Home Health Care Through The Holidays – Even During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Like much of this very unusual year, the 2020 holiday season will look and feel different than most. As difficult as it may be to celebrate away from loved ones this year, we know your top priority is making sure loved ones are happy, safe, and as healthy as possible.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Americans are adjusting their holiday traditions and choosing to alter plans to limit potential exposure within their circle of family and friends, especially with elderly parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, and friends who may be at higher risk of complications from the coronavirus.

So if you aren’t making your regular rounds to celebrate with, check on and help your loved ones, how can you make sure they are comfortable and safe, especially if their physical or mental health is beginning to shift? Or perhaps you are a local resident in the Sarasota area who is looking for an extra hand personally. Is there a way to ensure the individuals you invite into your home are caring professionals you can count on? How can you make sure you connect with the best nursing agency to provide additional help in your home or within a hospital room, rehabilitation center, skilled or assisted living facility?

Take Care Private Duty Home Health Care has been answering these questions and fulfilling these important needs for more than 25 years. With more than 500 caregivers and staff across five offices from Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte Counties, our team of quality caregivers and nurses is what truly sets us apart.

All Take Care caregivers are employees—not independent contractors—who undergo a rigorous interview process and training in addition to extensive background screenings with fingerprinting and drug testing. Upon completion of orientation, a caregiver is then carefully matched with a client taking into consideration the level of care, personality preferences, skills, experience, and abilities. As much as possible, scheduling requests for consistent caregivers are honored. Also of great importance, the impressive size of the Take Care team allows for contingencies to make sure you or your loved ones have coverage no matter what—and peace of mind knowing that the nursing agency is locally, family and nurse-owned.

Whether a helping hand is required to secure ingredients for that Thanksgiving family recipe, bandage changes that are necessary on Christmas Day, your loved one wishes to ring in the New Year with some company, or help with medication management is your top priority, Take Care can help. Take Care caregivers assist with grocery shopping, laundry, and light housekeeping while providing a human connection and companionship. And heaven forbid an emergency occurs, clients of Take Care Advisor, and their family members, can rest assured a specially-trained registered nurse (RN) will serve as a medical advocate for our clients, day or night, 365 days a year either with planned appointments or in the event of an emergency.

If you could use a helping hand personally or if you’re concerned about someone you love this holiday season, please contact our team to explore how our services may help with your circumstances and health care priorities.  Take Care can support you in taking care of yourself or your loved ones – on Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s, and all other days of the year.

What Our Clients Have to Say

My wife had recent surgery and needed care around the clock. The support I received from the office nurse on care  placement was exceptional. The care provided 12 hours nightly by the nurse, Stacy, was superb. She was above and beyond professional. We could not have done it with out her. Thanks to all involved.
