Stay Home Stay Safe

Stay Home Stay Safe Update


As you are probably aware by now Governor Whitmer has signed the “Stay Home Stay Safe” executive order. This order will be in effect till May 15th.

The services Assured Nursing provides to the elderly community fall under the category of essential services; therefore, we will continue to staff cases as we always have. Our staff are following all guidelines set forth by the CDC, checking temperatures daily and prior to the start of shifts. They are reporting to us immediately if they have any signs/symptoms of COVID-19, or have been around anyone that requires quarantine. We have dropped off masks at client homes and are encouraging clients and staff to use, although judiciously, they are not easy to get!

We are staying in close communication with our staff to do everything in our power to alleviate their fears and concerns and keep them healthy and able to work. They are traveling with letters that identify them as essential people, so they should not have any problems being on the road. We are in unchartered territory regarding this pandemic and hope to cover all shifts, without interruption in services. Without knowing how this virus is going to spread and effect health care employees we are asking families to have a backup plan in place, in the event a caregiver cannot work and there is no one to cover their shift.

I know this is a very trying, stressful time with a lot of uncertainty surrounding the future. Please continue to practice all the guidelines set forth by the CDC that we have previously emailed and/or sent to all client homes.
