In this time of great uncertainty — particularly as it relates to our older neighbors and those with compromised immune systems — Golden Age Elder Care remains open and fully staffed to ensure ongoing care, camaraderie and compassion both for current clients and those whose circumstances have changed and now need home health care.
Our services are considered “essential” under Governor Cuomo’s New York on PAUSE (Policies Assure Uniform Safety for Everyone) Act, effective 8 p.m. Sunday, March 22 statewide, which means even after the executive order goes into effect, we will still match caregivers with new clients, visit those already under our hourly care, and live with those under 24-hour agreements.
We are doing all we can to ensure safety and a sterile environment:
- Our caregivers are self-isolating unless they are with clients.
- All GAEC caregivers drive; they will not be utilizing public transportation to arrive at their clients’ homes.
- We are providing masks to clients and working with FEMA to secure additional masks as they become available
In addition — for our Suffolk County clientele — GAEC’s owner, Jenna, will personally run errands and drop off items so they can safely shelter-in-place at home.
If you are not a current client but your circumstances have changed — hospitals and rehab centers (including Peconic Bay Medical Center) are discharging patients with non-urgent medical needs — please call, email or message us on Facebook to arrange for in-home care.
