How to get your business back on track during the pandemic - Shared screen with speaker view
Hello, is anyone having patients and family sign Covid liability waivers? If so, is there a template available?
We will ask your question at the end.
Sorry I am late. I had a client situation.
We are recording this presentation. Don't worry, you can listen at another time to what was missed.
Are any agencies implementing a covid testing policy for their aides?
Great question, we will ask at the end.
I am; they answer questions every assignment and take temperature
Yes we do the same and if they have symptoms they must get tested. However, a lot of inquires ask how often we test them. We don't have policy in place that requires aides to be tested on a regular basis. I would like to know If any agencies are testing their aides every 2 weeks/once a month like facilities do?
How do we get that system? Sorry not techie
We do not have a waiver
In facilities, we test every week
If new new client, we test aide prior
and we are in NJ
We do screening - not testing - testing is just a picture of time
With regards to the VetAssist program. Can a veteran receive this assistance if he/she owns their own home?
prior to starting we test the aide
Its such a false sense of security. They can be exposed the very next day after receiving a test. I explain that to our clients so that they understand and know all obstacles.
Testing in conjunction with safety protocol, temp taking
In our area it has been taking 7-10 days to get test results back.
can you review the process of referring a client to VA please? Thanks!
In regards to the VetAssist Program and VA Aid and Attendance, yes you can own a home and qualify
Great answer, Jamie!
So the bank account has to be less than $129,000 to qualify for VetAssist, right?
The current asset limit is $129,094
Assets include checking , savings, CD, annuities,
There is an eligibility tool on www.veteranshomecare.com that can help you screen clients.
Do surviving spouses of Vet's qualify for HC too?
Yes, surviving spouses may qualify too!
