Agape Hospice Care is committed to providing safe and effective care during the pandemic.
Agape Hospice Care continues to deliver the most personalized hospice services where care is needed, whether in the home or a health care community. Our team is taking proactive measures to reduce and prevent exposure to COVID-19. We are committed to protecting patients and residents of health care communities from the spread of infectious diseases. We are accepting new patients, providing quality, patient-focused services, and, as always, are here to support our community.
We continue to monitor any changes in the CDC’s guidelines, The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NPCO), Georgia Department of Public Health, and local public health authorities.
Practicing high standards for infection prevention and control has always been a priority for Agape Hospice Care. We are dedicated to our patients and staff’s health and well-being and want to share the precautions we are taking.
Our team has developed a “social distancing plan” geared towards reducing person-to-person contact, including postponing bereavement support groups and limiting personnel and visitors to our administrative offices. Additionally, many direct-care team members will work remotely from home when not providing care. We have implemented additional precautions to safeguard employees and patients by taking employee temperatures each morning and again before entering any skilled nursing or assisted living communities. Furthermore, employees are screened each day with the following questions:
