Infection Prevention

  • By Admin on October 19, 2017
  • Each year upon the third week of October arrives International Infection Prevention Week. Healthcare professionals along with other individuals help to raise awareness during this time about the importance of preventing infections and how to best protect yourself from them. This year from October 15th through October 21st, we take a closer look at how to remain healthy and, in turn, maintain quality of life.

    When it comes to providing a high standard of in-home care services, we at Affordable Care at Home believe infection prevention should be supported and put into practice all year long. Our team of certified nursing assistants and home health aides are highly trained and knowledgeable in the spread and prevention of infections. Having a caregiver with a strong background and a deep understanding of how to avert illness and maintain your health is imperative. Some clients may be even more susceptible to contract an infection than others due to an impaired immune system or other factors. Affordable Care at Home offers a wide range of services to our clients that help support and preserve their healthy lifestyle, including:

    Heavy Cleaning – Mopping, cleaning under furniture and behind refrigerators/ovens, scrubbing bathrooms, laundry etc. to prevent bacteria and mold

    Food Storage and Meal Prep – Ensuring that food is kept in a proper place and at an appropriate temperature and then properly prepared in a cleanly manner

    Wound Dressing – Changing and cleaning of wounds and bandages as recommended

    Medication Reminders – Alerting the client when it is time to take their medications

    Personal Hygiene Maintenance – Assisting the client with showering, bathing, grooming, hand washing, teeth brushing and cleanliness after using the facilities

    Living in clean surroundings, taking your medications as recommended by your doctor and practicing proper hygiene play key roles in staying healthy and avoiding serious health hazards. Affordable Care at Home places the safety, comfort and well-being of our clients at the top of our list, providing services conducive to maintaining their quality of life. In honor of International Infection Prevention Week, we wish all in our care and in our community good health and quality living.
