Our employees are at the heart of this and are there to serve you with Quality Personal Care and In-Home Care Services at Your Convenience – RAIN or SHINE COVID or No COVID.
At Paradise Home Care, keeping you and our community healthy and safe, as well as maintaining mental well-being, have always been and remain top priorities. As we face challenges presented by COVID-19, we strive to provide the best personal care and in-home care services and support you and your family need to stay healthy — physically, mentally and emotionally.
The safety of our clients and staff has always been and remains our top priority. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have implemented extraordinary measures and additional protocols, including mandatory masking in our office and client’s homes, to help ensure a safe and clean environment for our clients staff and our community. We continue to actively monitor and respond to all recommendations made by the CDC and our local health agencies.
Office & Client Home Visit Guidelines
We have implemented COVID-19 Safety Training for all our caregivers to apply enhanced cleaning procedures and use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) using hand washing and hand sanitizers. They are also instructed to use and follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and public health guidance.
Consistent with community efforts around social distancing to limit the exposure to individuals who may have contracted COVID-19 but are at that time asymptomatic, we have revised our office and client home Visit Policies to help protect our clients and their loved ones as well as our employees.
- All employees and visitors must bring and wear a mask before entering our office and must undergo a temperature check and screening.
- All employees should use hand sanitizing gel (or wash hands) upon entering our office as well as a client home to provide care services.

What is Telehealth?
Connecting With a Provider Has Never Been Easier
Simply put, Telehealth enables you to remotely connect with clinicians for healthcare services and information by phone, tablet or computer. Utilizing user-friendly, HIPAA-compliant video and communications technology, this service allows you to see and speak with a doctor, nurse or therapist just as you would during an in-person consultation — all in real time, respectful of social distancing practices, and from your own home, office or anywhere you may be. For your convenience and safety, virtual visits via telehealth technology are available to address many non-emergency health concerns. Virtual visits allow you to speak with a healthcare provider using a phone, tablet or computer from the comfort of your own home.
- Fast access to a provider for assessment, advice, education, intervention and monitoring, such as:
- Call with Doctor or Nurse
- Video Visit with Doctor or Nurse
- Eligibility for Telehealth will depend on your medical condition and ultimately will be determined by your provider.
For more information regarding medical eligibility, insurance coverage, and any out-of-pocket costs, please contact your provider.
