COVID-19 INFORMATION

Nurse Maude at Level 2

Homecare 

During this difficult and unsettling time of Covid-19, we want to reassure you that we are following Ministry of Health directives and advice and will continue to provide you with information on what you can expect from Nurse Maude.

Our thanks to you all for continuing to support family and friends at home.  We know this is not always easy, especially in times of stress and uncertainty.

Let us know of any changes to their health or support needs so we can make safe decisions and support them to seek medical attention if needed.

We want you to be fully aware of what you can expect from Nurse Maude Homecare every step of the way during the different alert levels.

At Alert Level 2, following Ministry of Health directions, we will be providing regular support.

Before our staff enter your home, they will need to ask you some questions, so we know you and / or the people you live with are well.

We may need to pause or reschedule your visit if you answer yes to any of these questions, but we will work with you so services are provided as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s important that everyone is healthy and well. This includes you, the people we support and the people who work for us.

When we are providing care, our team member will wear a mask and where possible follow physical distancing rules while they carry out their work, such as preparing medications or meals.

For more information or any questions regarding your support please contact Nurse Maude.
