Covid19 - Bridge n Brighten

We are stabilizing in the COvid-19 pandemic

Let's make it safe for everyone

COVID-19 is a serious risk to the health and wellbeing of older adults, and we have taken strict precautionary actions to ensure the safety of our clients and employees, to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 virus. In doing this, we are committed to adapting our services in ways that allow us to reach those in need. 

However, loneliness and isolation is equally as significant as a risk to the health and wellbeing of our loved ones whom we can’t see in person or communicate with. 

Here are some of the things we are continuing to include in our daily work.

  • Health screens for every client before each caregiver visit
  • Health screens for every caregiver prior to the start of each day
  • A policy of wearing a mask for every client, every time
  • Keeping client care teams small and dedicated to specific settings or families
  • PPE protocol above best practice guidelines from Public Health
  • Client and caregiver access to our RN for any COVID-related questions, discussions, fears

There are many ways we can help combat loneliness during this pandemic. For example, we can get creative with tech. We can set you up with a virtual trip around the world! We can connect you with like minded people all over the world. There’s no end to what we can do to improve your life while you are not able to see the people you love face to face. 

However, we realize this is a stressful time for many and your everyday caregivers are often stretched very thin. We hope to offer an extra set of hands, caring ear to listen, and help starting or keeping up connections in key relationships. 

Lastly, we are part of a large network of caring individuals who want what we want. We want no one to have to be alone day after day. We can bridge resources and information to help facilitate the highest form of living while we are all getting through with so many challenges.
