In an effort to keep all their home care and hospice clients safe, Pemi-Baker Community Health is taking preventative measures by testing their field staff for Covid-19. A team from the National Guard completed the tests last week for staff coming in contact with clients in their homes as well as therapists and administrative assistants working in their physical therapy office on Boulder Point.
“Our field staff are continuing to provide the much needed skilled services to our hospice and homecare patients during the Covid-19 pandemic. The patients we serve are able to remain at home due to our home visits that are being made by our dedicated team that consists of RN’s LPN’s, LNA’s, PT’s, OT’s, social workers and Chaplin. It’s very important to keep our clients safe and that we do not have any staff that are asymptomatic spreaders,” said Ernest Roy, PT, DPT, Clinical Supervisor PBCH-Home Health.
For over 52 years, Pemi-Baker Community Health has served family, friends and neighbors in eighteen towns and they are the home care and hospice provider of choice for Grafton County. PBCH partners with patients, their doctor, family and caregivers, helping home bound individuals in need of skilled medical services during recovery from illness, injury, surgery. Their Palliative and Hospice teams provide comfort and support for those who are facing life-limiting illnesses.
