Unlike congregate settings, Allwel has a unique advantage to providing one-to-one care with our patients in the comfort of their homes. This inherently keeps our patients in a less risky environment with decreased exposure to COVID-19 than in a group or nursing home.
Service Coordinators and Registered Nurses reach out to patients multiple times weekly to ensure all of their care needs are being met and for the patients to have a calm, reassuring voice through this emotionally difficult time. As much as possible, it has been arranged for pharmacy and grocery deliveries to the patients’ homes to avoid community exposure. Staff have been provided ongoing instruction on standard and universal precautions.
