We take your health seriously.
To promote the health and safety of our clients and Caregivers, and to mitigate the risk of spread and exposure of COVID-19, we have put into place a number of safety protocols including daily COVID-19 screeners.
Daily COVID-19 Screener
Nurse Next Door Caregivers go through a daily COVID-19 screener to ensure they are healthy and able to visit our clients.
If a Caregivers has been exposed to COVID-19, they will self-isolate for 14 days and will not be put into the home of our clients.
Strict Hand Hygiene
Nurse Next Door Caregivers follow strict hygiene standards to suppress the spread of coronavirus and other contaminants.
Personal Protective Equipment
To reduce the chance of infection, our Caregivers are equipped with appropriate personal protective equipment.
How we’re staying ahead of COVID-19
To ensure we are doing all we can in this unprecedented time, Nurse Next Door has assembled a Clinical task Force with representation from all parts of our system. We are constantly monitoring the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organisation (WHO) and, more specifically in Australia, the Federal Department of Health, to stay on top of new developments. We are also in continuous communication with both our clients and our Caregivers to keep them up to date on the most recent developments in the pandemic and to provide direction to our caregivers on how best to deliver care in accordance with state and local health authorities.
The number one need we’ll all have is food. Our Caregivers can go to the grocery store for you, and help you cook delicious and nutritious meals.
Do you need medications from the pharmacy? Get a Nurse Next Door Caregiver to pick it up for you. We also provide medication reminders to ensure you stay your regular healthy self.
One thing easily overlooked in times of crisis is the need for social interaction — for companionship. While it may seem like a small thing, social interaction is a key part of maintaining mental well-being.
