Winter 2024 Updates


Communication is Key:

We want to hear from you! ALL changes of condition, falls, medical events, and requests for schedule changes must be CALLED INTO THE OFFICE by the end of your shift with the affected client. Reports must be made regardless of day or time of the shift. A staff member is always available to take your call and inform the appropriate parties. Failure to make appropriate reports to the office in a timely manner will result in corrective action.

COVID-19, Influenza, and Illness

Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order 4 free at-⁠home tests. Visit https://www.covid.gov/tools-and-resources/resources/tests to get your free COVID test.


All illness symptoms should be reported to the office as soon as possible. Please speak to a team member if you are experiencing:

  • fever or chills

  • cough

  • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • muscle pain or body aches

  • sore throat or cough

  • headache

  • loss of taste or smell

  • If you are exposed to COVID-19 or have tested positive

  • If you are experiencing symptoms but are not testing positive

  • If you learn of an exposure or positive case within your Client's family or facility setting

A rapid COVID-19 test may be required for shift attendance. When you take a test, please take a photo of your results and email it to: HR169@homeinstead.com.
