A Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update from LifeCare In-Home Care & Home Health President and CEO

We the People

Jane Shekman, Founder and CEO of LifeCare In-Home Care & Home Health Services

Right now, everyone is facing the same threat, uncertainty, and fear. From grocery workers to mailmen, each person has felt an impact due to this virus in one way or another. That being said, each person has a specific role that they play in order to somehow better the life of their neighbor. For some, it is staying home, while for others it is being on the frontlines and fighting COVID head-on.

Lifecare has a special place on that frontline, and it is our job, as a team, to do what we can to help those who cannot help themselves, especially during this time. It is incredibly hard to stand up and assume the responsibility of someone else’s care, but during this time, it becomes even harder. Despite this, LifeCare clinicians and caregivers are rising up, and taking charge, meanwhile providing the best care. That takes courage, strong-will, and a passion for your work, things that the people at lifecare all have.

As surge continued, LifeCare was well prepared and started taking on COVID-19 positive clients for home health and home care services.  This allowed our patients to continue their recuperation safely at home while easing the burden for healthcare facilities.

“A hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people” – Maya Angelou

We want to greatly thank clinicians and caregivers who truly wear the invisible capes day in and out, and your profound impact on those around you.

We protect

It is essential as a team, and workforce, that the safety and wellbeing of our people are put first, which is something that is always prioritized here. Our heroes are protected. LifeCare invested in enough personal protective equipment for our personnel and enhanced training on COVID infection prevention control protocols. This equipment is made to ensure safety on both sides, whether it is the nurse or client, and to give nurses and clinicians a safe environment to provide their best care.

Overall, we at Lifecare are not only prepared by the shipments of protective equipment, but also through the team that we have. There is none other that is as motivated to continue providing care, whether you are on the frontlines with patients, or behind desks continuing to monitor and adapt to the current situation.
