A MESSAGE FROM
DAVID KENNEDY
CEO & FOUNDER

As new mandatory restrictions continue to roll out, the team at Kennedy Care is continuously updating our safety measures and procedures to match and exceed the policies put into place for keeping everyone safe.

As an essential service, we are continuing to provide professional home care services for all our client’s needs. Home-based care for seniors, disabled adults, and children, all remain as important as ever during this time of uncertainty, and we are committed to keeping your family safe.

Any concerns you may have about caregiving services at this time is understandable. Please know that Kennedy Care is following CDC, State of Michigan, and local health system guidelines so we can continue to provide safe, high-quality care.


Below Are The Practices & Procedures We Are Adhering to For The Foreseeable Future:

1) Essential Personal Protective Equipment for our Life-Care Professionals (Caregivers) & Clients.

Caregiver & Client Care Packages have been and will continue to be delivered to all residencies where we provide service as needed. We have procured our own supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and hand-sanitizer to ensure that all our clients are being cared for in the safest way possible. Each of our PPE Care Packages contains a supply of:

  • Masks
  • Gloves
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Instructions for PPE use
  • Reminders regarding Infection Control

2) Wellness Check-Ins and Screenings for Both Our Life-Care Professionals and Our Clients

Our Life Care Professionals (Caregivers) are required to virtually check-in before each shift to confirm that they are symptom-free and feeling well. If they are not feeling well, at any time, they are to report to their supervisor and will be asked to call their primary physician to seek medical care and COVID-19 testing. They are asked to self-quarantine and will not return to work until all CDC guidelines have been met. 

Additionally, Kennedy Care is staying in constant communication with our clients to make sure they too are feeling well and if not, please let us know so we can take the appropriate steps to help keep everyone informed and as safe and healthy as possible.


3) Enhanced Cleaning & Hygiene Practices

We are using enhanced infection control procedures while in the client’s home to help keep everyone safe and healthy.

  • Hand sanitizing before entry into a client’s home
  • Hand washing once in the client’s home and throughout the course of their shift
  • Additional cleaning and wiping down of surfaces, light switches, doorknobs, etc.
  • Continuing to provide help with cleaning around the home that would normally take place during an LCP’s shift.
  • Hand-washing upon leaving the client’s home.

4) Additional Training Around Coronavirus & Safety Measures

Our Life Care Professionals (Caregivers) are required to participate in additional training around the coronavirus in an effort to keep themselves, their clients, and their families safe.

Our caregivers complete online training modules to make sure they are kept up-to-date on COVID-19 knowledge, mode of transmission, infection control practices, and social distancing guidelines.


The team at Kennedy Care is dedicated to Keeping Families Safe and you can count on us to deliver the best care for your loved ones during this unfortunate time and after.  Whatever challenges the world is faced with, our team is continuing to innovate and develop the best practices to provide our clients with the highest quality home care in the industry. 

If you or your loved ones need help with home care and are looking for an agency to provide service, we hope you give us a call so we can discuss your needs. Our Nurse Care Managers will develop a customized care plan based on your needs and pair you with a compassionate Life Care Professional to assist you.

We are here to help.

Sincerely, 

David Kennedy
