Coronavirus. The latest guidance.
Updated December 2020
It is vital that everyone acts according to the government restrictions and follows the latest guidelines, to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Here at Home Instead Farnborough, Farnham and Fleet we are adhering to the latest government guidance concerning precautionary measures which best ensure the care and safety of our clients and CAREGivers.
Our CAREGivers receive comprehensive training in infection control and are strictly following industry guidance from the UK’s Public Health Authorities and World Health Organisation which includes emphasis on the importance of safe hand-washing practice.
In line with the latest Government advice all our CAREGivers are working hard to minimise the risk of transmission through safe working procedures. This includes the use of personal protection equipment (PPE) as needed. PPE includes the use of masks, aprons, gloves and/or eye protection when delivering care.
Our CAREGivers use Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and robust infection control training and hygiene measures which our CAREGivers are strictly following.
