such as respiratory conditions or compromised immune systems. We would encourage people who feel they are at risk to be especially careful in following public health guidelines. Of course, anyone with immediate health concerns should contact NHS 111.
The actions we are taking include;
All staff have been informed of the current available guidance in respect of potential self-isolation
The UK government have provided clear guidelines on the necessary social distancing measures required to prevent the further spread of coronavirus. Care staff are considered Key Workers during this time, all of our staff have been provided with regular information regarding best practice in relation to Social distancing. Curant Care are following these guidelines in relation to our staff.
This virus is thought to spread most easily when the first symptoms show, and during the next 2-3 days.It is also clear that whilst anyone can get the virus, its impact is most serious on elderly people, especially if they have underlying health issues, which include Coronary, Respiratory or Diabetes related conditions.
Curant Care already have strict standards on hygiene and infection control, and our guidance to staff reflects the most up-to-date advice during the Covid-19 outbreak.
The following are some of the key ways to help limit the spread of the virus.
Clients, Family members and Employees should;
Additionally, employees should also;
Whilst we are focused on continuing to deliver services to our clients, we are now conducting all meetings via phone or video conference. We feel by removing any in-person meetings this will help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Finally, looking ahead to the next few weeks, we are working hard to prepare for possible further disruption to our local community. We are putting contingency plans in place; in case we need to alter our working practices.
Whilst we are taking every step we can, none of us can foresee the exact course of events over the weeks ahead. However, what is within our control is how we respond and how we support one another. By doing this we can all play a role in minimising the impact of the current situation.
