Acti-Kare’s greatest priority is the health and safety of our clients and caregivers. Acti-Kare’s leadership is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure that we have the most accurate and up to date information. As you are aware this situation is fluid, so changes are happening rapidly and because of this we will adjust our protocols as needed.
As part of our standard operating procedures, Acti-Kare caregivers receive communicable disease training and will follow CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of illness. We strive to maintain the health and safety of our clients and caregivers through communication and monitoring symptoms. Our response plan is based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control.
Acti-Kare will continue to provide our clients with the highest level of care possible.
Visit any critical care unit, children’s hospital, or other specialty inpatient facility, and you’ll find a common feature: therapy dogs. For decades, healthcare practitioners have understood the surprisingly positive effects on patients of time spend with cute and cuddly dogs.
Doctors are in increasingly short supply these days, so it’s not uncommon for patients to spend more time with physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs) than their actual MD. This trend has sparked controversy among physicians and patients alike.
