Keeping Seniors Safe at Home

Our #1 priority at The New Jewish Home has always been senior safety. Now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, safety has become the center of every aspect of our operations. We have taken the following actions to ensure the safety of our seniors at home.

Senior Safety Infection Control Training

Infection Control Training

All Home Care employees have received infection control training, and will continue to receive instruction in compliance with the NY Department of Health guidelines. All new hires are required to complete infection control training.

Senior Safety COVID-19 Symptom Policy

COVID-19 Symptom Policy

In accordance with the NY Department of Health, our Home Health Aides’ temperatures are monitored daily. Any elevated temperature or signs/symptoms of COVID-19 will result in work prohibition.

Senior Safety Personal Protection Equipment

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The New Jewish Home provides Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for all staff. Equipment includes N95 masks, which offer greater protection than surgical masks which are the current standard.

Senior Safety Personal Protection Equipment Training

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Training

Our Home Health Aides have been trained on situational usage for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to maximize senior safety. Procedures are in place for double mask anti-contamination, for discard, for recycling, as well as washing procedures for goggles and face shields.

Senior Safety Leaving the House Guidelines

Leaving the Home

We have prepared and distributed guidelines for our staff when they take a senior out of the home. We understand the importance of leaving home for recreational activities such as walks in the park or for medical appointments, but the safety of our seniors is our highest priority.

Senior Safety - COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 Testing

Home Health Aides who also work in our facilities and provide home care are required to be COVID-19 tested weekly and are prohibited from working should they test positive. In order to be reinstated, they have to meet established guidelines.

Senior Safety protocols

Additional Safety Services

TNJH Home Care is offering its clients, as an additional senior safety measure, the choice to pay for private car transportation for their Home Health Aides. This private transportation service would give your Home Health Aide the ability to avoid using public transportation, thereby minimizing exposure for your senior and giving you piece of mind.
