Going Above & Beyond to Safeguard Against COVID-19
ACC Adult Home Care's Safety Precautions for You and Your Loved Ones
The most vulnerable demographic in this global pandemic is the elderly and immunocompromised. Because of that, ACC has been committed to going the extra mile to protect you and your loved ones, as well as our amazing caregivers.
Our Commitment to Your Safety
ACC Adult Home Care has been following the spread of this novel coronavirus since January, when it started spreading rapidly in regions of China. From the very beginning, it appeared that this was a serious threat to global health. Since then, we have stepped up our protocol to go beyond just what the CDC and WHO have recommended, which - at this time - still hasn't addressed ancillary healthcare fields such as ours. Because of that, we have taken what the CDC and WHO have designated as guidelines as a "bare-minimum" approach and implemented extra measures to ensure that you and your loved ones, as well as our caregivers and office staff are as protected as much a possible.
What We Are Doing
Aside from our normal health and safety protocols, we are:
Monitoring caregiver temperatures prior to their shifts.
Disinfecting all commonly touched surfaces before and after every shift.
Wearing gloves and masks upon entering the home.
Washing hands upon arrival and frequently throughout their shifts.
Wearing masks when working within 6 feet of our clients.
Wearing masks and gloves when providing direct care, such as during grooming, toileting, transferring, etc.
Wearing masks and gloves when running errands for our clients.
Increasing communication even more between office personnel and caregivers daily.
Following quarantine procedures.
Respecting and adhering to restricted travel orders, stay-in-place orders, and other guidelines while not on duty.
Adhering to any reasonable requests that each client/family may have.
Implementing more PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as it becomes available.
We Are All in This Together
The health and safety of our clients is paramount. For over 15 years, ACC Adult Home Care has continually raised the bar for standards of care in the in-home assisted living field. Rest assured, we are alert and prepared for the needs of our clients and community.
Whether it is our above and beyond approach to prevention, our high standards of care, our charity in and around our community, or our personal health and safety conduct in our own lives, ACC Adult Home Care is here for you and the ones you love.

What Our Clients Are Saying
"We feel that Melissa was an important part of why Mary was able to be so successful at home for such a long period of time, and that without her care and compassion for her patient, Mary would not have been able to avoid nursing home placement (something that she dreaded)."
