McKenney Home Care has been working with Vestire Alter Design, a custom tailor in Naples, FL to make high quality fabric masks for their employees during this time. All McKenney Caregivers have been provided the masks to ensure their protection and the protection of McKenney Clients.
“As soon as Governor DeSantis set forth the law that anyone entering Healthcare facilities would need a mask we knew there would be a problem due to the shortage of masks and other protective gear” said Michele McKenney, “so we immediately hired Vestire to make over 200 high quality fabric masks.” Vestire worked around the clock to ensure delivery of over 200 masks within two days allowing McKenney to distribute the masks and ensure the protection of their Caregivers and Clients.
“The protection of our Caregivers and Clients has been our number one priority” said Michele McKenney. “We are grateful to Vestire for their very quick response as well as the high quality masks they provided to us.”
McKenney has also embarked on an aggressive education campaign with their Caregivers, mailing educational information and providing gloves and disinfectant spray to each of them and having them complete safety Covid-19 Questionnaires.
Home Care is an essential medical service, the ability to keep our elderly safe at home and out of the hospital and other facilities is more important now than ever. For elderly in facilities, having a private aid keep them company and provide socialization while clients are confined to their rooms is appreciated by families and clients alike.
